Apple: New iPad’s Retina Display is “the best display ever on a mobile device”

Apple: New iPad’s Retina Display is “the best display ever on a mobile device”The most anticipated feature to come aboard the new Apple iPad probably was the Retina Display of the device, more so as the high-resolution display had already made its way to the iPhone 4 as well as the iPhone 4S handsets.

Equipped with fourfold more pixels than its preceding version, the Retina Display of the new iPad is, according to Apple's claims, "the best display ever on a mobile device." It boasts a 2048 x 1536 resolution with 3.1 million pixels; thus implying 44 percent more color saturation.

However, with apprehensions that the additional pixels may bring along the chances of interference in the case of crossing of signals, which may affect picture quality, DisplaySearchBlog has recently explained that Apple has "elevated the pixels," to boost screen clarity, with the help of Super High Aperture (SHA) pixel designs.

The "breakthrough" technology which Apple has used chiefly involves the increase of the gap between the pixel electrodes and signal lines, with the use of "a 3 (micrometer) thick photo-definable acrylic resin layer to planarize the device."

The consequence of the `planarizing' of the tablet is that Apple has been able to limit cross talk, while also improving the image quality and aperture area. As such, the Retina Display of the new iPad - which is different from the display that Apple has used in the iPhone 4 and the iPhone 4S - can operate effectively at a high resolution and with increased brightness.
