Samsung and LG Working on iPad 3 Retina Displays

by on July 18th, 2011

According to the Korea Times, Apple is coordinating with Samsung and LG to produce next-generation iPad 3 retina displays, according to their sources:

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

It is said Apple is already testing units at their labs in China, and that Samsung’s OLED technology isn’t being favoured due to its inability for a HD experience. Testing is supposed to be finished by Q3, and both Samsung and LG are working on Apple’s requirements for displays with better picture quality and density.

Another source mentioned pixel density will increase for the iPad 3:

Pixel density, a barometer for viewing quality, should be increased to over 280 pixels-per-inch (PPI) to meet Apple’s stiff requirement for screen viewing

The current iPad 2 has the same display as the original iPad, and rumours have stated the iPad 3 could come this winter.

I would welcome an iPad 3 with a Retina Display, but right now as it stands the distance at which I use my iPad 2 doesn’t make a difference as I can’t see pixels anyways. But Retina Displays, like that on the iPhone 4 are very, very droolworthy.
