Apple’s first foldable iPhone may use LG’s OLED panel
Apple may cooperate with LG Display in the development of the first folding screen iPhone. Once LG Display’s OLED flexible panel is approved by Apple, it will be used in the first folding screen iPhone in subsequent mass production.
Although Samsung was the first to launch a folding screen mobile phone and announced that they have a great OLED flexible panel, they also provided OLED flexible panels to Apple before, but today’s news is that LG is reportedly helping Apple to develop the much-awaited foldable iPhone.
We have already learned that LG Display will provide LTPS displays for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 mini. It may be because LG Display wants to package and sell a set of product solutions and provides very good cost-effective conditions, so Apple plans to try it.
However, we still don’t know when Apple’s folding screen iPhone will be available. Although some previous news stated that Apple will release a stylus-enabled foldable iPhone in 2023, and the product will look similar to Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip, but there is no detailed evidence to support the time prediction.
According to sources, Apple has made two prototype iPhones with folding screens. However, due to the lessons learned from the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Apple may not rush into the market, but try to make the product as complete as possible.
