Apple And LG Are Reportedly Working On A Foldable OLED Display For Future Products
Apple and LG Display are reportedly working together on a new foldable OLED display with a glass screen that would be used for future iPad and MacBook Products, according to a new report from The Elec.
While LG Display is already set to build 17-inch foldable 4K OLED displays for HP as soon as this year, the device will be just 11 inches in size when closed. It’s thought that something similar could be created for Apple.
Where things will change for future iPad and MacBook uses will be the use of an “ultra-thin glass as the cover window instead of polyimide.”
That’s something that should allow for a more rigid construction that would also help deal with the issue of creasing that has often been a problem that has been cited as a reason foldables might not be popular.
Apple would likely want to ensure that it can produce the best possible display if and when it does enter the world of foldable devices and it now appears it might have found its manufacturing partner.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of Apple wanting to produce a foldable device like this. Mark Gurman of Bloomberg has also pointed to a future 20-inch foldable device that could be in the works, too.
