Rumors of Apple and television sets have been around for some time and don’t appear to be going anywhere. This time around we’ve got some possible specs for a television set, apparently to be called the “iTV,” according to DigiTimes.
The iTV will apparently be a 4K Ultra HD set which would boast a 2160p resolution, four times the amount of pixels that a 1080p HDTV has. Apple has supposedly been discussing mass-producing Ultra-HDTVs for “some time” but have not found a supplier to keep up with future demand. Most of the companies panel and screen makers in Apple’s chain are already too bogged down with production for Apple’s mobile devices.
Apple is “banking” on LG Displays to be able to handle the mass-production of UHDTVs before 2013 even ends. If true we may see an iTV around the holidays this year or early next year. These all sound eerily similar to rumors last year so it seems as though we just need to wait and see.
