Οι φήμες για το iPhone Flip, τους αναδιπλούμενους Mac και τα iPad μόλις πήραν το φως της δημοσιότητας καθώς η Samsung Display (ο κύριος συνεργάτης της Apple για οθόνες για τις Appliances της) έκανε ένα μεγάλο βήμα προετοιμάζοντας να βοηθήσει στην κατασκευή τους, ανά The Elect and its industrial sources.
Samsung Display has apparently just finished restructuring parts of the business to meet Apple's needs, with Samsung Display's Apple Business Team now trained to develop foldable displays designed specifically for its larger customers' devices, rather than selling them. off the shelf panel .

Helping his opponents flourish
It's always strange to think that while Samsung's mobile division and Apple are long-term rivals, other parts of Samsung's operation treat Apple and other competitors as customers.

Whether Apple's first foldable goes up against foldable phones like the OnePlus Open or Motorola Razr Plus, or foldable laptops like the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold or the HP Specter Fold, Apple has a good chance of beating them completely, or at least in some key areas. . And as the world's leading foldable display maker, whatever its hardware, Samsung wins too.
