LG Display to supply Sony's smartphones with flexible OLED panelsLG Display and Sony are already in close cooperation regarding Sony's OLED TVs and now they expand their partnership in the smartphones realm with LG Display providing flexible OLED panels to Sony for their smartphone lineup, according to a report from Busienss Korea. "We know that Sony is working with flexible OLEDs," said an official in the display familiar with LG Display's internal situations. That seems to be a logical step as Sony has a solid presence in the TV market and not so much in the smartphone one. Providing new and improved tech could help Sony maintain its sluggish smartphone business. Better displays is a step in this direction. On the other hand, LG Display can use this opportunity to expand its reach as it will begin mass production of flexible OLEDs at 15 000 sheets per month from the third quarter of 2018 and it cannot rely only on one or two big buyers such as Apple. An industry representative said that "Sony is already asking around to secure OLED engineers," and "Sony is expected to implant its success factors in the TV business in its smartphone business and develop products such as foldable phones."Source
