"We expect the iPhones this fall to be largely unchanged for the OLED versions although size changes have proved to be a catalyst in the past," analyst Wamsi Mohan wrote in a note to clients Friday. "Our checks also suggest that Apple is working with suppliers on a foldable phone (that potentially could double up as a tablet) for launch in 2020."
Last fall, a report said that Apple was working with LG Display on a foldable iPhone due to concerns that Samsung would steal its design. Samsung already has a foldable smartphone prototype which it recently showed off to select clients at CES.
LG Display has purportedly created a task force to develop a foldable OLED screen for the new iPhone model, while its parts-making sister firm LG Innotek has also setup a team dedicated to developing the rigid flexible printed circuit board, more widely called RFPCB.
