There are rumors floating around that Apple is sourcing its display requirements for the iPad2 from Samsung. Its is the South Korean company’s Super PLS LCD panels that is reported to have found favor with Apple. Well, if this is true then is presents an interesting scenario. Both Apple and Samsung are baying for each others blood in both the smartphone and tablet segment though its Apple that clearly has an edge on both counts. But there is also no denying the fact that the behind the scenes scenario is vastly different. So much so that Apple forms one of the largest customers of Samsung.
About the display itself, the Super PLS LCD panels are believed to be superior to the IPS display that forms the display of the present generation iPads. Also, the Super PLS LCD that Samsung had unveiled last December is a lot cheaper to manufacture too and has better viewing angles besides offering 10 percent more brightness. The new Samsung liquid crystal displays also supports display resolutions of up to 1,280 x 768 pixels.
However, neither Samsung Mobile Display, Samsung’s subsidiary that provides the display nor Apple confirmed if this is true.
