12.9” almost UHD resolution iPad Pro Retina displays already in production by “1st tier supplier in Korea”

It’s no secret today that Apple is coming out with 12.9” iPad Pro early next year. There were too many rumors from too many sources since we first told you about the maxi iPad back in May, for it to be just a vaporware.

Now Korea Times reports that Apple’s first tier supplier in Korea [ed. LG, most likely] has already started the production of 12.9” Retina displays for iPad Pro for early 2014 release.

According to KT source:

“The 12.9-inch iPad will have improved picture quality. As the Apple partner intends to boost its lineup for displays that have almost ultra high-definition (UHD) quality, the upcoming iPad will provide very clear quality similar to that of UHD.”

It is interesting that most of the big tablet launches haven’t crossed the 11” threshold so far. 2014, though, is shaping up to be the year of big slate with Apple, Samsung and LG getting ready to release devices with 12” and bigger displays.

I guess next year would be even less fun than 2013 for most laptop OEMs.
