The iPad mini 2 is once again back on the rumor mills for a release sometime in 2013. Sources have revealed that LG is going to start developing a smaller retina display for these devices sometime in either June or July this year.
Ever since the iPad mini was released in 2012, customers immediately noticed the poor quality of the display. Having a retina display screen on the iPad mini 2 will make it a lot easier to read without the appearance of any pixels as well as easier to play games and look at photos. This device along with the iPad 2 are two of the only Apple devices which don’t have retina display. It is understandable in the iPad 2 since the device is quite old now.
But, there is absolutely no reason why the iPad mini shouldn’t have included a retina display. Reputed sources had earlier said that the iPad mini 2 was not going to come with retina display but a new iPad mini was going to be released in 2014 with retina display.
The retina display for the iPad mini 2 is rumored to have a 2048 x 1536 resolution just like the iPad 4. One the smaller screen of the mini 2 this would give a ppi rating of 324. This is almost double what you have on the current mini. Chances are it might even be more than the iPad 4 or the iPad 5.
We believe that Apple is going to announce the iPad mini 2 along with retina display as well as a ne processor. The current mini uses an Apple A5 processor and we believe the mini 2 will at least have an A6 processor.
There are even some rumors doing rounds that the iPad mini 2 was going to be launched this fall with the latest iPhone 5S.
