The New iPad: Retina Display, 4G LTE, 5MP iSight Camera and A5X Chip

Apple has announced the next generation iPad, which they call it "The new iPad." Surprisingly, there is no special number or letters indicate its generation (iPad 3, iPad HD, etc.) It's just "iPad" The device comes with stunning Retina Display, 5 megapixel iSight camera, 4G LTE, and the new A5X processor. Some of its new features after the jump!

Retina Display

The new Retina Display has four times more pixel than its predecessor, 2048x1536 resolution with the total of 3.1 millions pixel and 264 ppi. It will certainly be one of the new iPad's key selling point. This display actually has million more pixel than HD 1080p TV!

New 5MP iSight Camera

The camera has the fully upgrade. The new iPad comes with 5 megapixel camera that has advanced optics, same as in iPhone 4S. It can record HD video in full 1080p and also automatically stabilizes the video.

New A5X Chip

The new iPad is powered by the upgraded dual-core A5X processor with quad-core graphics. Apple also claims that the new iPad will still have the "legendary 10-hour battery". And I believe this is the reason why the new iPad is slightly thicker than iPad 2 (about half-millimeter).


With “ultrafast 4G LTE”, the new iPad can browse the web, stream different forms of media and download content faster than every before! The 4G LTE version is also capable of operating on GSM/UMTS networks across the world (including HSPA+ and DC-HSDPA). In ideal conditions, users will experience download speeds of up to 73 Mbps over LTE and up to 21.1 Mbps over HSPA+


With the dictation, iPad user can search the web, take notes, write text and email easier than ever before. Unfortunately, there is still no Siri assistance on the new iPad, but we still have next year.

With these awesome new features, the new iPad still holds the same prices. For Wifi only, $499 for 16GB, $599 for 32GB and $699 for 64GB; Wifi + 4G, $629 for 16GB, $729 for 32GB and $829 for 64GB. Apple also announced that it will reduce the price of 16GB iPad for $100, so iPad's prices are $399 for Wifi only model and $529 for Wifi + 3G model.
