The next generation iPad, iPad 3 will look almost identical to its predecessor. The screen is allegedly sporting a 2048 X 1536 pixel resolution display provided by Samsung.
Interestingly, Samsung is about to spin off the company’s LCD display business into a new entity. a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, named Samsung Display Company.
Back to the main subject, the new tablet is said to be a little thicker with more tapered edges hiding the extra bulk, and sporting a larger camera lens probably an 8 Mega pixel.
A new photo has surfaced on the WeiPhone forums via iMore showing a system-on-a-chip nestled onto a prototype logic board, carrying a previously unheard of “A5X”. The A5X chip also includes a date code of “1146″, which would peg production at or around November 14th-20th of 2011.
This could mean that iPad 3 will have an updated variant of the Apple A5 chipset rather than an Apple A6 chipset as previously speculated or this is only a prototype was being tested.
The A5X chip is model #S5L8945X, that indicates a dual-core architecture rather than going to a quad-core architecture as previously speculated.
For iPhone 4 screen when first debuted with a Retina display moniker. To achieve this capability there were four factors to be taken into account; Display size, resolution, pixel density and the distance viewed, in the iPhone case it has 3.5″ display, 960 x 640 Pixels, at least 300 pixels per inch held at 12-15 inches away. But this is different form a 9.7-inch tablet display, for the iPad it normally held 15-18 inches away, needs more than 240 pixels per inch to get Retina condition. iPad 3 is said to have 9.7″ with 2048 x1536 resolution at 264ppi which is more than enough.
iPad 3 may include 4G LTE network support after all but its less likely.
