But the news that broke out about LG developing foldable displays of OMEs like Apple, Google and Microsoft has given the world another reason the accept the future – future of foldable smart devices. According to reports LG Display has partnered with Apple, Microsoft and Google to develop ‘out foldable displays’ for smartphones, which should hit mass production in 2018.
LG is not a new member in the foldable panel arena, nor is it the first new about LG’s endeavor. However, if experts are to be believed, Samsung still has a upper hand when it comes to designing foldable panels.
