  • Apple is working with LG Display on a foldable iPhone for 2020

Apple's iPhone X is believed to feature displays exclusively from Samsung, as rival OLED panels from the likes of LG weren't up to snuff.

That rivalry may, however, start to overshadow their partnership soon.

Apple also quietly patented a foldable iPhone concept, filing on August 28, a year ago - detailing a device which uses "carbon nanotubes" to allow the screen to fold while still working.

While LG has supposedly created a task force to develop a foldable OLED screen for a future iPhone, unnamed industry sources claim panel production won't begin until 2020.

There is rumor that Apple could bring as much as $2.6 billion in LG's new display plant, but the deal has not been finalized yet. The feature that stood out the most when Apple introduced iPhone X was its TrueDepth camera and Face ID 3D laser face-scanning technology.

Looking at how many leaks have poured with tremendous amounts of viscosity throughout this year, Apple will be extremely careful with its steps, and unfortunately, it will have to keep Samsung out of this project at least for now. LG, meanwhile, has reportedly completed its own foldable OLED panel prototype years ago, and is now working to increase durability and the yield rate of the same.

Apple and Samsung are both making money off the iPhone X. It might seem absurd, but it is true.

Firstly, this is the first time we're hearing about Apple planning for a product a few years in advance.

Samsung now supplies all of the OLED panels for this year's iPhone X, and the Korean electronics giant has reportedly been tapped to be the sole OLED supplier for next year's iPhone models too. However, the report adds that foldable display panel production for iPhones may start by early 2019. Now Apple is seen moving to LG with foldable panels.

Samsung is now the sole manufacturer of the OLED displays, NAND flash and DRAM chip in quantities required by Apple for its iPhones.
