An analyst has leaked more details about the iPad Mini 2 and Samsung Galaxy S4
The analyst in question is from RBC Capital Markets and says chipmakers are already working on the iPad Mini 2, while Samsung is set to include a bendable display on one of its 2013 launches, possible the Galaxy S4 in the second half of 2013.
'iPad Mini Gen-2: Apple's gen-2 iPad mini is getting pulled-in, and is likely to have several new suppliers, with TXN gaining content,' said analyst Doug Freedman.
TXN refers to Texas Instruments - one of the component suppliers used for parts on previous Apple projects.
Regarding the Samsung Galaxy S4, Freedman is predicting Samsung Display will be ready to ship an unbreakable plastic substrate screen by the second quarter, but the bendable screen won't be released until a couple of months after.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the most hotly tipped smartphone launch of 2013, with rumours suggesting it will be slimmer than the Galaxy S3 with a 5-inch screen and 1.2GHz dual-core CPU.
The iPad Mini 2 is said to feature a 7.9-inch screen with a top-notch ppi of 235.
