According to DigiTimes’ anonymous sources, Apple will release a “high-end” iPad model in early 2012, most likely around March, that will sport double the battery capacity of its predecessor.
If accurate, the high-end next-generation iPad will feature a new 14,000 mAh battery as opposed to the 6,500 mAh battery that’s currently used in the iPad 2!
Additionally, DigiTimes has reported that there will be three next-generation iPad models: a low-end model (it will likely retail for less than the iPad 2’s price scheme), a mid-range model (it will likely retail for the same price the iPad 2’s price scheme) and a high-end model (it will likely retail for more than the iPad 2’s price scheme).
While the low-end model is rumored to have the same battery life and screen resolution as the iPad 2, the higher-end models are expected to feature the 14,000 mAh battery (as mentioned above) and a screen resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 with dual-LED backlighting.
With that said, stay tuned for more news and rumors related to the next-generation iPad!
