“Four sources today slipped details of what’s expected to appear in the next iPad. Supporting case leaks, one mentioned that it would have dual cameras,” Electronista reports. “Two told Reuters that Genius Electronic Optical and Largan Precision had newly secured camera contracts with Apple likely attached to the project, although they couldn’t directly link the work to the new iPad.”
“Another insider also backed claims that the revamp would have a higher resolution display, although it wasn’t said how sharp this would be,” Electronista reports. “To mimic the resolution increase from the iPhone 4, Apple would need a 2048×1536 display that hasn’t been seen so far. Wintek has been named as the supplier for the touchscreen controller and has been involved with most Apple touchscreen devices in the past.”
Electronista reports, “The design would also be thinner and more importantly lighter, the same contact for the display leak said… Extra part listings at Kodawarisan have alluded to an SD card slot and shown a space in third-party cases for one just behind the usual speaker area.”
