The tech giant, Apple Inc. is expected to launch iPad Mini 5 alongside the latest iPhone 7 this year in September as per the rumors. The upcoming iPad will be the successor of iPad Mini 4 which was released back in September last year. There are also rumors about the modernized specifications and design of the upcoming iPad devices.
While most of the Apple fans are waiting for the announcements about new iPhone 7, some fans are even more excited about the upcoming iPad Mini 5 than the new iPhone. There are also rumors claiming that Apple is about to rename the iPad Mini 5 to iPad Pro Mini. However, the reports are been speculating all over the internet by various individuals, still, there is no leaks or teasers about the iPad Mini 5 so far.
Based on a report by NeuroGadget, the upcoming iPad Mini 5 will flaunt a thinner (5mm) body while compared with iPad Mini 4’s 6.1mm body. The device will be made of tough Aluminium. Apart from this, the screen and camera features of new iPad Mini will be the same as of its predecessor. The existing iPad Mini 4 has featured a 7.9-inch display with an 8MP of the primary rear camera and front-snapper of 1.2MP for selfies.
The thinner body of the upcoming device may result in lower battery performance. But there’s still a ray of hope, as Apple is focusing on the reduction of battery sizes without compromise on its charge capacities. Such development in battery technology is worthy of iPad series.
The new iPad Mini 5 will likely to sport 3D Touch display for enhanced sensitivity and responsiveness of the touch. The said 3D Touch technology is still under development and it was earlier used in the iPhone 6 models. Hence the upcoming iPad Mini is expected to incorporate 3D Touch or Force Touch in it.
The new device will also likely to be powered by A9 (X) processor. And on the storage front, the devices will be available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB internal storage variants. Moreover, the device will come up with Dust and Water resistant features with the IP68 certification just like the latest Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy Note 7 devices. The speculated iPad Mini 5 can also be offered in Rose Gold color option.
