Sharp’s IGZO display will not be seen in 3rd gen iPads
A few weeks ago we reported that DigiTimes was claiming that Apple’s next generation of iPads would sport Sharp’s IGZO displays. Korea’s Electronic Times Internet News (ETN) is reporting that is simply not the case. It says that Samsung Electronics and LG Displays will be the LCD suppliers for Apple’s iPad 3.

Now, the original report from DigiTimes was not completely off the mark. ETN states that Sharp was in the running to be the display supplier, but failed Apple’s approval process for mass production.

Rumors have surfaced claiming the iPad 3 will have a resolution 4 times higher than the iPad 2 and will enter Retina territory by breaking the 300 ppi boundary. If there is any truth to that rumor, chances are we won't be seeing it happen on an IGZO display. Ultimately, as with all Apple rumors – only time will tell.
