Slimmer iPad 3 With Low-Power Retina Display Coming Soon?

by on November 24th, 2011

A couple of days back, we reported a rumor suggesting that iPad 3 will be thicker than the current iPad 2, though not as thick as the original iPad. However, a new report by Forbes (via Mac Rumors) from analyst Peter Misek suggests that Apple has invested $500 million to $1 billion in new equipment which will allow Sharp to produce the iPad 3 displays using technology permitting a thinner and lower-power design, sporting a pixel density of 326 dots per inch.

Citing from the source:

“Also, we believe that Apple and Sharp together have a modified IGZO (indium, gallium, zinc) technology to achieve 330 dpi, which is sufficient for an HD display while not using IPS nor having to include dual-bar LED backlighting. In our view, this should lead to several design advantages, namely the device can be thinner, battery life should be longer, and the overall experience for users should be meaningfully improved.”

The analyst also claims that Apple has commissioned Sharp to manufacture displays for a sixth-generation iPhone which is rumored to see a mid-summer release.
