iPad 3 To Sport An 8 Megapixel Camera & Slightly More Tapered Edge [PHOTOS]

by on February 19th, 2012

While we have been frequently hearing rumors regarding iPad 3′s speculated high resolution Retina Display, a new report by NextMedia (via MacRumors) has revealed some interesting photos and information regarding iPad 3′s minor design changes and upgraded back camera. Through its “special channels”, the source has acquired an overview shot of the new iPad 3 back enclosure and also a comparison shot between the original iPad, the iPad 2 and the next-generation iPad.

Quoting via MacRumors:

The iPad 3 enclosure seems to have a more gradual taper to the edges than the iPad 2. The taper is seen better on the top overview photograph. As a result of this longer taper, the iPad 3′s camera rests on the taper itself. We saw this before but due to the dark lighting of that image, the taper seemed more exaggerated. 

The absolute positioning of the camera doesn’t seem that far off from the iPad 2, but the lens does appear larger. According to NextMedia, the new iPad 3 camera will see a significant upgrade to 8 megapixels. The current iPad 2 back camera is 1 megapixel in resolution. The site also summarizes many of the other expectations for the iPad 3, such as an improved display, quad-core CPU, and a March 7th announcement date. 

The source also notes that the images here seem to match up to other parts that have been floating around China so this could actually be the real deal!
