Talk on Apple’s iPad 3 is increasingly filling tech space. The latest interesting murmur says that the next generation iPad will be coming with the 2048 x 1536 Retina Display. So iFans cheer up, the iPad 3 will surely give your eyes a treat.

Several leaks have already told us that the iPad 3 will come sporting a large 2048 x 1536 resolution Retina Display manufactured by Sharp. The ultra-high resolution of the 9.7-inch screen was confirmed after the display panel underwent testing.

To our naked eyes, the resolution difference between the iPad 2 and iPad 3 display panels may not be visible. But when the panels were scrutinized under a microscope, it was found that the iPad 3 display pixels looked to be one-quarter in size than its predecessor.

Though the raw iPad 3 display was not powered, the panel was checked with the help of some lighting which shows the pixels on it. After highlighting, a cluster of 4 pixels (2×2) of the iPad 2 was evaluated with the same area on the iPad 3.

Interestingly, the same cluster on the iPad 3 was found sporting 16 pixels (4×4), which is precisely twice the resolution in each direction when compared to the iPad 2. From this finding, it needs to be estimated that iPad 3 will be having a 2048 x 1536 resolution that is double the iPad 2’s 1024 x 768 pixel display.

Meanwhile, the iPad 3 has been rumored to be equipped with a quad-core A6 processor, a better camera and 4G LTE connectivity. It is speculated that the new iPad will be introduced in the media event on March 7th.
