Leaked pictures hint at Retina display for Apple’s next iPad mini
| by Nikhil Subramaniam |
Apple’s iPad mini has been criticised for its relatively low-res screen, but Apple may be preparing to boost the resolution of the next-generation iPad mini to Retina levels. Reportedly, the next iPad mini would up the pixel density from 162 ppi to 326 ppi. This is not the first time we are hearing about the resolution being enhanced. If Apple does up the resolution of the iPad mini, the next-generation device will boast a resolution of 2058 x 1536 pixels.
Pictures leaked on Chinese forum Weiphone reveal what's said to be the new Apple iPad mini. The images show a thicker casing on the iPad mini 2 than the one used on the maiden edition.

Leaked pictures of the iPad 3 showed a thicker casing on the device, predicting a Retina display on that tablet, so this rumour does have a precedent. Obviously, the Retina Display upgrade will entail a price hike for the tablet, which is already priced in the higher end when it comes to slates with 7-inch displays.
Earlier reports hinted at the LED light bars being restructured from two to one in order to decrease the new iPad mini’s overall weight. We had also reported that Apple is going with the same design language used in the iPad mini for its next-gen 9.7-inch iPad.
