Is Apple building its own HDTV? Your guess is as good as ours at this point, even though there have been several reports that have suggested the company is very interested in such an endeavor. Now, if this rumor is true, we have the clearest signal yet that Apple’s interested in building its team of professionals with experience in the industry.
According to OLED-A.org, Apple recently scooped up Dr. Jueng-Gil Lee from LG’s display team. 9to5Mac noticed that the expert’s credentials include work as a lead on researching OLED development for use in TVs, and that he also worked on LCD production with Samsung.
This could simply mean that Apple’s interested in enhancing displays in smartphones and computers further, but it’s compelling that the researcher has spent time on TV development in the past.
