Images of iPad 5 display, digitizer leaked: Rumours
| by tech2 News Staff |
There’s finally something more to chew on the upcoming Apple tablet, iPad 5, or so we’d like to believe.
This time the news is from Macfixit Australia. The site is carrying photos of the replacement screens that reportedly belong to the yet unannounced Apple iPad 5. Guys at this site were informed by their supplier that this new iPad 5 Screen/Digitizer has the same display area as the iPad Retina version, and the edges of the frame are narrower akin to the iPad mini. This supposed iPad 5 display image has also given away that it houses 2 connectors instead of 1. The connectors themselves have undergone changes too – from FFC ((Flat Flexible Cable, like the iPad 2/3/4) to FPC (Flexible Printed Circuits, like the iPhone 4/5).
What do you think, eh?
If the display in the above image indeed belongs to the iPad 5, we must say that it has come at an opportune time. An earlier report on the iPad 5 had revealed that its production was to begin in July-August 2013 period.
A DigiTimes report that cited sources close to Taiwan-based supply chain companies had siad that the production of the upcoming fifth-generation iPad would begin in this period. The source, however, said that the "yield rates" for important parts of the 9.7-inch tablet, especially the touch panels, could be "a major concern for smooth production."
The sources said the iPad 5 will be thinner and lighter than the iPad 4 and is said to embody a slim bezel, quite like the iPad mini. The device's display is likely to be supplied by LG Display and Sharp, while the touch panel assembly will reportedly be carried out by TPK, a Taiwanese company. The ITO thin-film will be supplied by Nitto Denko and Teijin.
