iPad 3 Casing Pics Show Thicker Tablet and Bigger Camera Lens

by Reads (2,573)

Pics of a purported iPad 3 case are giving more credence to previous reports that the next-generation iPad will be a thicker device with a larger camera hole.

MIC Gadget is reporting that the difference between the two cases is between 1 and 1.5mm. The thicker case on the iPad 3 is to accommodate for the larger battery that will be used to power the high-density display and perhaps the LTE antenna. Although the overall case is thicker, the photos show that the top glass panel on the iPad 3 could be slightly thinner.

The camera hole of the iPad 3 is significantly larger than its predecessor as well, and this is further evidence the iPad 3 will have an improved camera, perhaps with 8 megapixels. Speculation suggests that the iPad 3 camera will match that found on the iPhone 4S.

Additionally, it looks like the iPad 3 will have chrome or brushed aluminum volume keys as opposed to the current black plastic keys found on the iPad 2.

We reported on the iPad 3’s design and display earlier this week. Also make sure to check out our coverage of the photo leaks of the iPad 3’s case.
