Speaking of the iPad Mini, a major complaint from the consumers is that the smaller Apple tablet lacks the Retina Display, which was highly expected. The recent rumor is surrounded around this as it claims that the company might correct this by issuing a successor to the iPad Mini with a Retina Display.
A Chinese tech website with a pretty good track record of reputability say Apple suppliers already have Retina displays in the works for the iPad mini 2.
According to DoNews report, AU Optronics, China, one of the suppliers of iPad Mini display panels with 1024 x 768 pixel resolution is reportedly planning to start with the mass production of 2048 x 1536 resolution 7.9-inch displays after mid-2013. The report also claims that the tablet with Retina Display will boast an eye-pleasing pixel density of 324 ppi.
Offering the same resolution found on the third and fourth generation iPad would mean all the apps optimized for those tablets will look stunning on the iPad mini.
Also, sources claim that Apple will be using Sharp"s IGZO technology in the second generation iPad mini, which will allow the display to be thinner and more power efficient even while maintaining excellent color and good brightness.
Tech experts and analysts assume that iPad Mini 2 will be unveiled sometime during Fall 2013.
