Two suppliers of touch panels in Taiwan expect a good first half of 2019, with the couple saying they expects to deliver screens for the fifth generation iPad mini and a new 2019 iPad.
The fourth generation iPad mini
While rumors of a new iPad mini model are relatively sparse, smokers' influence has led to a report claiming General Interface Solutions and TPK Holding will take advantage of the updated tablet-size tablet production, where the two companies said they were the suppliers of touch solutions to the device.
According to sources of DigiTimes GIS is like delivering the touch system to over 40 percent of new iPad devices in 201
There have been rumors that Apple is planning to deliver the updated 7.9-inch iPad mini in the first half of 2019, although it is unclear whether there will be a major change in design to bring it into line with iPad Pro's makeover. A 2019 iPad is also supposedly scheduled for launch, with a November story suggesting it will be rebuilt with a larger 10-inch screen and a narrower frame.
In the fourth quarter of 2018, GIS reported record-high revenues of NT 51.68 billion. $ ($ 1.68 billion), where sources claim that 60 percent of its total sales stem from delivering touch solutions to iPads.
DigiTimes has a decent track record selection vendor's plans. The publications track record of Apple's specific product plans is described charitably as spotty. However, this report launches more towards the first class of report.
GIS is believed to see the total sales volume reduced by more than 50 percent in the first quarter of 2019 compared to the last quarter of 2018, with the subsequent dip expected to be due to seasonality. The report source's claim GIS will continue to hold its capacity utilization rate above 50 percent in the first quarter, as it is said to prepare to increase fingerprint reader module transfers in the display intended for use in the Samsung Galaxy S10 series.
