South Korea’s LG Chem is slated to exclusively give batteries for Apple’s iPhone 9 which is probably going to be launched next year, a Korean newspaper provided details on Friday.
LG Chem has put many billions of won in a dedicated line for the reason and will create “L-shaped” batteries for next year’s iPhone, the Korea Economic Daily reported citing an unnamed chemical industry source.
A spokesman for LG Chem said it doesn’t respond to request about client companies. Apple couldn’t be quickly gone after the remark.
LG Chem shares rose 3.7 percent in morning exchange to their most elevated amount since April 2016. They later pared increases to be up 0.5 percent.
LG Electronics this week launched a new cell phone, the Q8. A new entrant into the Q-Series of smartphones that are meant to offer premium elements at a competitive value, the LG Q8 is basically a little version of the LG V20 that was launched last year. Apart from a dual rear camera setup, it also sports a secondary always-on display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 820 SoC that’s coupled with 4GB of RAM.
The LG Q8 was launched in Italy, be that as it may, there are no details on availability or cost for now. The cell phone is also water and tidy safe, with an IP67 rating that allows immersion in up to 1.5 meters of water for up to 30 minutes. It also features 32-bit Quad DAC support and an infrared emitter.
