Leaked iPad Mini 2 Shell Shows Similar Design
Earlier we had reported about Apple Plans for the new iPad Mini and iPad. This time around an extensive gallery of latest leaked iPad Mini 2 images by Sonnydickson suggests that the plan is very pretty much on track.
In more than 20 images of the iPad Mini 2, unibody chassis showing a silver-finish device are of a WiFi + Cellular version, going by the plastic antenna insert on the upper rear panel.
A similar design to the first generation iPad mini. Perhaps the only difference looking at the rear shell is again one that we’ve seen before. Instead of being a glorified sticker on the outside of the iPad shell, the Apple logo looks to be embedded within the metal back panel.
As far as the display is concerned, an obvious upgrade over the first-gen iPad mini is bound to emerge. Apple will indeed opt for a Retina display on the iPad Mini 2. Both Samsung and LG Display are apparently supplying panels, while other sources have confirmed that 2048 x 1536 is the target resolution, just like the full-sized iPad with Retina display.
The iPad mini release date is unknown, though speculation suggests that it could be before the holiday season beginning in October – 12 months after the original iPad mini made its debut. This seems more likely than the launch on September 10 event.
Apple is yet to officially send out invites to its upcoming event, As of the latest rumors, the event will see not only fresh iPhones announced.
