The US tech giant also aims at vanishing the crease and small crumples that appear on the foldable display. Therefore, Apple wants Samsung to develop a foldable display for iPhone with the help of LG brand manufacturers.

Reportedly, the first Apple foldable iPhone will equip a hybrid OLED panel in order to offer a creaseless display. And, Samsung and LG are developing an ultra-thin glass substrate for use in this hybrid OLED panel, which would be 2mm thin, rather than the typical 5mm.

Furthermore, since the Apple foldable iPhone/Ipad display is under development and not at a stage for commercialization, the display technology may not reach Apple’s supply chain for a few years.
