Apple Reportedly Working On Foldable Phone With LG Display

Looks like Apple might lose the race against Samsung when it comes to releasing a foldable flagship but at least the company will know that its secrets are kept safe for the time being. The Face ID, on the other hand, allows users to make payments using the Apple Pay.

If this year's bezel-less iPhone X didn't impress you, Apple has something else up its sleeve to dazzle you in the future.

Korean publication The Bell, claims Apple has approached LG instead of Samsung Display, which produces the OLED screen for the new iPhone X, over fears that it could leak Apple's plans and screen technology to Samsung Electronics, which produces the Galaxy smartphone range.

It's also been reported that LG's parts division has a similar team working on internal components for the device.

Orders 166 phones and claims refund
According to the police, Shivam allegedly also purchased 150 pre-activated SIM cards to place the orders from different numbers. In yet another case of online scam , a 21-year old man from India's national capital: New Delhi scammed Amazon of Rs 50 lakh.

The LCD-screen iPhone 8 series phones, which have display sizes of 4.7 and 5.5 inches, went on sale September 22.

LG recently started its first OLED production for phones at its E5 plant in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province, as per a CNN News18 report.

Piper Jaffray said the findings are a clear "positive point" for the current iPhone upgrade supercycle, which includes the iPhone 8 as well as the upcoming high-end iPhone X. The survey polled 6,100 teenagers across 44 states, with an average age of 15.9 years. Apple's decision to go with LG may be an attempt to decrease its dependence on its biggest rival. LG reportedly completed its own foldable OLED panel prototype two to three years ago and has been upgrading the durability and the yield rate. Now Apple is seen moving to LG with foldable panels.

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". The Investor notes, though, that LGD is expected to begin OLED iPhone screen production at its E6 plant in Paju in 2019.
