New photos of the alleged iPad Mini emerged online and revealed that the device will have a thinner bezel around the screen.
Chinese website Apple.pro posted the images last weekend was immediately picked up by various tech websites. The significant feature of iPad Mini showed in the photos is the slimmer bezel around the screen display.
Apple is expected to release the rumored 7-inch iPad Mini, which is rumored to have 7.3 mm thick, 134.73mm wide, 200.13mm long, and feature a mini dock connector, redesigned speakers, and add a microphone on the backside.
The iPad Mini will feature a rear camera and a front camera for FaceTime, although the pixels of shooters are not yet revealed.
According to Mashable, iPad mini will also include "cellular data antenna, the mockup seems to be very thin and features a smaller dock connector just like the next-generation iPhone. The unit also seems to have larger speakers near the dock."
"Instapaper developer Marco Arment apparently stumbled into a few clues about the existence of the iPad mini. In the access logs of his app, he found references to two new device models - iPad 2,5 and iPad 2,6. This coincides with speculation that the iPad mini would effectively be an iPad 2 with a smaller 7.85-inch screen," the report said.
Initial rumors claimed that Apple will introduce the new iPad Mini on September 12 along with the latest generation of iPhone. However, new rumors claimed that Apple's smaller tablet will hit the tech market in October.
