We once again have a resurface of rumors about the Apple HDTV. According to information from South Korea, Apple has begun to work with a company of the technology sector and electronics to produce a new television. Apparently the Cupertino giant has ordered several units of a 65-inch OLED panel to perform some tests. It is still unknown which company is behind these screens, as there are many able to make it.
According to rumors, the “iTV” is coming to the market sometime in the second half of the year and there are plans to produce up to 2 million units based on a 65 inch and 77 inch model. This new TV was originally to be released in 2013 , but for some reason Apple chose to delay plans, making the supplier to stop production. The supplier is still not known, but is likely to be one of the following: Samsung, LG, Hansol, S -LCD or Boe Hydis (Hyundai Display) .
“Around 2 million Apple‘s iTVs with 65- and 77-inch liquid crystal displays were expected to hit the market in the second half of this year. However, Apple employees visited this local company in October 2013 to delay the plans to next year,” said a source close to the matter on Saturday. “Following the visit, the display maker’s stock prices plunged.”
