Couple of days after we had an analyst claim that iPad 2 may get a thinner and anti-reflection screen, we have folks over at 9To5Mac telling us that they are in possession of what they claim is an iPad 2 display.

9to5Mac claims that the display “fresh out of China†is lighter, thinner and of overall better build quality than the existing iPad display. Its thickness is apparently over a millimeter less than the current generation iPad display.

9to5Mac report:

At this point, we cannot tell if the resolution is higher (or “Retina”) but it is definitely higher quality in terms of its build. The iPad 2′s display is also lighter, and over a mm thinner than the current iPad’s display with a smaller surrounding frame.

A commenter at 9to5Mac has pointed that the model number of the display is LP097X02-SLN1 – which happens to be a 9.7 inch H-IPS display made by LG. This display according to him, boasts of the same resolution as the current iPad – 1024*768.

Ming-Chi Kuo, an analyst at Concord Securities who claims to have knowledge of the components that will be used in iPad 2, has revealed that iPad 2 would sport a thinner and anti-reflection screen.

H-IPS displays allegedly also offer better contrast and off axis viewing compared to normal IPS panels. So there could actually be some improvement in the user experience on the iPad 2. But yes, if you were looking forward to that rumored super high resolution screen like us then it looks like we are going to be disappointed.
