Image of Alleged iPad 3 Casing Hints at Larger Battery, A6 to Remain Dual Core?

by on February 8th, 2012

A purported image of the iPad 3 casing has surfaced online via RepairLabs (via MacRumors), and the images show some minor changes compared to the iPad 2. Here’s what RepairLabs notes:

A. You can see here that the mounts for the logic board are very different, which means the logic board shape will be different allowing for . . . .

B. More battery. The width of where the logic board sits on the iPad 2 appears much larger than that of the iPad 3. We have long heard that the iPad 3 was going to provide longer battery life, and this back housing seems to support that.

C. The camera is different. It is hard to make a judgment just by looking at the casing, but what we can expect is a different camera on the iPad 3 than what we had on the 2.

D. LCD will be different than what we have had before. Whether or not it will be the super screen we have seen reported will have to wait. But the different mounting does mean that the LCD has been redesigned at the very least.

Over at The Verge, they claim their sources support what was noted by RepairLabs, and further add the next generation A6 will remain dual core:

We’re also told that the A6 CPU the iPad 3 is likely to sport will include a significantly more powerful GPU — no big surprise there. What is surprising, however, is that our sources say that the A6 will not be a quad-core chip, but will remain dual-core.

If Apple sticks to their current iPad timeline, expect further ‘leaks’ and rumours coming our way. Many expect the next version to sport a high resolution Retina Display to match the iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, and iPod touch 4th generation.
