Apple is Unlikely to Use OLED for Its Rumored Television?

Apple has not asked LG to provide OLED panels for its upcoming television and is unlikely to use OLED in the near future, according to The Korea Times.

"It's true that Apple has keen interest in TV, allowing users to stream music, videos and TV shows via iTunes, though that needs some iPhone and iPad integration, however, Apple is still pessimistic about using OLED displays," said one source.

"Because Apple is worried over higher costs and technology-related issues linking to large-sized OLED displays, it is groundless that Apple has asked LG Display to supply its OLED screens for its upcoming televisions," added the source.

According to the article, Apple is not interested in OLED for its other devices either.

"Apple has no interest in using OLED screens on its popular devices. The upcoming iPad 3 will also adopt picture quality-enhanced LCD screens, while the next iPhone will follow suit. Three or four more years will be needed to see OLED-embedded digital devices from Apple," said a top-level executive from one of Apple's suppliers.

Interestingly, a report from earlier today predicted that Apple would launch a brand new product line this year. Perhaps a line of Apple Televisions?
