Recently, we published a news regarding the delay of iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display – similarly many tech blogs also posted the news according their sources of news and rumors. However, there is a strong rumor presently wandering is that the sales of iPad 5 would be outnumbered against the sales of iPad Mini 2.

WSJ said in the blog post:

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.

However, there is a huge chance of getting a iPad Mini inspired design as well as thinner body and bezels on new iPad 5 as the previous model iPad 4 was thicker than the iPad Mini. But, the battery thing would be a challenge for the thinness of the device, because Apple never shipped any of the tablets under 10 hours of battery life. The insertion of Retina Display will also needs a better battery, which also needs a better space – ultimately related to the thickness and weight of the device. Retina Display with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution screen need a large backlight as well as more graphical processing in GPU, which could ultimately lead to the battery draining.

It’s upto Apple, which should release both lighter iPad 5 as well as Retina display’d iPad Mini 2 without compromising on any other features and specs sheets and we know- they never did it in history. Well, October 22 is not far, only 1 day left – what’s your guess?
