Specifically calling out yesterday’s Bloomberg report that said Samsung was the sole supplier of panels for the iPad 3; Reuters said today that LG is indeed providing Retina Displays for the new iPad.

Bloomberg reported earlier that Samsung Electronics Co Ltd was the sole supplier for the new iPad, launched last week, after LG and Japan’s Sharp Corp failed to meet the U.S. company’s quality requirements, quoting an analyst from research firm iSuppli.

“LG is also in a panel supply deal with Samsung for the new iPad,” the source said.

The previous report cited quality issues with LG and Sharp’s products as the reason they were not able to provide displays to Apple. We are a few days away from finding out one way or the other via teardowns.
