Apple wants to make foldable phones, wants LG and Samsung to create crease-free panels

After Samsung launched a new generation of folding screen phones Z Fold 4 and Z Flip 4, there has been news recently that Apple is preparing to launch a folding screen phone, and asked LG and Samsung to create a folding screen panel without crease problems. The Korean media The Elec reported that Apple asked LG and Samsung to provide a foldable OLED display panel with a mixed material design, which uses a mixed material of glass and plastic to ensure the flatness of the folding screen phone during use. At present, both LG and Samsung have produced a new ultra-thin foldable screen with a 2mm thickness design, which is thinner than the previously launched 5mm thickness design, making the screen easier to bend and fold. However, such designs are still in the development stage and have not yet reached the commercial stage, so they cannot meet Apple's use requirements for the time being. At present, Apple has not disclosed whether it has invested in the research and development of foldable products. But there are market rumors that Apple is working on different ways to improve the design of folding screen phones. In addition to the method mentioned this time, the use of composite material design to improve the screen crease problem also includes the design of "removing the polarizing layer to reduce the thickness of the screen panel and make the screen easier to fold".
