Retina Display Standards
The Apple retina display has 264ppi pixel density compared to 326ppi in Apple iPhone 4s. Because a clear definition of retina display does not exist, Apple finds it easy to handle the difference in resolution. Apple gets its displays from Sharp, LG, and Samsung. LG and Samsung use a-Si TFT technology, which have a pixel density upper limit of 264ppi that may be used in the new iPad while Sharp uses the new IGZO display.
