iPad 3 Release will use dual-LED

We miss you Steve!

What do you expect from the iPad 3 display with the next release? The asian supply chain monitoring website,Digitimes reveals that Apple’s iPad team is currently considering a few options that will offer LED backlighting on iPad 3. There is backlighting on the iPad 2 now but it needs a big upgrade in order to match up with expected higher-resolution display reportedly set to launch with the iPad 3 release.

Digitimes says the following on their report:

“With the next-generation iPads expected adopt LCD panels with resolutions higher than 2048 by 1536, the current single LED light bar designed for the iPad 2 has to be modified in order to maintain or strengthen the brightness the panels.”

The Digitimes sources revealed that Apple will most likely add the dual LED light bars design to the new iPad 3. They believe that engineers have solved problems related to heat dissipation and battery consumption with the dual LED light bar design. The new LED light bar concepts seem to point to the light bar in a single-bar form factor but with two LED chips inside; the other has revealed the use of dual-LED light bars, the Digitimes article reveals.

Like most of us iPad fans we can’t wait for the iPad 3 release early next year. It is pretty much a given already that we’ll see a higher-resolution “Retina” iPad 3 display.

Been an iPad user from day one of its release. Apple has been innovative from the beginning and now the rest of the world is getting on board. It's great to be able to spread the word about one of their mobile devices.
