Samsung to produce Retina display panels for the Apple iPad mini 2?
The strangest love affair in history will get even more entangled than thought this year. Yes, we already told you that Samsung would be manufacturing some of Apple's A8 chips along with TSMC. But according to a new report, the two rivals have also agreed to have Samsung produce some of the Retina displays for the Apple iPad mini 2. These are the same two firms that love to duke it out in the courtroom. In fact, the second Apple-Samsung epic patent trial is scheduled to begin at the end of this month.

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.
