Apple is now readying a revamped iPad Mini with a high-resolution “retina” display. It’s also working on a thinner, lighter version of its standard 9.7-inch iPad, using a thin film instead of the glass found in existing models, based on information from the company’s parts suppliers.Calling it “the world’s best-selling tablet computer”, WSJ notes that the iPad mini is estimated to account for nearly two of every three iPads sold.
The well-informed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo thinks both new iPads will share the same eight-megapixel iSight camera on the back, with the iPad 5 running the Apple-designed A7X chip, an improved version of the iPhone 5s’s A7 silicon with faster graphics.
The iPad mini, Kuo conjures up, will run the A7 chip and have the Retina display, like the rumors have predicted, but cautioned the iPad mini 2 will be tough to find at launch time.
