Apple is partnering with LG for a foldable iPhone

Apple foldable OLED iPhone ditches Samsung

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

The report claims Apple isn't planning to put a bending handset into production until 2020.

Developing a phone from Apple takes a minimum of 12 months before the device is officially launched and in order to get production underway, key elements of the device such as the design and hardware will be shared with its manufacturing partners.

In a note to investors, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said the Face ID will be featured in the iPad in an effort to bridge the gap between iPad and iPhone users. The rumor says that AAPL has concerns that Samsung Display will report its plans to Samsung Electronics, which makes rival smartphones.

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 feature that stood out the most when Apple introduced iPhone X was its TrueDepth camera and Face ID 3D laser face-scanning technology. A photo that went up yesterday on Imgur shows the device in white packaging, while three other images on Reddit show the front and back of an iPhone X that appears black but is likely the color Apple calls "Space Gray". As of now, Samsung is expected to continue supplying OLED panels for at least one more year.

The report adds that LG has been working on its own foldable OLED panels for years, and is reportedly improving its durability as well as yield rate.

Amid Samsung's near monopoly in mobile OLED production, Apple has been strengthening its partnership with LG Display, its long-time LCD partner.

Apple's CEO told the UK Independent yesterday that "We don't give a rat's about being first, we want to be the best, and give people a great experience". Some sources claim that Apple may invest in LG's new plant to beef up OLED panel production though details are yet to be finalised.
