LG Poised To Ship Around 3 Million iPad Panels A Month In 3Q13; Expects No 2014 Delay For Retina iPad mini

Digitimes’ Julian Ho and Alex Wolfgram report that LG Display expects to ship 2.5-3 million 9.7-inch panels a month for the iPad in the third quarter of 2013, according to industry sources, who say that some 1-2 million of the panels will be for Apple’s fifth-generation iPad, with the rest for previous iPad models.

Ho and Wolfgram’s sources say the panels for the fifth-generation unit are expected to have a 2048 by 1536 resolution, and that the device will be lighter and thinner as well as having only one light tube in its backlight instead of two.

They also say that LG is reportedly making new headway in producing Retina panel technology for use in the next-generation iPad mini, and expects to ship about 2-3 million units a month in preparation for Apple’s expected October release date.
