Jony Ive says Apple's iPhone X design is only the beginning

Jony Ive says Apple's iPhone X design is only the beginning

Now rumours have surfaced claiming that Apple is working with Apple for a foldable iPhone.

Apple pushed aside the traditional 3D Touch Home button which unlocked smartphones through fingerprint scans and made a decision to opt for a more futuristic face scanning software.

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.

According to The Bell (via The Investor), LG has created a "task force" to help Apple develop the flexible OLED display.

It's also been reported that LG's parts division has a similar team working on internal components for the device. At the moment, Samsung now supplies the OLED panels for Apple's new iPhone X. The latter has been busy making a bendable smartphone of its own for the past few years, recently confirming that it was looking to launch the device next year. The first batch of the production will be shipped to LG Electronics and some Chinese handset makers, while the production for iPhone is expected to start from as early as 2019 when its new plant, called E6, is completed in Paju, Gyeonggi Province.

Soccer president Sunil Gulati is also likely on the hot seat, but like Arena, he does not feel major changes are needed. When soccer holds its world's fair in Russian Federation next June, the American pavilion will be glaringly absent.

According to Mr Kuo, the reasoning behind Apple to add the TrueDepth camera system to the iPad Pro lineup would be to offer the users an experience that would be consistent with the iPhone X.

Some media reports claim that Apple is moving away from Samsung due to the concern of possible leaks from the display wing of Samsung on future plans about iPhones.

Critics have pointed out plateauing iPhone sales in recent quarters, but Apple Inc.

Samsung is now the sole manufacturer of the OLED displays, NAND flash and DRAM chip in quantities required by Apple for its iPhones.

However, Apple and LG's partnership may not be seeing fruit until 2020, giving Samsung quite a large window to go one-up on its rival. It wouldn't be the first time we saw Apple take something someone else invented and flawless it to an extent where we actually think that it is an innovation.
