First iPad 3 dissection by iFixit.

iPad 3 4G dissection

iFixIt was first in line to buy a legit iPad 3 with 4G LTE from Telstra’s midnight launch party. (It’s already March 16 in Melbourne Australia.)

Removing the front display of iPad 3 proved difficult. They used some heat, guitar picks, plastic opening tool, and heavy-duty suction cups. And what did they discover?

“The model numbers on the back of the 9.7 inch LCD leads us to believe this is a Samsung LCD.”

The 2048×1536 iPad 3 retina display has model number LTN097QL01-A02, which is probably made by Samsung because it makes a 1024×768 display with similar part number LTN097XL01-A0.

Previously, they noted that the iPad 3 uses different display connector than iPad 2 in this iPad retina display hands on video.
