Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable 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. 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. In case you aren't aware, Kuo is widely regarded as a credible source for all things Apple. Other info indicated that the Galaxy X (Samsung's foldable phone) will be manufactured in very limited quantities and be sold in Korean shores only.

Apple is reportedly working on a foldable iPhone in partnership with LG- and not Samsung, who is the present supplier of OLED displays for its latest iPhone. Not only is LG's screen-making subsidiary working alongside Apple on the project, but the parts-making LG Innotek has also set up a team to develop the necessary flexible circuit boards for such a device.

Among those planning to buy a new iPhone, 20% expect to get the premium iPhone X, while 23% plan to get the iPhone 8 and 16% plan to get the iPhone 8 Plus. Samsung is the current manufacturer of OLED panels for the Apple iPhone X.
