Washington: After Samsung Apple is eyeing to join the smartphone market with its upcoming iWatch.
The details starts to emerge as we are just at the end of year that the iWatch will be coming with the LG’s flexible display.
Samsung is the first company to introduce flexible display to the smartphone with its flagship device Samsung Galaxy Round, soon after LG follows up with the LG G Flex.
Now Apple is eyeing to set a new trend to the smartwatches by introducing a flexible display. LG could be in line to provide Apple with flexible OLED screens for its elusive iWatch smartwatch.
Previous speculation had put Samsung in the display-based hotseat for the Apple watch, but it looks like Apple made a remarkable entrance.
“One expert” told the Korea Herald that “LG Display has been in talks over flexible light-emitting diode panels for quite a while and it looks like it will be sealing the deal with Apple.”
LG is ahead of the curve when it comes to flexible screens, what with its LG G Flex smartphone already on the way and looking like a hotter prospect than the roundly-panned Samsung Round.
That’s fueled in part by CEO Tim Cook telling investors that Apple sees dollar signs in “both current product categories and new ones”.
But we’re not expecting to see an Apple watch materialise any time soon – it’ll be 2014 before we see any more products from the Apple camp.
