Sintek has denied previous reports the company is trialling touchscreen displays for a future iMac, reports “9to5 Mac” (http://www.9to5mac.com/29313/sintek-denies-touchscreen-imac-claims?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+9To5Mac-MacAllDay+%289+to+5+Mac+-+Apple+Intelligence%29). Sintek Photronics spokesperson Barry Wu denied Digitimes’ claims contained in a report last week.
“DigiTimes” had said that Sintek Photronics has reportedly sent samples of projected capacitive touch panels to Apple to be incorporated in upcoming iMacs. Since current capacity for 20-inch and above projected capacitive touch panels is limited and the technology involved quite complex, Sintek, which is equipped with 5.3G generation production lines, has a good chance of becoming a supplier of the new models, the article said.
The next iMac is rumored to have a “good vertical and horizontal viewing angle, and its projected capacitive touch panel will adopt a one-glass solution, which integrates the touch sensor and cover glass, to reduce thickness and weight,” “DigiTimes” claimed.
