The rumored Television would be similar to the Bose VideoWave integrated home entertainment system, against which it’s being benchmarked, reports Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry.
“ HDTV is directionally similar to Bose VideoWave TV, in terms of simplicity, reducing clutter, image quality and sound quality,” Chowdhry theorized. He adds that Apple will take it a few steps beyond to eliminate any cumbersome aspects.
The VideoWave requires three cables, but Chowdry says an Apple HDTV would likely require just one.
“Bose VideoWave HDTV is 6 inches thick and has 16 speakers,” Chowdhry writes. “Apple HDTV will be one third of that thickness and will also have 16 speakers -– these 16 built-in speakers give a complete surround sound experience, without the need for any external speakers.”
The VideoWave costs $5,200 and features a 46″, Apple will reportedly produce three models of its television across a range of price-points.
Other features mentioned are iTunes and iCloud support.
