Apple Rumoured to be Developing Foldable OLED iPhone with LG

Jony Ive's New Yorker Interview

A report out of South Korea claims that LG Display has created a task force to develop a foldable OLED screen for an iPhone model likely to be launched in 2020.

Alongside the screen, a future foldable iPhone would also require a flexible circuit board and Apple may also assign the printing of such a board to LG, as per a report from Korean website The Investor. 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.

Meanwhile, Apple has seemingly just begun work on the foldable handset.

Last month, Apple made history when it released iPhone X. This smartphone refreshed everyone's idea of what an iPhone should look like and it completely changed up the expectations for future Apple devices. For next year's new iPhone, the Korean tech giant is also expected to be the sole supplier.

Reviewing the Insider Trends for Alaska Air Group, Inc. (ALK)
Following the completion of the sale, the chairman now owns 153,546 shares of the company's stock, valued at $14,235,249.66. It improved, as 51 investors sold ALK shares while 150 reduced holdings. 64 funds opened positions while 168 raised stakes.

LG has recently started its first OLED production for phones at its E5 plant in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province. Already, LG manufactures most of the displays used by Apple. The screen on the iPhone X is where Apple focused its design.

"While iPhone contributes the majority of revenue and profits, Apple Watch is growing in importance, potentially doubling revenue contribution to Apple top line in the next two years", Huberty said. If the rumor is true, a foldable OLED smartphone is on the way.

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.

A display which folds completely in half could see a new generation of smartphones which fold open to the size of small tablets, although it is yet to be seen if such a mechanism would be compact and attractive enough for Apple's notoriously high standards.
