Apple’s LCD manufacturing partners, including LG Display and Samsung, are facing a steep challenge in trying to build enough high-resolution displays in time to be included in the iPad 3, according to a new report. Citing a source who is in contact with Asian suppliers, Cnet reports that Apple is seeking to include a 2048×1536 resolution display in the iPad 3, quadrupling the number of pixels seen in prior iPad models. “They have production plans for 2,048 x 1,536 displays.
Starting in November. But those are only plans at this point,” said the source. “It’s not a question of making just one.
That, of course, can be done. The challenge is making lots of them. This is a quantum leap in pixel density.
