iPad 3 pictures hint at 8-megapixel camera

Taiwan’s Next Media’s Apple Daily has recently posted photos of what they allege to be the future iPad 3.

The images show that the handset has the same casing as the iPad 2, but with more tapered edges.

In addition, the camera on the back of the device is more complex. NextMedia reports that the iPad 3 could feature a digital camera incorporating an 8 megapixel sensor, similar to that built in the recent iPhone 4S.

The tablet is also rumored to have a faster quad-core A6 processor and high-resolution Retina display.

However, the site offers no details as to whether the iPad 3 will sport 4G LTE connectivity.
