Retina Display iPad mini release date: Q3 of 2013?
When the iPad Mini was launched, some users might have been disappointed to see that the device did not come sporting a Retina Display. This week, however, brings good news related to this topic as a new batch of rumors have surfaced on the web.
Coming from Asia, this particular report sediments the already quite well established theory that Apple is getting ready to launch a Retina Display iPad Mini. And this time, we even got an approximate date – the device is going to see the light of day somewhere in the Q3 of 2013. And that’s not all. The company also has a fifth generation full fledged iPad in the works. It will feature a similar design to the iPad Mini and will sport a thinner bezel and a lighter frame.
Even if Apple experienced a decline in iPad 4 shippings recently, it doesn’t mean that the company will not get back on the saddle when the two new tablets will be released on the market. The first generation iPad mini however, is predicted to still attract the attention of many customers.
If a Retina Display iPad Mini would be released on the market, it would most likely boast a 2048x1536 display with a pixel density of 324 ppi. But who is going to be in charge of making the display? Apple is probably going to choose a partner like LG Display or AUO, Japan Display or even Sharp to do its bidding.
The Retina Display iPad Mini has also been predicted by people in the know like Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Muster who stated that Apple is going to unleash the device somewhere towards the end of the year.
