Meanwhile, one of the three companies that currently produces the Retina display panels for the iPad mini 2 is said to be bowing out. AUO is believed to be focusing on smartphones instead of tablets and will no longer be producing panels for the Apple slate. The other two current producers of displays for the tablet, LG and Sharp, are both expected to continue to make them. However, the new report speculates that much of Sharp's current production will be replaced by Samsung.
