“The successor of the popular iPad Mini is rumoured to be released after the launch of Google’s Nexus 7.7 in May. Thus, release date points to June,” Kristin Dian Mariano reports for The International Business Times. “Recent reports indicate the iPad Mini 2 will be an attempt to bring the iPad Mini design up to a premium standard alongside its larger counterpart with a Retina display and a processor upgrade, so we would expect the price to be relatively high accordingly.”
“According to reports, iPad Mini 2 will feature a screen with a resolution of 2048 x 1536,” Mariano reports. “This is almost four times the resolution of the present iPad Mini and is equal to the fourth generation iPad which was released along with the iPad Mini last year. AU Optronics has been rumoured to be making displays for the iPad Mini 2.”
Mariano reports, “Other specs include a more powerful dual core A7 processor and a 7.9 inch screen. It will also feature a 10-hour battery life, a FaceTime HD camera, and an iSight camera with 1080 pixels HD video recording. Apple is also trying to reduce the thickness of the iPad Mini 2 by using the Sharp’s IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) technology in its screens.”
