Analyst Claims Apple Launching 55- and 65-Inch 4K Televisions Late Next Year

Apple will launch 55- and 65-inch 4K ultra-high definition televisions late next year, if an analyst report from Masahiko Ishino at Advanced Research Japan is to be believed.

Apple TV and Television
Bloomberg shared the report, claiming the displays will have a frameless design with suppliers including LG for display panels, Samsung for graphical processing, and Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 for glass covers with units priced from $1,500 to $2,500. Foxconn would be used for final assembly for initial delivery in the fourth quarter of 2014, according to the analyst.

A number of companies released 4K ultra-high definition displays earlier this year, but they remain prohibitively expensive for the average consumer. We have no indication of reliability for predictions by Masahiko Ishino or Advanced Research Japan.

Earlier this year, an extremely sketchy report from Taiwan's Economic Daily News claimed Corning, Foxconn, G-Tech Optoelectronics and display maker Innolux were working with Apple on a new television product.

No way

$1,500 for a 55" 4k... Not gonna happen.

I'm just hoping the upgraded 27" displays with 4k are under $1500

$1500 for 60" that actually seems cheap.
Small typo, they forgot a zero. - $15,000 and $25,000.

We have been hearing this for years, I am never expecting this and to be honest I'm just really not interested in any future apple products after how amateur and ugly iOS7 was. I used to be a huge fan.

Why hang your kids school work on the fridge when apple has amateur kindergarden looking **** to show on your tv now!
