In spite of disagreements over the years, legal tussles and injunctions galore, there’s still money to be made in cranking out iPhone handset displays.
According to Electronista and the United Daily News, Apple’s main assembly partner, Foxconn, is in talks to use Sharp technology to help build iPhone and iPad displays. Sharp is presently one of several companies already involved in producing displays for Apple products, other partner companies including LG Display and Japan Display.
Foxconn and Sharp have collaborated in the past; they entered into a strategic partnership in 2012, and opened an iPhone display plant in Chengdu, China. At one point Foxconn was expected to secure a 10 percent share of Sharp, albeit those plans fell through.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
