The upcoming Apple iPad Mini successor has been making headlines all over the world over the last few days after analysts suggested the obvious; that the Apple iPad Mini 2 will feature a Retina display, made by Samsung, but today things got a bit more interesting after the device’s rear panel allegedly leaked showing that there would be no major design changes to the low cost tablet offering from Apple.
The Apple iPad Mini 2 is likely to launch sometime next month alongside the rumoured Apple iPhone 5S, Apple iPhone 5C and Apple iPad 5. The iPad Mini 2 will apparently feature a ‘Retina’ display made either by Sharp, LG or Samsung, with a resolution similar to that on the larger Apple iPad line. The Apple iPad Mini will even have the larger iPad 5 steal its design, which shows just how committed Apple is to their creation. Today’s leaked rear panel comes courtesy of FanaticFone and shows a rear panel similar to that of its predecessor with the odd addition of a plastic Apple logo similar to the one on the larger iPads instead of one that’s just printed onto the device like its predecessor. What’s more the leak confirms that there will be no major changes to the tablet’s design either, which may be a good thing.
The Apple iPad Mini 2 will not only get a clearer display, but is likely to feature a better processor, graphics processor and RAM in addition to improved battery performance and the addition of Apple iOS 7 straight out of the box. If that doesn’t convince you, what will?
