Apple agrees with LG for foldable display

Postado Outubro 12, 2017

According to a MacRumors report, only the iPad Pro lineup will feature support for FaceID, and the "regular" iPad models will continue to feature Apple's Touch ID system for fingerprint scanning. 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.

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.

Apple has teamed up with LG to start work on an iPhone with a foldable screen.

Claims in the Korean technology media claim Apple has tasked LG with creating a bending and foldable screen for a future iPhone.

According to Mr Kuo, the reasoning behind Apple to add the TrueDepth camera system to the iPad Pro lineup would be to offer the users an experience that would be consistent with the iPhone X. Apple is hoping to break its dependence on Samsung's OLED screens by deepening its partnership with LG. There were rumors that Samsung was also working on a smart device with a similarly foldable display.

Meanwhile, Samsung is exclusively supplying panels for the latest iPhone X - the first OLED iPhone. Given the fact that the South Korean company has already been working for years on this project, this reasoning seems to be a little faulty, to say the least.

Samsung is also set to bring out the foldable smartphone sometime early next year and is reportedly going to be called "Galaxy X".

LG has reportedly completed its own foldable OLED panel prototype and has been upgrading the durability and the yield rate.

Firstly, this is the first time we're hearing about Apple planning for a product a few years in advance. 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.
