AU Optronics Screen New Future After iPad mini

The screen of the future iPad Mini is occupying the last few days all the rumor mill surrounding the Apple world. As these latest rumors, it would incorporate acclaimed Retina display, a fact that would lead to higher production costs around 30%. It now appears that the company responsible for the screens of the first iPad mini, is also responsible for the second generation.

Everyone knows the supply problems that have hit the first mini tablet apple brand, drive massive demand caused the company responsible for supplying their screens, AU Optronics, will see overflowing. It seems that the Taiwanese company has remedied the situation, greatly improving its entire production structure, which directly affects the better availability of current and future Apple tablet. The big improvement has been through an increase in the effectiveness and implementation of technology-VA AH broad compared to IPS used by LG.

According to Digitimes, apart from the great structural improvements, the company is already working on panels of 7.9-inch iPad mini will integrate the future. These would have a native resolution of 2,048 × 1,536 pixels at 324 ppi density, doubling the resolution of the current that remains in a distant 1,024 × 768 pixels. Thus, Apple would be satisfying to those who expected a Retina display from the beginning, but as we all know, it is a common practice of the company.

Right now there are only two unknowns to clear: what is the date on which this future second generation iPad mini and if the rumored rise in production costs increased impact on final product price. For the first we can make some estimates, taking into account the improvement in production lines and alleged AUO is already working on the panels, we can estimate that the new iPad mini will be introduced at the earliest in the autumn, although this will also depend of the market situation. For the second unknown we have only to look at the trend of Apple in recent years, if we ignore the iPhone 5 clear. The company has always maintained the price of its mobile devices when the new has come on the market. Of course, we're also seeing this trend is beginning to break with the latest releases.

Hopefully that AUO enhancement affects directly to improved availability and reliability of future iPad mini.
