APPLE IS WORKING on a foldable OLED phone with LG Display, the display-making arm of the LG Group, according to sources speaking to The Bell in Korea (English version via The Investor).

Patently Apple posted a report back in December 2016 titled "Korean Report Wildly Speculates that LG is Working with Apple, Google & Microsoft to Deliver Foldable Devices by 2018".

First we heard of Samsung's plans to produce a smartphone with a bending, foldable screen, and now it's Apple's turn for a lap of the rumour mill. However, it's been suggested that Tim Cook and co do not want to develop too close a relationship with an arch rival.

Apple usually starts a new phone project a year before launch, sharing key features, including the panel, with suppliers. These included a tablet that folded into a smartphone and a clamshell-like handset. For this reason, Apple may have established a partnership with LG to store his work from his biggest competitor.

In the end, reports claim that Apple is actively considering a significant investment in the LG plant responsible for the manufacturing of flexible OLED displays.

LG has recently started its first OLED production for phones at its E5 plant in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province.

LG Display has been toiling away on its foldable OLED panel prototype, completing it about 3 years ago and upgrading yield rate and durability in the time since then.

Beyond the rumored production date, no other hints about Apple's foldable smartphone have surfaced. The company might introduce the tech giant into the production foray in the last few months, but as of right now, only the Cupertino manufacturer and LG Display are aware of what sort of design is expected. The same can be said for Samsung's own foldable phone as well.
