Next iPad Mini Rumoured to Use Retina Display

With apple gearing up for its upcoming Gen-Y iPad Mini’s release, the markets are already abound with rumors about what it can and cannot do. The latest of those rumor is that it is supposed to feature Retina Display, according to The Wall Street Journal, which is supposed to make its debut by the end of the year. The credibility of this rumor is further backed by Apple’s iOS Beta 4, which showed strong references to the future generations of advanced hardware buried in the beta code. But while sharp-eyed developers scrutinizing it, it was initially analysed that it would not have a Retina Display, later reports have effectively countered it.

With the heavy and rich terminology of the phrase ‘Retina Display’, Apple has indeed created a demand. It has no spectacular effect other than touting a very high pixel density and therefore, image clarity.


The specifications of this new iPad Mini have been announced already. It has a 7.9 inch display and has a resolution of 1024*768 pixels. As it is obvious, the screen is a far way away from competing with its peers which have a full 1080 pixel clarity.

Talking about its strongest competitors, there is obviously the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 and the Google Nexus 7, whose image clarity and cost effectiveness is far better than that of the iPad Mini. Seems like the rumor mill is spinning rumors at very opportune times indeed!
