Apple Expected to Release an Ultra HD iTV; Mass Production could be an Issue

Yep, this rumor that won’t go away. Digitimes is now reporting that Apple is reportedly continuing to develop a TV rumored full-fledged, which is likely to feature Ultra HD (3840 by 2160), Siri, motion control functions and Internet connectivity. This information came courtesy of industry supply chain sources, according to the report.

We have reported that Apple to launch a full-fledged TV set in time Christmas based on information from a reliable source.

“Apple and Foxconn Electronics have been in discussions for quite some time in terms of the TV’s mass production schedule,” Julian Ho and  Alex Wolfgram report for Digitimes. “However, Apple has been considering where panel supply for the TV will come from, as Ultra HD TV panel makers, most of whom are based in Taiwan, are expected to be producing at nearly full capacity in 2013 in order to meet demand from China-based TV vendors.”

“Additionally, other panel makers in Apple’s supply chain that may have the ability to produce Ultra HD TV panels are expected to allocate most of their panel production to the company’s iPhone, iPad and iPad mini products instead,” Julian Ho and  Alex Wolfgram explain. “As ultra-mobile devices are expected to be popular in the market during 2013.”

It appears Apple is hoping LG Display will be able to mass produce Ultra HD TV panels by the second half of the year. In this case, Apple may try to release the TV by the end of 2013 but is more likely to do so towards the beginning of 2014, according to the report.
