Samsung has reportedly formed a dedicated team to build displays for Apple products

According to Bloomberg:

"The team at Samsung Display Co, which provides screens for iPads and MacBooks, helps develop products and is only allowed to share information about Apple's business within the group."

The two companies have endured a love hate relationship both inside and outside the courts. With Samsung's newly deployed Apple team, reportedly formed on April 1 of this year, the company plans to expand on assistance with exporting components, like the A9 chip, to one of its largest competitors.

Competition is heating up further within the mobile industry, and while Samsung's latest iteration of the Galaxy product family were met with positive reviews, the company is surely looking to bolster its component and display tech units.

  • “The two companies have endured a love hate relationship . . .” Now that is the understatement of the year.
  • I think it was only jobs who hated Samsung. Cook is more interested in business than personal vendettas. That said, it would be funny/sad if most of the iPhone/iPad was made by Samsung
  • Next up, the secret Apple design team who helped Samsung with the look of the Samsung S6 and Samsung's new S6 ear buds.
  • Aren't the divisions of Samsung that builds components and Samsung Mobile completely separate from each other? Samsung Display Company isn't "selling to the competitor," simply selling to a client. Samsung Mobile is also a client of Samsung Display Company.
