Apple recently launched its new larger HomePod 2, according to a recent report, there is another Apple HomePod in the works with a built-in 7-inch display.
The news of this new HomePod with a built-in display comes from respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has revealed that the device will come in 2024. He writes in his Twitter posts:
Tianma is set to debut in Apple’s supply chain, becoming a new beneficiary of Apple’s revamped smart home strategy.
I predict that Apple will unveil a redesigned HomePod featuring a 7-inch panel in 1H24, with Tianma as the exclusive panel supplier.
The HomePod, which equips a panel, could enable tighter integration with Apple’s other hardware products, marking a significant shift in the company’s smart home strategy.
Tianma’s long-term prospects in Apple’s supply chain look promising. It’s poised to follow the growth path of BYD Electronics or BOE by starting with low-end products and gradually increasing its shipment allocation, and obtaining higher-end products through technology capacity upgrades. Tianma’s next orders from Apple may be iPad panels if the shipment goes well.Ming-Chi Kuo
