Trust deficit issues between Apple and Samsung

Apple reportedly partnering with LG for folding iPhone

Samsung is now the leader in providing OLED screens and it has been partnering with Apple for the provision of OLED screens. While the LG has been given the responsibility of making foldable OLED displays, LG Innotek and Apple have come on board to develop a flexible circuit board that would power these displays in the upcoming iPhones.

We're still awaiting the first OLED iPhone to ship with the iPhone X in less than a month, and new rumors are surfacing about a future iPhone with a foldable display. These foldable displays will be OLED screens but the element of flexibility would be the distinguishing factor this time.

Amid Samsung's near monopoly in mobile OLED production, Apple has been strengthening its partnership with LG Display, its long-time LCD partner.

Samsung has been making waves in news media outlets owing to continuous speculation around the launch of the foldable phone, Samsung Galaxy X.

Experts Reveal the Secret behind Durian Fruit's Unbearable Pungent Smell
Experts at the National Cancer Center Singapore studied a variety of durian fruit called Musang King and mapped its genome. These become more active as the durian fruit ripens, which is why it emits a particularly strong smell.

The Bell's sources have further said that Apple will be looking to launch this phone in 2020. LG reportedly completed its first such prototype two to three years ago and has been improving the durability and yield rate ever since.

Though Samsung is now dominating the mobile OLED market, it's yet to commercialize flexible OLED displays. Some rumours have also emerged that apple is considering to invest in the E6 plant to increase the production of OLED panels.

Earlier, there were reports that since Apple has a vested interested in flexible OLEDs, it will be investing $2.6B in supporting LGs new plant.

Looks like Apple might lose the race against Samsung when it comes to releasing a foldable flagship but at least the company will know that its secrets are kept safe for the time being.
