We are just heading towards December and iPad 3 rumors have already started to surface. In a recent report by CNet DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim has claimed that Apple has now started the production of ‘Retina Display’ screens for iPad 3. This high quality screen features 2048×1536 resolution, that is exactly double of iPad’s current resolution of 1024×768 found on first and second generation iPads.
“It’s happening–QXGA, 2048×1536. Panel production has started [for the next-generation iPad]. There’s three suppliers,” Richard Shim, an analyst at DisplaySearch, said in an interview today. Shim confirmed other reports that cite three companies, Samsung, Sharp, and LGD.
According to this report, Apple is sourcing this high resolution display from three manufacturers that include Samsung, Sharp, and LG Displays.
Retina Display on 3.5-inch iPhone 4 stunned the world when it first came out in June 2010, and if Apple manages to release an iPad with Retina Display then it will send the competition in shock (the competition that is already playing catch up with the original iPad).
