Has Apple enlisted LG for foldable iPhone display?

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. 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. Apple's iPhone X is believed to feature displays exclusively from Samsung, as rival OLED panels from the likes of LG weren't up to snuff.

Samsung, however, seems to have an edge over Apple when it comes to foldable smartphones. That, and the fact that Apple probably won't want to launch one until the tech has been perfected.

Reports from Korea say Apple and LG are unlikely to have anything ready commercially until 2020, giving Samsung the chance to build a healthy lead in the process. While Samsung has reputedly been working on a foldable or flexible smartphone for quite some time, a report on Wednesday claimed that Apple is also developing a similar device. That's been changing with the likes of the LG V30 and Google Pixel 2, both with LGD OLED displays.

The tiny particles that were found are believed to be of watchmakers who use the metals to decorate their expensive timepieces. The Swiss metal concentrations complied with regulations and were removed before humans drank the water again, the study said.

Apple Watch demand the biggest positive surprise -potentially doubling revenue by 2019. The same can be said for Samsung's own foldable phone as well. Kuo stated that Apple wants to offer a premium experience with the iPad Pro which is similar to iPhone X. It is worth mentioning here that iPad pro retails for nearly the same price for which iPhone X is planned to be released. LG is said to have already finished its foldable OLED panel prototype two or three years ago. Since then, the company has worked on improving durability and production yields.

LG's first OLED panels will be used in devices for its own LG Electronics division and a few Chinese handset makers.

Apple is considering investing in the E6 plant in a push for LG to beef up OLED production.
