Apparently, silver and Space Gray aren’t the only two trims the iPad 5 will come in. The insane popularity of the Champagne trim on iPhone 5S forced Apple to make a last-minute change to its product stack. The company is mulling one for its upcoming 9.7-incher.
The Champagne iPad 5 and iPad mini 2 features the same shade of gold as the central portion of the Champagne iPhone 5S, since the iPad 5 doesn’t feature a two-tone back. The matching front bezel is likely to be white, just like on the iPhone 5S.
According to previously leaked news, the iPad 5 will adopt a similar narrow frame design, same processor and camera as on the previous generations, a 9.7-inch IGZO panel, support for stereo speakers, weight and thickness will be reduced, and may be equipped with fingerprint recognition. The iPad mini 2’s shape will have the same design, but the processor and camera will be improved, it may support fingerprint identification, but may not be equipped with a Retian screen.
Chinese publication CTechCN posted these pictures of what it claims to be the Champagne iPad 5 and iPad mini 2. The pictures look plausible to us although we won’t bet our gold on it.
