Google has reportedly offered to invest almost $900 million in LG Display Co. to help the South Korean electronics firm increase production of its organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens for smartphones.
Google has made the $880 million offer to secure a steady stream of screens for its upcoming Pixel smartphone, the Electronics Times reports.
LG has declined to comment while Google could not be reached at the time of publication.
LG could be Google's only option if the company is set on delivering a curved OLED screen. Samsung may not be able to supply Google, given recent speculation that it has inked a deal with Apple to supply curved screens for a new iPhone.
Rival manufacturer Japan Display Inc. has also stated that it will be unable to produce curved OLED screens until at least next year.
