Sources stated that AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics will send samples of their 13.3″ and 15.4″ panels to Apple in order to certify the parts for certification. Shipments will officially commence in the second or third quarter of this year. Backlight manufacturers Coretronic and Kenmos Technology are also slated to send samples of their products to Apple around this time frame.
Although the companies refused to comment at this time, sources have stated that AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics will enter volume production for LED-based LCD modules in the second and third quarters while Coretronics’ LED-based backlight units will be applied to the panels made by AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics.
No details have arisen as to when customers could begin to expect an LED-backlit system from Apple.
