While Apple normally likes to keep its secrets secret, industry murmurs usually point to the truth well before an official announcement is made. Just like how the web circulated rumours that the company would produce a tablet months before the iPad became a reality, we’re now fairly certain that an Apple-branded TV set will land in 2012.
Now new word from an inside source suggests that the size of the TV sets has been confirmed. The news suggests that Apple will offer three different sized TVs, starting at 33-inches and maxing out at 55-inches.
The three sets will offer a differing range of specs, from OLED to LG’s Super HD technology. The source, who claims to be involved in one of the Japanese companies manufacturing the units, has revealed that the sets will be powered by a new Apple processor – the same one that will appear in the iPad 3.
It will tie in with a new operating system that’ll mix elements of the current Apple TV and Siri. With Siri functionality, users will be able to control the set and search for any content using voice, or using any iDevice as a remote.
While this kind of news should be taken with a pinch of salt, it’s worth noting that the Apple TV rumours are, on the main, all playing the same tune. The general theory is that Apple will have its TV sets on sale in time for the Olympics in June.
