Apple working with partners on foldable iPhone

"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".

An analyst from Bank of America Merrill Lynch claimed that Apple is working to launch a foldable iPhone in 2020.

Apple is reportedly working on a foldable iPhone with Asian partners, Bank of America Merrill Lynch told CNBC.

"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. This would be Apple's second attempt at the partnership above with LG to find the screen that defines the iPhone of the future.

Madison, North Carolina-based Remington told investors on March 23 that it had negative operating cash flow of $7.4 million. The bankruptcy filing comes at a similar time in history, one that delayed the company's bankruptcy filings.

Last year, there were reports that Apple would invest in LG to speed up production. Lenovo and Samsung have demonstrated concept devices with foldable screens, and other companies have filed patents, but devices have yet to materialize.

Since the announcement, we've been getting several reports of the devices that Apple will be launching, and the latest one, from MacRumours, suggests that Pencil support is coming to a low-priced iPad.

The unnamed device could be related to a possible foldable iPhone. The plan is that a smartphone with a foldable screen will look like a normal device, but it can be folded out to offer a bigger screen for purposes such as watching videos and playing games. This type of display has a fundamental difference compared to the standard LCD panels since they are formed by independent pixels that make the screens more flexible.

There are several analysts who predicted the arrival of Samsung's first foldable smartphone this year, something that would have shaken the Cupertino giant. Furthermore, following the rumours and patents out there, it seems like foldable screens in the tech world could be the next form factor. That assumes that the phone would be presented after two new generations of iPhone: 2018 (of which already said there would be new iPhone X) and that of 2019.
