These are thought to be for a new MacBook Air, which now comes with a 1,440 x 900 resolution screen. The new 12-inch Retina MacBook was seen as the Air's replacement, and Apple did kill the 11-inch model.

All this is speculation, of course, but we've heard previous rumors that Apple will be offering a new entry-level 13-inch MacBook, which could even potentially replace the MacBook Air.

The source claims that LG Display has been tasked with making more panels with a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution - aka Retina Displays. It's possible that Apple could keep the Air around, too, and reduce its price, but we doubt it given the dated components and ports. And we've also heard more recently on the grapevine that Apple is planning to debut a new, cheaper 13-inch MacBook Air. The current MacBook Pro has the same 2560 x 1600-pixel resolution.
