10.5″ iPad Pro may sport 2,224×1,668 screen with same density as 9.7″ iPads
Rhoda Alexander, IHS Markit's director in charge of tablets and PCs, shared some interesting observations with Forbes over the weekend regarding Apple's rumored new bezel-less iPad Pro model which, according to other analysts, would house a display measuring 10.5 inches inside a body the same size as 9.7-inch iPads.
According to Rhoda, the new iPad Pro model should have a 2,224-by-1,668 display with the same pixel density as 9.7-inch iPads. For context, Apple's 12.9-inch iPad Pro has a 2,732-by-2,048 Retina display at 264 pixels per inch and its 9.7-inch counterpart has a 2,048-by-1,536 screen, also at 264 pixels per inch.
She agreed that a lot skinnier side bezels would allow this rumored new iPad Pro model to pack in a 10.5-inch screen into the same body as current 9.7-inch iPads. She expects the new tablet to arrive in the March-April timeframe.
Apple is said to be holding a media event in March to unveil new tablets, iPhone 7 in Red and a 128-gigabye edition of iPhone SE. Supply chain sources told DigiTimes that Apple will announce four new tablets but added that the 10.5 and 12.9-inch models won't start hipping before May or June
