Apples latest iteration of its iPad mini is expected to be unveiled on the 16th of October – a date that Apple has sent press conference invitations for.
This new 7-inch tablet is expected to be released under a different name however, with speculation from some sources claiming it won’t follow suit of a normal number naming protocol – its older brother was not released as the ‘iPad mini 2’, but called the ‘iPad mini with Retina display’.
Starting 10pm Pacific time (6pm UK time) on Thursday, Apple is expected to release this new product to the world in Berlin, Germany. The new tablet is expected to be for sale before two weeks time after this date.
There isn’t really any official information as to the new iPad mini specifications, but we’ve been able to bring together some leaks and rumors for you:
- A very similar look and feel to the iPad mini 2
- Featuring a Retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536
- The introduction of Retina HD (as seen in the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus)
- A rear-facing 4MP and 1.2MP front-facing camera
- Out-of-the-box iOS8
The price for the new iPad mini is unknown, but be sure to check back to eTeknix as we’ll report on the launch when it happens. For now, we’ll share with you an image leaked of the final design thanks to nowhereelse.
