Since the New iPad was officially announced by Apple on March 7, there have been disputes as to whether or not Samsung is the sole provider of the retina display of the new tablet, which has a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels the higher in one tablet.
Now, according to The Korea Times, Samsung has put an end to speculation by confirming that it is the only supplier. The Vice President of Samsung, Kwon Oh-hyun said: “It’s a matter of allocation. No single supplier in the world. Samsung just providing screens to Apple, at first.”
Almost surely, LG is another Korean company that is the supply of screens for the new iPad (as rumored). However, for end users, the provider does not matter as long as the experience is the same.
As already said, Apple depends largely on Samsung components, although the two companies have patent wars in progress. A lot of things the new iPad is manufactured by Samsung, including the new processor A5X.
The new iPad comes in white and black, and was released by Apple on Friday March 16 for prices starting at $ 499 (16GB version only Wi-Fi).
