Apple Reportedly Working on a Foldable iPhone for 2020
If a new report from South Korea turns out to be true, Apple is reportedly working with LG Display, a display solutions arm of LG, on a foldable iPhone. Citing a report from The Bell (via The Investor), The Korea Herald reported on Wednesday that LG has created a “task force” to build a foldable OLED display for a future iPhone model.
LG has been working on its own foldable OLED panels for years, who completed its first such prototype two to three years ago and has been reportedly improving the durability and yield rate ever since.
Not only is LG’s screen-making subsidiary working alongside Apple on the project, but the parts-making LG Innotek is also working on developing a “rigid flexible printed circuit board” or RFPCB for such a device. The handset could go on sale in 2020.
