Sharp and Samsung rumored to be the two display panel suppliers for the upcoming Apple iPad Pro
The report also suggests that Sharp, a traditional display panel supplier for Apple iPhones and iPads, will be the primary display supplier for the upcoming productivity-centered iPad. In fact, the report actually claims that, at launch, Sharp could be the sole supplier. Allegedly, Samsung will fill in the role of a secondary supplier, as the company is rumored to start manufacturing iPad Pro panels in September. Furthermore, the report claims that Apple considered including LG-manufactured display panels in some iPad Pro units, but that these plans were abandoned due to low yields.
A discovery made in the iOS 9 source code has previously revealed that the Apple iPad Pro is likely to come with a 12.9-inch display running a resolution of 2,048 by 2,732 pixels at a PPI of 264.
As with all rumors, especially iPad Pro rumors, make sure to digest this info with a pinch of salt.
