    I'm pretty sure it's confirmed that it is samsung. The team that disassembled the new MBA confirmed it I think.

    It suspiciously does not look like a Samsung.

    It's not unusual for Apple to use different suppliers. Toshiba and Samsung were used last year. There is no reason why they wouldn't be used again.
