iPad mini with a Retina display from Samsung?

A new report from the Wall Street Journal suggests that Apple's partnership with its greatest rivel, Samsung, is far from over.

Sources reportedly told the journal that Apple's next-generation iPad mini will most likely include a Retina display made by Samsung. Sources added that component makers were told by Apple to use high-resolution screens from Samsung, LG, and Sharp.

It's worth noting that these companies are long-time partners of Apple prior to waging war in the mobile market. It's probably safe to say that Apple is finding it hard to reduce its dependence on Samsung and LG, both of which happen to be key makers of Android phones these days.

Chips could be an entirely different thing, with Apple successfully moving its dependence of supply from Samsung to TSMC. Still, it's interesting to see how these dueling companies work together to come up with a marvelous product.

Apple initially had doubts in using Samsung's display technology, but later decided to give the go signal in order to "ensure adequate supply of screens." The said new iPad mini, sources added, will retain the same 7.9-inch size.
