“With rumors of the fifth-generation iPad taking on a design similar to that of the iPad mini, we’ve once again commissioned CiccareseDesign to create some fresh renderings offering a very good idea of what the updated iPad will look like,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.

“As has been described in rumors and calculated from the rear shell photos, the fifth-generation iPad appears to be notably smaller than the current model,” Slivka reports, “adopting significantly thinner side bezels in portrait orientation and slightly smaller top and bottom bezels.”

“The new iPad shell was shown alongside an iPad mini enclosure, providing CiccareseDesign a frame of reference from which to take measurements and produce these mockups,” Slivka reports. “We believe the relative sizes shown in the following images offer an accurate view of how the upcoming iPad 5 will compare in size.”
