AU Optronics Working On Retina Display For The Next iPad mini?

SlashGear reports on a publication from Chinese website DoNews, which claims that AU Optronics is working on a Retina-resolution display for the next iPad mini that is said to be released next year.

There has been much discussion on how quickly Apple will move to a Retina display in the smaller iPad, and today’s report suggests the company is not planning to wait several generations as it did with other devices. Another report from MENAFN notes that AU Optronics will adopt IGZO and Gate IC on array technologies to reach the Retina-level resolution in iPad mini’s thin form factor. MENAFN also said:

“Speaking of the progress of the development of iPad Mini, AUO claimed that it had solved the problem of yield and there would be no light leak as existed before. The company would ship the products in large scale in the fourth quarter”.

However, there is confusion over the density of pixels on these displays in both reports, which claim that Retina-resolution iPad mini’s display would have a pixel density of 497 ppi (pixels per inch), whereas it would actually carry the same 326 ppi seen on the iPhone 5.
