Foxconn rumored to be testing 55-inch Apple TVs
Apple’s manufacturing partner, Foxconn, was reported to have already started its initial testing of Apple TVs with display sizes ranging from 46 to 55 inches.
A source told FocusTaiwan that Hon Hai Precision Industry Co., aka Foxconn, has already started the testing phase of Apple’s HDTV sets sporting displays of up to 55-inch. The source also hinted that “Apple TV-related products” will make an appearance at the Consumer Electronics Show in January with a possible release at the end of 2013.
The question now is what company would be supplying Foxconn the LCD panels needed for the Apple TVs? Sharp is the most logical choice since Foxconn has invested a lot in the Japanese company. But according to the source, the possibility is not that high.
