The Korea Times tells that Samsung and LG are currently testing and preparing mass production of high-resolution LCD panels for Apple’s iPad 3. The panel is said to feature a 2048x1536 pixel resolution.<br /><br /><h3>Retina Display in iPad 3</h3>LG is one of Apple’s main suppliers of IPS LCD panels in iPhones and iPads but recently Samsung has ramped up production of the PLS panel type with IPS characteristics. As a result, Apple is believed to have made Samsung a second LCD supplier for iPads.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/ipad2hand-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/ipad2hand-1.jpg" alt="The next iPad could feature a Retina Display" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>The next iPad could feature a Retina Display</i></p><br />Citing industry sources, The Korea Times has reported that Samsung and LG are currently testing HD screens with a 2048x1536 pixel resolution for the iPad 3. The screens use the 4:3 aspect ratio, which makes Apple able to scale Apps to fit the new higher resolution.<br /><br />The panel measures 9.7 inches in diagonal; same as the panel in iPad and iPad 2. A 2048x1536 pixel resolution in a 9.7-inch panel gives a pixel pitch close to that of the iPhone 4, making it a “Retina Display”.<br /><br />The LCD panel is made of low temperature polysilicon (or p-Si). With the p-Si method (or LTPS) TFTs (transistors) are made of polycristalline silicon enabling manufacturers to produce smaller pixels, to create slimmer panels and to mount drivers directly to the substrate.<br /><br />The information has not been confirmed but rumors about a HD panel in a coming iPad revision have been around for some time. Apple's next iPad is expected to launch either later this year or in March-April 2012.<br /><br />- <i>Source: The Korea Times</i>
