Foldable iPhone in the works

Foldable smartphones seem to be the next in line to blow our minds away. We don't know how Apple is coping with all these issues and an official number of complaints or faulty devices hasn't been released just yet. Of course, it's hard to imagine that the South Korean tech giant will be the only one to deliver such a device.

Alongside the screen, a future foldable iPhone would also require a flexible circuit board and Apple may also assign the printing of such a circuit board to LG.

This report follows the rumours from July that suggested Apple's plan to apparently invest as much as $2.6 billion in support of LG's new OLED plant (a deal that hasn't been finalized as of yet). This might be due to the fact that Apple fears that some of its technical features might be leaked if Samsung takes the job.

LG recently started its first OLED production for phones at its E5 plant in Gumi, North Gyeongsang Province, as per a CNN News18 report. According to this rumor, the new iPhone may show up as early as 2020. Apple already has a head start in the segment, and the company believes they will be able to maintain an unassailable lead over Android in the segment for the next few years.

While the iPhone X is a celebration of the history of Apple's flagship smartphone series, its specs and features clearly look far into the future. This could also imply that an iPhone X-inspired design of the iPad Pro may launched soon. Apple could simply flawless what others invented before. LG reportedly completed its own foldable OLED panel prototype two to three years ago and has been upgrading the durability and the yield rate.

According to Apple, the phone will feature facial recognition technology for biometric security, along with an OLED display, innovative TrueDepth camera, all-glass front and back, and the A11 Bionic processor with a neural engine. Until then, we can only guess what it will be like.
