Samsung Refutes Report and Says That It Will Still Sell LCD Panels to Apple

By Casey Chan on at

Yesterday, The Korea Times reported that Samsung would stop selling LCD panels to Apple. That report seems to be wrong. Samsung has come out to specifically say that, "Samsung Display has never tried to cut the supply for LCD panels to Apple."

Basically: if the LCD panel relationship has ended between Apple and Samsung (two companies who aren't exactly chummy with each other), the blood isn't on Samsung's hands. The statement CNET got from Samsung is pretty clear that it "never tried to cut the supply" to Apple. Apple hasn't replied to that statement yet, so we don't know if the two companies are still in business with each other. All we know is that Samsung was once the single largest supplier of LCD panels to Apple, and now it's supposedly not a part of the iPad Mini. [CNET]
