Samsung has reportedly created a team of around 200 employees to work exclusively on display technology 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.
