First Samsung, now Apple plans foldable smartphone with help from LG

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

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

It's also been reported that LG's parts division has a similar team working on internal components for the device. LG Display has allegedly created a task force to develop a foldable OLED panel for the future iPhone.

Apple's choice of South Korea-based LG may be attributed to its impressive gains in foldable screen technology over the years. Moon Capital Management LLC's holdings in Apple were worth $1,214,000 as of its most recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The report by The Investor, citing industry sources, claims that the panel production will start from 2020.

When Apple refreshes its iPad Pro line-up next year, they are likely to include the company's TrueDepth Camera system and support for Face ID on the high-end tablets.

Lufthansa set to sign Air Berlin deal
But the pressure was on to reach a deal this week, as Air Berlin's planes will no longer be allowed to fly after October 28 under insolvency rules.

Apple Inc (Apple) designs, manufactures and markets mobile communication and media devices, personal computers, and portable digital music players, and a variety of related software, services, peripherals, networking solutions, and third-party digital content and applications. There are chances, however, that Apple could launch these new products in the first half of 2018.

We can expect this foldable display to be an OLED panel.

Another firm, LG Innotek, is working on a rigid but flexible printed circuit board for the gadget. It wouldn't be the first time we saw Apple take something someone else invented and ideal it to an extent where we actually think that it is an innovation.

That is not to say that the foldable iPhone leak might take place from LG's side; it might definitely take place but there are smaller chances of that happening.
