The company got its hands on the new Apple tablet after iFixit CXO Luke Soules flew all the way down to Australia to be the first to do a live teardown. And according to Soules, the new iPad's display screen really does live up to the hype.
"Oh goodness! It's so beautiful!" he during the live teardown on iFixit's website. "Even turned off, the 2048x1536 pixel 'Retina Display' seems to radiate with colors one could not begin to imagine."
The new iPad's display screen has been touted as one of the tablet's key improvements, along with Apple's new A5X chipset that features dual-core CPU processing and quad-core GPU processing. During his teardown of the device, Soules said that the model numbers on the back of the 9.7-inch display led him to believe that the new screen is indeed a Samsung LCD, as has been for the past few days in the tech media.
