Apple Flexible Display Job Posting

A recent job posting suggests that Apple (AAPL) is interested in incorporating new display technology in its future products. The company is looking for a display specialist to improve the overall optical performance of its devices and “lead the investigation on emerging display technologies such as high optical efficiency LCD, AMOLED and flexible display.” The employee will also be required to “analyze the trade-offs between design, process, optical performance, and implementation feasibility.” An earlier rumor suggested that Apple was interested in using a curved glass display in its iWatch device. A number of rival companies, such as Samsung (005930) and LG (066570), have been experimenting with flexible touch screens in recent years. Filings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office have also shown Apple’s interest in flexible display technologies over the past few years.
