Apple placing bets on LG's display for an upcoming foldable smartphone

Apple Reportedly Working With LG Display on a Foldable iPhone for 2020

The new iPhone X is Apple's first iPhone to come with an OLED display. Both the companies are said to be partnering for developing a foldable display for the iPhone.

That rivalry may, however, start to overshadow their partnership soon.

New iPhone: A recent rumor claims that Apple is already working on its next big change to iPhone, reports BGR.

The Bell says that LGD has set up a task force to develop the foldable screen, while its component-making sister company LG Innotek has started a team to develop the "rigid flexible (yeah, we know...) printed circuit board", or RFPCB. The tech major is reportedly collaborating with LG Display on a foldable handset.

We can expect this foldable display to be an OLED panel. The Electronics firm is said to be working on a new plant in Paju, S. Korea for OLED panels and Apple is ready to pay them. Even then, this will only happen if LG Display can produce the screens reliably and in the massive scale Apple would require.

Nokia 9 CAD renders show the smartphone's possible design
The Nokia 8 features an auxiliary audio port, so we don't see a reason why the company chose to ditch it in the Nokia 9. Today, we've come across a fresh leak suggesting that HMD Global has another high-end Nokia in the works, the Nokia 9.

Game monster enters Razer smartphone market
Min-Liang Tan, the CEO of Razer had only said it will mainly focus on gaming as well as on entertainment. Specifically, the company says it is planning the "biggest unveiling" for a new device on that date.

Apple's choice of South Korea-based LG may be attributed to its impressive gains in foldable screen technology over the years.

The technology giant announced that consumers can pre-order the iPhone X on October 27 and the units will go on sale on November 3.

In the end, reports claim that Apple is actively considering a significant investment in the LG plant responsible for the manufacturing of flexible OLED displays. Samsung is at the advantage here if this timeline shakes out since its bendable device will be in the market by 2018. Lastly our cover graphic shows an Apple patent figure of a foldable iPhone from their granted patent for such a device issued in November 2016.

Encouragingly, teen enthusiasm for the Apple brand doesn't extend just to smartphones.

Samsung is expected to launch its first commercial foldable phone next year, after trailing two phones in 2016 under the Project Valley name.
