LG near deal to supply flexible OLED displays to Apple for its smartwatch
posted by Alan F. / Oct 29, 2013, 5:10 AM
Speculation has Apple testing out three different sized prototypes,1.4 inches, 1.5 inches and 1.6 inches. Besides LG and RiTDisplay, Samsung was another company allegedly approached by Apple to produce the display for the Apple iWatch. But Samsung apparently wanted to keep its production in-house to be used for its own smartwatch, the Samsung Galaxy Gear.
While some believe that the Apple iWatch could be launched before the end of the year, rumors of an issue with overheating are making some analysts push back their estimate as to when the device will launch to sometime in 2014. And with some owners of the new Apple iPhone models complaining that their handsets get too hot, that is a problem that cannot be tolerated on a watch that touches the skin. In other words, Apple will have to resolve this issue before iWatch is launched.

Very true, these guyz wait until something is invented then they patent any possible uses of the technology thus preventing the inventors from using it. Samsung played smart this time round and LG shall be in for a huge surprise.

Everyone does that, for that matter LG does that best. You think they're babies or something, they have a long record of stealing and bullying too. Stop looking out for giant multinationals, they really don't need it.

I understand it's a good business move for LG to sell their tech to Apple. But, if I was LG, I would come out with a smartwatch first, with my flexible screens....before I sale to Apple. Going off of pass events....I would say it's not to hard to believe Apple claiming they invented it and turning around and suing LG if they ever decided to make a watch with a curved screen.
