The LG CEO, Young Soo Kwon, let slip to the Korea Times that the iPad 3 will feature a high-resolution Retina display similar to the iPhone 4. There have been many rumors surrounding this topic, and the Korea Times also reported earlier this week that the next-gen iPad would have a 2048 by 1536 display. There is speculation that Apple will produce a more powerful iPad “HD” for professional use, and it’s possible that two new models will be released side-by-side at different price points—a strategy that may be necessary if the Retina display is too expensive to include on the basic model.
He said more smartphone manufacturers will release new models employing LG’s “Retina Display’’ that has been used in iPhones and iPads.
Kwon’s remarks come following talks with Apple to supply picture quality-enhanced Retina Displays for the upcoming iPad 3.
