September will be for Apple the hottest month of the year, as the American giant is expected to release its new iPhone 7 flagship, an Apple Watch 2 update and the fifth generation iPad Mini. We’re already shared with you the latest rumors about the specs of the iPhone 7, and now we turn out attention to the iPad Mini 5. The new tablet will be slimmer than it predecessor, but Apple won’t make any changes to its design.
If rumors will prove to be right, then the iPad Mini 5 will have a thickness of only 5mm, which means that it will be 1.1mm thinner than the iPad Mini 4. This news has pleased some fans, but others are worried that a thinner body is not really the best idea, because the battery must be reduced in order to fit inside the carcass.
Apple must be envious of Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 tablet, which is only 5.6mm thick, and this might be the reason why it would make everything possible to beat its record, but the company will need to find a balance between the battery capacity and the performance of the device, because a faster processor will consume more power.
We can’t guarantee you that the news is true or false, because the Cupertino-based manufacturer hasn’t made any statement yet, so you should take rumors with a bit of salt. There are no known details about the internal specs, but the iPad Mini 4 will most likely come with three variants of storage: 32GB, 64GB and 128GB.
The current iPad Mini 4 has a screen that measures 7.9-inch, which supports a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels at 324 ppi, it’s powered by an Apple A8 dual-core 1.5 GHz Typhoon processor backed by a PowerVR GX6450 GPU and 2GB of RAM and has a primary camera of 8MP with autofocus, and a secondary camera of 1.2MP. Its battery has a capacity of 5124 mAh battery (19.1 Wh) and it provides up to ten hours of multimedia usage. The price of the 32GB variant is $399, the 64GB variant costs $499 and for the 128GB variant you’d pay $599.
