Is This iPad 3's Retina Display Panel? [Photos]
And things are getting hotter regarding iPad 3, folks over iLab Factory are claiming that they have pictures of iPad 3′s rumored Retina Display. At this point it’s pretty much sure that Apple would introduce their third gen tabvlet with a Retina Display and up to 3x faster graphics. Apparently there’s no change in the screen size, it’s still 9.7 inches as it is for currently available iPad 2. But there are some noticeable changes the circuitry of purported iPad 3 Retina Display panel, iPad 3′s Retina display panel has three connecting cable points which is one more than iPad 2′s connecting cable points.
This LCD panel has been suggested that the flat cable that connects the base to three of the same 9.7 inches LCD iPad2, LCD and this increases the more a iPad2, and high-resolution XQGA seen (2048 × 1536 pixels).
A similar picture was leaked almost a month ago which had similar LCD circuitry. It is highly speculated that iPad 3 may carry a 2560×1600 resolution retina display, which means that it would require additional data bandwidth so a third connection point is justifiable. A recent report from Digitimes and several other sources claimed that Apple might use IGZO (indium gallium zinc) display panel technology from Sharp instead of IPC display panel technology in iPad 3. This leaked purported iPad 3 Retina is also manufactured by Sharp so we can say that Apple may finally introduced their much waited IGZO (indium gallium zinc) display panels by Sharp in iPad 3.
Earlier today AllThingsD reported that Apple is planning to hold their Special iPad 3 launch event in the first week of March, Jim Dalrymple of The Loop also condoned this report in his “usual” short confirmation by saying “Yep”. But we still don’t have an exact launch date, if it’s March 7th then it’s highly likely that Apple would start shipping around March 15th.
What you can expect from iPad 3:
Many rumors and reports have confirmed that iPad 3 would carry a 2048×1536 Retina Display. We also saw a leaked picture of purported iPad 3 Retina Display couple of weeks ago. Up to 3x faster graphics and a high speed dual core processor. In my opinion Apple would introduce a quad-core processor, I’ve mentioned it before and I’m saying it now it’s just going to be a faster DUAL-CORE processor. Overall form factor would be similar to iPad 2 and of course better front facing and rear cameras.
We will keep you updated on this, stay tuned!
