LG’s smartphone division may have an uncertain future, but it has no shortage of ideas and development potential. According to Taiwanese media reports DigiTimes, Apple commissioned LG Display to develop a foldable panel for a future iPhone.
According to industry sources, LG’s division, responsible for the development and manufacture of display panels, is only working with Apple on a prototype. It is not yet confirmed whether future iPhones will have foldable OLEDs made by LG, or Cupertino will look to other manufacturers once the design is finalized.
Reports earlier this week also revealed that Apple plans to bring a foldable phone in 2023, with support for Apple Pencil. That will put the company four years behind Huawei, Samsung and Motorola, which launched their first foldable devices in 2019, but perhaps the company will only look to enter once the technology has matured enough.
