The next generation iPad has been rumoured to feature a 2048 x 536 resolution screen, and new details have emerged that lend weight to the speculation.

News site MacRumors posted photos which included microscope-enlarged shots of a panel that it claimed would feature in the Apple iPad 3. This panel has now been turned over to iFixit, a site known for posting detailed tear-downs of gadgets and identifying individual components in them.

iFixit analysed the screen in more depth, and has posted clearer images that indicate the panel does in fact support a 2048 x 1536 resolution.

The site also laid out the panel next to a panel from an iPad 2, pointing out differences in the connectivity options. iFixit also noted that the new display was 0.6 ounces (17 grams) lighter than the iPad 2 display panel.

iFixit did not manage to get the display working with an iPad 2, due to the difference in connector types used. They could also not confirm who the manufacturer of the panel was.
