Production of Apple iPad 5 starting in July or August this year

Apple's next generation of iPad 4 could be announced in Q3

We already reported that the upcoming Apple iPad 5 will be unveiled during a special event named ‘Original Passion, New Ideas’, on June 29 this year. But a source claims that the tablet won’t be launched in that event. The production of the upcoming Apple iPad 5 will reportedly be starting from July or August this year. So, it is expected that it will likely be unveiled in the second half of Q3 only.

The display of the device could be supplied by LG Display and Sharp. Touch panel assembly will be performed by TPK, and Nitto Denko and Teijin will supply the ITO (Indium Tin Oxide) thin film of the Apple iPad 5.

Coming to the specs of the iPad 5, we already reported that a leaked picture showing a prototype back piece for the iPad 5 with a 9.7-inch display was spotted online and revealed that the image seems to be a prototype for an LTE version of the upcoming iPad 5. The iPad 5 will be thinner and lighter than the existing Apple iPad 4 and it will sport a slim bezel design. The screen resolution of the device will likely be 2048×1536 pixels with a quad-core Processor and 2GB of RAM.

You can note that the upcoming smartphone, the Apple iPhone 5S is already expected to be unveiled at that Special Event. We’ll keep you posted.
