Apple is partnering with LG for a foldable iPhone

A report by a Korean website pointed out that LG Display has formed a task force to create a foldable OLED screen for a foldable iPhone model that is likely to be launched in 2020. 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.

Although Samsung is still expected to supply OLED panels for Apple's 2018 iPhones, LG, which recently started OLED production for phones at Chinese plant, is reportedly planning to supply iPhone panels from 2019 onwards.

Apple launched the iPhone X in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the release of the first iPhone.

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. Of course, it's hard to imagine that the South Korean tech giant will be the only one to deliver such a device.

Their place at a eighth successive World Cup had been under threat since they succumbed to home losses at the hands of Mexico and Costa Rica last November.

Apple has also put an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel and the iPhone X will support HDR, TrueTone and 3D Touch display. It is so because LG has recently started manufacturing OLED panels at their E5 plant in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province. Sources say the two firms have tentatively agreed on the investment but details have not yet been finalized. However, if Apple decides to put the latest TrueDepth camera and Face ID feature on iPad Pro, the sale for the device could go up considerably.

As everyone already knows, iPhone X and Galaxy Note 8 which are the world's most powerful and popular smartphones ship with bezel less displays. Twenty-one percent of US survey respondents and 29% of USA iPhone owners plan to purchase an Apple Watch in the next year.

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".
