iPad Mini with Retina: As we have discussed in the past, the cost of adding Retina display technology to the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad mini will come at a price. That being said, the Cupertino-based company does its best to make the consumer happy. Not to mention the fact that adding Retina display only makes sense.
While the Chinese internet forum Weiphone is anything but official, there have been images posted today of what the author claims to be the casing of a Retina display iPad mini.
If you want to check out the images for yourself, visit the forum here.
There is no denying that the images appear to be of an iPad mini. Of course, that does not mean that what you are seeing is true.
AppleInsider took the time to check out the images and offer the following information:
“Notably, the writing and logo on the case are bright blue, where current mini models have black or silver detailing.”
“The parts shown in the images also appear to be thicker than current builds for the iPad mini. This fact is the cause of speculation that these pictures show off components from a forthcoming Retina iPad mini.”
If you believe that a thicker build means that the next generation device will offer Retina display, these images will likely get you excited.
People have been talking about a mini with Retina display since the first device was released last year. Whether or not Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) decides to move forward with this technology at the present time, despite the higher cost of production, is yet to be seen. As we mentioned in our previous article on this topic, “it could cost the Cupertino-based company up to 30 percent more in parts” to develop this device with Retina display.
So, what do you think? Do you believe these are genuine images of the soon-to-be Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad mini with Retina display? Share your thoughts below in the comment section.
