Higher-res iPad 6 In The Works According To KGI
Gabriel Roşu / 3 years ago
Those of you who were eagerly anticipating the upcoming iPad 5 should consider shifting perspective and looking into the not-so-near future, at the iPad 6. KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is talking iPad 6 which he anticipates that will be a 9.7-inch iPad with a pixel density that exceeds today’s iPad by 30 percent to 40 percent.
That’s considerable, as the iPad 4 already has a pretty high pixel density of 264 pixels per inch. The iPad 5 is expected to maintain that pixel density but be thinner and lighter. The Ultra-High resolution iPad would appear in mid-2014.
He does not expect, however, a large 12.9-inch iPad: “Contrary to speculation that next year’s iPad next year may come in a 12-inch form, or larger, we think it will not change from the current 9.7-inch format as we think a 12-inch iPad would not provide a good mobility experience given today’s technology limitations,” he predicted.
Whether that speculation about the non-appearance of a large iPad is borne out, remains to be seen as there has been a lot of supply chain chatter about a large iPad. Kuo also expects Apple to announce an iPad Mini Retina at Apple’s media event later this month.
