Suppliers ready to deliver Retina Display to iPad 3

We all knew it was just a matter of time before Retina displays would become a reality for the Apple iPad, but unfortunately it did not come in time for the iPad 2 launch. It is now believed that at least two manufacturers are ready to bring Retina quality displays to the tablet market, and very likely to the iPad 3.

iPad 3 likely to get Retina display

According to sources, both Samsung and LG are ready to deliver high resolution display panels for use on smartphones and tablets with +300PPI (pixels per inch), which in theory can be used for Apple to deliver retina display for the next generation Apple iPad 3.

LG was the company that delivered the Retina display on the iPhone, and it is believed that they will be showcasing the new range of ultra-high resolution screens at the upcoming Society for Information Display (SID) which will be held in Los Angeles from 15th – 20th May. It is believed that they will be offering display panels ranging from 3.5 to 84-inches, including the 9.7-inch that is used on the Apple iPad.

But LG is not alone with a new high resolution display, as Samsung will also be attending the event, and is believed to reveal their new 10.1-inch WQXGA Pen Tile RGBW tablet display with a 2560 x 1600 resolution. According to Samsung this is the; “only display technology that operates at 40 per cent less power yet provides twice that of Full HD-viewing performance for consumers compared to legacy RGB stripe LCDs.” The lower power consumption could be  a winner for the Samsung screens as it would improve battery life on mobile devices.

It is believed that the new screen technology will find its way into devices by the end of this year.
