iPad with 2048x1536 Display Getting Closer

An iPad with 2048x1536 display may be getting closer to reality.
 


Samsung, an Apple vendor, will be demo’ing a 10.1-inch 2560x1600 display next week (via MacStories), called the PenTile RGBW display. The display is said to have a lower power budget which enables rendering the higher resolutions in a tablet form factor. 

So, the remaining items for a 2048x1536 iPad are – a faster cpu/gpu to render the display, more display RAM and all within the small power budget of the iPad.

None of the items are trivial but Apple can make it happen.
