Apple iWatch Will Be Manufactured By LG?


LG is rumored to be the one manufacturing the display of the Apple SmartWatch/iWatch.

With all the rumors circulating all over the net about the upcoming launch of the Apple SmartWatch/iWatch, the consumers are very much eager to hear more details about the device and the features it comes with. The latest rumor came from a report posted on a Korean website which confirmed that LG is said to manufacture the overall display of this highly innovative watch.

Despite the post, this report is not confirmed by Apple and the company did not comment any further about this. As a matter of fact, they have not released any official statement yet as to when the new watch is set to be released or if they are currently in the process of developing this new watch.

Apple Inc.

Apple Inc. is the company behind the Apple SmartWatch/iWatch, as well as the iPhone, iPad, iPod, MacBook, and several other electronic devices. Apple is a US-based corporation with headquarters located in Cupertino, California. The company focuses on designing, developing, as well as selling consumer electronics, software, computers, mobile devices and many more.

It is best known for its Mac line of computers. Also, people fall in line for its iPod media players, the iPad tablets, and the iPhone smartphones. This is why it’s expected that they’ll enjoy the same popularity for the upcoming Apple SmartWatch/iWatch. If the trend is to be followed, it will look amazing and will be packed with a lot of features.

LG Telecom

LG stands for Lucky Goldstar, which is a South Korean based company that is said to be the fourth largest electronics company all over South Korea. The headquarters of LG is located in Seoul, South Korea at the LG Twin Tower building.

The company produces and sells electronic products, chemicals, as well as various telecom products. Their subsidiaries are LG Electronics, LG Display, LG Chem, Zenith, as well as the LG Telecom which is the company said to be commissioned by Apple to manufacture the Apple SmartWatch/iWatch. The company operates in more than 80 countries worldwide and if rumors are true, their partnership with Apple can help to make the company to grow even bigger.

Materials Used

Further reports stated that the materials that will be used for the new Apple SmartWatch/iWatch are the same materials that were used for LG’s Flex display that matches up to rumors that the Apple iWatch will come with some curved form factor in order to achieve a better fit for the wrist. The iWatch is also said to come with a 1.52” display screen, according to rumors.

Taken Off

For some unknown reasons, the said report has already been taken off from the Korean website that originally published it. But if you want to have a glimpse of a copy of such report, simply check out some of the tech websites that published the report. With the removal of the report and without any confirmation from Apple Inc, it is still difficult to confirm if LG will indeed be manufacturing one of Apple’s most anticipated products for 2014, the Apple SmartWatch/iWatch.
