Photo might reveal Apple iPad 3's Retina display
posted by Alan F. / Dec 30, 2011, 4:44 PM
The newer display has what looks like 3 ribbon cables attached to it as opposed to only 2 on the current display. The extra cable would be used to provide the bandwidth that would be required to give the panel a Retina display, The other two cables are used for power and data transfer.
We recently reported that rumors have suggested that the screen on the Apple iPad will be an IGZO panel, produced by Sharp, which has the capabilities of producing resolution of 330 dots per inch. Earlier reports noted that Apple had invested some of its ample pile of cash into the facility that Sharp will be using to build the displays. The Apple iPad 3 is expected to launch early next year with a quad-core A6 processor running the show. The company recently denied a report that its third-gen tablet would launch next month.

I think a resolution of more than 300 dots per inch or something like that. Maybe 315-ish.

I just just checked the resulution for 3 devices that have HD, screen (Nexus, Nitro, and Rezound) They all have ppi over 315, so i guess they are considered Retina displays, but none ever mentions that. Or is it just because apple can only say that on its devices.

It's because Apple's "terminology". If you buy into their bulls**t, you'll like use that reference. 300+ PPI displays have been around before i4 and because it's Apple, they can say whatever they want and people will believe it. You can probably visit a Verizon store and ask a customer which screen looked better, the iPhone 4/4S or the HTC Rezound. They would probably tell you "iPhone because it has retina display" even though the Rezound has a higher PPI on a bigger screen.

What makes a display "retina" quality is having a screen with a dense enough amount of pixels to where the human eye cannot pick out individual pixels on the screen making text and graphics look extra sharp. that starts to happen around the 315ppi mark.

Hehehehe,funny enough.retina display only looks good when there is no super amoled next tto it.as soon as you take a super amoled screen with even wvga resolution nxt to it u will realise that its crap.people just have to realise that samsung is king when it comes to mobile display.no matter how you pimp an lcd it will never match upto an amoled display.

and then you realize that super amoled display color are super saturated and it look like it is from a cartoon. That is the main problem with super amoled is that the color are too saturated.
