iPad 3 Dissection: Retina Display Samsung LCD?
First iPad 3 dissection by iFixit.
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.”
iPad 3 LTN097QL01-A02 Retina Display
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.
