We have been hearing rumors about Apple’s TV for quite some time, and now according to a recent report by Digitimes, the device is expected to launch either by the end of 2013 or early next year.
The report also claims that the Apple TV will be an Ultra HD TV with a 4k resolution, this is not something we have heard previously, and the resolution will apparently be 3840 x 2160.
The sources said that Apple and Foxconn Electronics have been in discussions for quite some time in terms of the TV’s mass production schedule, but that 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, as ultra-mobile devices are expected to be popular in the market during 2013, the sources noted.
As soon as we get some more details on exactly when Apple will launch their new Apple TV we will let you guys know.Filed Under: Apple, Technology News, Top News
