We’ve heard rumors that the new iPad 3 will have Retina Display feature, now the news is Apple has started testing Retina Displays from Samsung and LG for their upcoming iPad 3, according to Korea Times.
“Apple’s upcoming iPad 3 will feature an improved display to support quad extended graphics (QXGA), a display resolution of 2048×1536 pixels with a 4:3 aspect ratio to provide full high definition (HD) viewing experience,” said a source close to the talks.
“Apple has traditionally preferred to use the same providers of the same parts for the same device, even as they evolve to different versions. I don’t see any fundamental change to that approach.”
Apple looking to order advanced HD screens for their next generation of its enormously popular tablet computers.
Quality testing phase has been started for the both Samsung and LG’s LCDs at the Apple laboratories in China, only time will tell which one fits in the final iPad 3 version but its for sure one with the better picture quality will be preferred by Apple. This testing process is expected to be completed by the third quarter. Earlier we have also seen the prototype iPad 3 with 3D screen running at the Display Taiwan 2011. So we can hope for HD screen, or may be a 3D…..
Both Samsung and LG are the two companies having expertise in highly advanced LCD screens and they are capable of producing high resolution QXGA screens up to 9.7 inches, which I think suites Apple the most. Also Apple wants to increase the pixel density of the display panels to over 280 pixels-per-inch….
