Get the most recent on iPhone/iPad innovation: Ipads Advisor
It’s not that much of a stretch of the imagination to think that Apple may reveal gold, or ‘space grey,’ iPads in the upcoming month(s). That’s why it’s quite intriguing that Chinese tech website DoNews has actually uploaded pictures of a champagne iPad mini 2, total with TouchID sensor.
Not sufficient evidence? Sonny Dickson, the exact same fellow who released the most accurate pre-release photos of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c, has today tweeted out his own details regarding the inevitable iPad mini launch, in addition to a picture of an unassembled iPad mini 2 in ‘space gray.’
From the unconfirmed pictures, in addition to Dickson’s forecasts, it appears that there are several similarities in between the most up to date flagship iPhone and the honest iPad mini. As you can see in the images above and below, the next-gen iPad minis will allegedly can be found in champagne gold and the same area grey we have seen with the iPhone 5s.
Dickson also tweeted, without revealing photos, that the iPad mini’ll be available in silver also. Additionally, we might see a TouchID fingerprint scanner on the Apple tablets, also received images.
No word yet on whether the iPad mini’ll certainly sport a high-res Retina screen.
As with any Apple leakage, these images are far from confirmed, however Dickson has a strong track record and the details appear to make good sense in terms of Apple’s development. After the iPhone 5 came out in the anodized aluminum black ‘slate’, so too did the iPad mini.
Dickson also pointed out that, according to his sources, the iPad mini 2 would consist of Apple’s brand-new A7 64-bit chip, the M7 movement coprocessor we are seeing in the iPhone 5s, together with 1GB of RAM. When it comes to the 9.7-inch iPad 5, Dickson’s sources revealed that it’ll pack 2GB of RAM under the hood, probably sporting the same specifications as little brother.
Again, we haven’t even got an invite to the iPad/iPad mini launch occasion (anticipated to go down sometime in October), so it’s far too early to inform the legitimacy of these cases and/or photos.
Still, these are not too far outside the realm of possibility.
