LG to Ship 6 Million Fifth-Gen iPad Displays in Q3 + the iPad mini with Retina on cue for an October Release
DigiTimes is reporting today that LG Display expects to ship 2.5-3 million 9.7-inch panels a month for the iPad in the third quarter of 2013 and that 1-2 million of the panels will be for Apple's fifth-generation iPad, with the rest for previous iPad models.
The fifth-generation iPad panels will remain at their standard 2048 by 1536 resolution yet come in lighter due to Apple's decision to drop one of the iPad's backlight tubes.
The DigiTimes sources also added that LG is reportedly making new headway in producing Retina panel technology for use in the next-generation iPad mini, and expects to ship about 2-3 million units a month in preparation for Apple's expected October release date.
