Apple Unveils "The New iPad" With A5X Processor, 4G LTE, Retina Display, 1GB RAM And Better Cameras [Images]
Apple has just unveiled their third generation of iPad tablets at Yerba Buena Center of Arts in San Francisco. One year of rumors and reports and finally we have it here. As expected The New iPad 3 has a 2048×1536 Retina display which looks gorgeous. The New iPad’s high resolution display wasn’t much of a surprise like it was in the case of iPhone 4 back in 2010 because it was leaked almost a month ago. You’ve got to see this in your hands folks, it’s crystal clear like iPhone 4/4S Retina display.
As rumored and reported Apple iPad 3 is carrying a crystal clear high resolution 2048 x1536 Retina display.
Well we’ve been swirling between Quad-Core A6 and a faster Quad-core A5X processor from past one month or so. But just as expected iPad 3 carries a faster A5X processor which was also leaked couple of weeks ago. We also commented on BGR’s photos which were leaked earlier in February that it is highly likely that Apple would introduce a A5X processor.
Here’s what we said:
What these pictures show is a minor bump in processor, as the report says:
- A4 model was S5L8930X
- A5 model is S5L8940X
- Alleged A6 model is S5L8945X
A jump from 8940 to 8945 represents a minor bump in processing speed so there is possibility that Apple may introduce a 1.2 or 1.4 GHz processor in next-gen iPad.
With faster dual core processor iPad 3 would give you up to 3x faster graphics than iPad 2. This huge jump in graphics makes iPad 3 the fastest mobile gaming platform.
Just as we reported yesterday, iPad 3 carries double the RAM than iPad 2. iPad 3 comes with 1GB of RAM which will make it more faster and snappier than ever before.
This is something dazzling, Apple has introduced a 5 megapixel rear camera in iPad 3 which is also based on Apple’s latest 5 lens technology which was first introduced in iPhone 4S in October last year. iPad 3 is capable of recording videos in full 1080p, the front camera is also bumped to 1.3 megapixels for better FaceTime experience with your friends and family.
The New iPad 3 is carrying all new 4G LTE technology which is definitely going to awesome for people who are data savvy.
iPad 3 is 3G ready in rest of the world, where ever there’s no 4G network it will automatically fall back to 3G network an so on.
Same ten hour battery life folks, just as we expected when first rear shel was leaked almost two months ago which indicated larger battery. iPad 3 would still give you 9 hours of battery life on 4G LTE which is remarkable in my opinion.
Apple has maintained their standard price tag for The New iPad 3. The WiFi version of iPad 3 would be available on following prices:
- iPad 3 WiFi 16Gb $499

- iPad 3 WiFi 64Gb $699
