iPad 3 Rumors: Larger Battery, Better Camera, Display Overhaul & More!

by at . Comments

As the iPad 3 launch date nears, rumors regarding the next generation are swirling online, especially after a leaked photo of the new back panel emerged.

That image hinted at changes such as a larger battery and some design elements such as an improved processor, better display and more powerful camera.

A mere glimpse at the casing may not reveal much but a closer look at the back panel suggests at least four major changes to be expected in the iPad 3:

  1. New Internal Hardware. Different logic board mounting indicates that a better A6 processor - instead of the A5 processor-based logic board - may be imminent. 
  2. Larger Width of Logic Board. Larger width of the logic board of the new iPad compared to its predecessor suggests a larger and longer-lasting battery.
  3. Improved Camera Lens. Apple already launched a new camera in the iPhone 4S. Thus, an updated version of the camera can be expected in the iPad 3.
  4. Different LCD Mounting. The smaller and different mounting system of the logic board supports the speculation that Apple will redesign the display.

Some theorize that item #4 above could mean a revolutionary Retinal display that would feature double-resolution screen 2048×1536 pixels in dimension.

With modified IGZO (indium, gallium, zinc) technology and pixel density of 330 ppi, this would be an upgrade over iPad 2's 1024x768 and 132 ppi density.

While Apple has not made any sort of official announcement about its launch date for the iPad 3, most experts are indicating an early March launch.
