Apple is working with LG Display on a foldable iPhone for 2020

Apple is working with LG Display on a foldable iPhone for 2020

In fact, Apple is reportedly already working on its own foldable iPhone. In the case of the foldable iPhone, it seems that LG will take the place of the South Korean giant. The iPhone manufacturers partnered with their top competitor, as Samsung is the only company that can supply Apple with the organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens needed for their brand new, bezel-less iPhone X.

That's according to The Bell, a news outlet in Korea, as translated by The Investor.

According to The Korea Herald, Apple usually starts working on a new phone one year before its launch, and suppliers start receiving the device's key features and details about its panel during that year. The iPhone X, like many others in the market, is an all-screen, no-home button, notch-wielding device with dual cameras and wireless charging. The Company's products and services include iPhone, iPad, Mac, iPod, Apple TV, a portfolio of consumer and professional software applications, the iOS and OS X operating systems, iCloud, and a variety of accessory, service and support offerings.

It had been thought that Apple would work with Samsung to produce flexible screens for future iPhones.

This is exactly what the Cupertino, California-based tech firm is trying to prevent from occurring in the future again.

Another firm, LG Innotek, is working on a rigid but flexible printed circuit board for the gadget.

Sources say that panel production could start in 2020, meaning any sort of foldable iPhone could be launched the same year. It is in the E6 that LG may manufacture the foldable display panels for Apple. Apple may have made this deal to change smartphone's understanding again. While we recognize that the consideration to purchase an Apple Watch does not necessarily translate to a purchase, we see an upward bias to Street Apple Watch forecasts. This could also happen with the foldable iPhone.
