Google’s follow-up to last year’s critically lauded Pixel smartphone could come with a curved display, if plans for a tie–up with LG come to fruition.

The tech giant is said to have offered to invest $880 million to help LG produce flexible OLED displays used in curved screen handsets.

The idea, according to sources, is to help Google get hold of the component for its future smartphones.

If the investment pans out, it means this year’s Pixel 2 could come with a curved screen.

The device has been heavily trailed by Google staffers, looking to build hype for a mobile which will go up against the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8 and Apple’s iPhone 8.

The latter is expected to come with a curved display too, while the former is just the latest Samsung product to have a curved screen.

Google is not expected to launch the Pixel 2 until late 2017, meaning there could be ample time to ensure LG’s displays give its handsets the edge against the competition.
