High-resolution displays for iPad 3 are finalized and being produced right now. Richard Shim, who is an analyst at DisplaySearch has told CNET that there are three suppliers for the iPad 3 displays, namely - Samsung, Sharp, and LGD.
“It’s happening–QXGA, 2048×1536. Panel production has started. There’s three suppliers,” Shim revealed to CNET.
“I would imagine there would be concerns about supply given the resolution of the display but you’ve got three different suppliers at this point. They should have enough to launch the product,” he added.
Outsourcing isn’t new for Apple, they do it for most of their products. So this news doesn’t come as a surprise.
Considering the resolution of the new displays, it can be termed as a next-gen leap as the current iPad 2 only has a resolution of 1024*768. The iPad 3 is rumoured to launch next year in February – March.
