A recent report published by IDG news service claims that Apple is in talks with LG Electronics regarding production of 7.35-inch displays for a smaller iPad, dubbed as ‘iPad Mini’ as well as 4-inch displays for the iPhone 5. A meeting between the two companies is said to be scheduled for later this week with one of the main agendas being Apple’s plans to introduce a smaller tablet. Both will reportedly discuss displays for the next-generations of iOS devices as well. However, both LG and Apple have declined to comment on the report.
Citing from the source:
An “industry insider” who spoke to the Korea Times made reference to an “iPad mini” and the iPhone 5 after approaching the newspaper with details of a new deal between Apple and LG Display concerning displays for future iOS devices.
“Next year’s iPhone to feature a 4-inch display by LG Display, half an inch larger than the 3.5-inch display and retina display resolution will remain unchanged because LCD is currently being regarded as the right solution to offer value with better cost-cuts,” the unnamed executive reportedly told the Korea Times.
The iPad mini rumors have been around quite a while now but we haven’t seen any ‘leaked parts’ from the supply chain so far. By the way, do we really need an iPad Mini?
