Apple’s sharper retina display iPad on its way

LG Display CEO Kwon Young-soo told the Korea Times that the company is making a retina display for the iPad.

In the interview, the exec said that many more smartphone manufacturers would be using the company’s high-resolution display and specifically mentioned Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

A retina display, for those that need a buzzword translation, is a super-sharp screen that is supposed to have more pixels than the human eye can distinguish at a distance of about 10 to 12 inches. The iPhone 4 has a retina display with about 326 pixels per inch, making for sharper, crisper graphics.

The iPad 2 does not have the premium display, but there has been speculation that the next iPad will be a “Pro” version with the high-end screen.
