12.9-inch iPad Pro could be the first Apple tablet with OLED-display

OLED-displays are gradually becoming the new standard for high-end smartphones and tablets. Experts suggest that in the future they can displace traditional LCD screens. It is for this reason that many manufacturers are beginning to increase production of OLED panels, and in the middle of last year, Japan Display, Panasonic and Sony founded the company JOLED.

According to the resource ETNews, it JOLED will supply OLED-displays for future generations of iPad. Sources suggest that the first candidate to receive these screens is preparing to release a 12.9-inch tablet Apple, which is called iPad Pro.
JOLED originally expected to begin test production of 10-20 inch OLED-panels in the second half of 2016, and their mass production planned to build only the second half of 2017. But for the needs of the Apple company is ready to accelerate their plans and to start mass production of screens.
Currently JOLED is building a plant capable of supplying up to monthly 5.5 million OLED-panels. These volumes may well cover the needs of Apple.
According to reports, 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be similar to existing models of iPad - get slim aluminum body and thin frame around the display. At the gadget will be four speakers: two at the top and two at the bottom.
In addition, the large model will receive two interface connector. In addition to the standard Lightning port in the side of the device is provided another connector previously USB-C. The device will be equipped with an optional stylus.
