Apple will launch 55- and 65-inch 4K ultra-high definition televisions late
next year, if an analyst report from Masahiko Ishino at Advanced Research
Japan is to be believed.
_Bloomberg_ shared the report, claiming the displays will have a frameless
design with suppliers including LG for display panels, Samsung for graphical
processing, and Corning's Gorilla Glass 3 for glass covers with units priced
from $1,500 to $2,500. Foxconn would be used for final assembly for initial
delivery in the fourth quarter of 2014, according to the analyst.
A number of companies released 4K ultra-high definition displays earlier this
year, but they remain prohibitively expensive for the average consumer. We
have no indication of reliability for predictions by Masahiko Ishino or
Advanced Research Japan.
Earlier this year, an extremely sketchy report from Taiwan's _Economic Daily
News_ claimed Corning, Foxconn, G-Tech Optoelectronics and display maker
Innolux were working with Apple on a new television product.
