Is Apple working with LG to launch a foldable iPhone by 2020?

We understand that Apple has been working on a lot of innovations from time to time - the latest being a TouchID embedded into its iPhone display or the FaceID complemented by a bezel-less display. The iPhone X has been a revolution for Apple in terms of design. Its Home button, later integrated with TouchID, has been a part of the iconic design for years.


However, this may not be the latest innovation like we all have been expecting.


If the Korean news outlet The Bell can be believed, Apple is reportedly working with LG to come up with a flexible display. The result is that by 2020, we are going to see foldable iPhones in production. With the company getting positive feedback on its innovation designs so far, trying something new again could be a great idea for Apple.


As cited by many, flexible displays definitely seem to be the future for the smartphone industry. Samsung has been working on developing the technology for years now, with a possible product rumoured for next year. After all, the curved displays on the company’s Note series of smartphones has been a step in that direction, but edge display are a gimmick that probably won’t last the next couple of years. It’s likely they were always meant to be a stepping stone to greater things.


LG has also been hard at work to develop a flexible display, and going with Apple instead of Samsung would help the former distance itself from its biggest competitor in the global market. After all, since Apple has been forced to partner with Samsung for OLED displays on the iPhone X, it’s going to end up making them billions of dollars for all of Apple’s own sales.


Of course, neither Apple nor LG have yet commented on the report, but at this point it seems credible enough to be cautiously optimistic. Perhaps by 2020 we are going to have clamshell iPhones with flexible OLED displays.
