LG and AU Optronics Once Again Named as Display Suppliers for 'iPad Mini' Coming in October

Bloomberg reports that LG Display and AU Optronics will serve as suppliers for the 7.85-inch display destined for Apple's forthcoming "iPad mini". The publication specifically claims that the device will be released in October.
The orders will mark the first time AUO, a maker of panels for Appleā€™s MacBooks and Sony Corp. TVs, is supplying screens for Apple handheld devices.

Carolyn Wu, a spokeswoman for Apple, declined to comment. Sharp Corp. may make panels for the device in the future and will not be an initial supplier, three of the people said.
The report also cites TPK and Foxconn subsidiary Yeh Chang Technology as handling the lamination coating for the display.


Interestingly, claims of LG and AU Optronics serving as suppliers for the iPad mini display can be traced all the way back to October 2011, when Taiwan's United Daily News claimed that the two companies had been sending samples to Apple. The Wall Street Journal reiterated the claim in February of this year.

Wow. The product has not even been released for sale & you already know the issue?!?!? :confused:


LG is known to have this kind of problem. Although it's unfair to make that kind of call without having mini products to be released yet, still, the likelihood of happening is somewhat high.
