Samsung denies severing Apple ties

Apple Samsung Display Supplier

A report issued on Monday made waves, claiming that Samsung (005930) would soon sever ties with Apple (AAPL) and stop supplying the Cupertino, California-based company with LCD display panels. Displays are among a number of components Samsung sells to Apple for its various consumer electronics products, and the ongoing tensions between the two over patents has resulted in a great deal of speculation that the fray will impact the tech giants’ relationship elsewhere. In a statement made to CNET, however, Samsung has confirmed that this latest rumor is false. “Samsung Display has never tried to cut the supply for LCD panels to Apple,” a Samsung spokesman said.
