Purported Photos of Next Generation iPad mini Backplate
Tech Sina is reporting that purported photos of the next generation iPad mini’s backplate have been published on the Netizen Wei Feng forum. The forum user “250441095” photos show that the next generation iPad shell appears to be thicker than the current generation.
According to the report:[quote] “250441095” netizens released a total of 9 photos did not picture any description, but this is obviously not the iPad mini component. From the photos, the metal shell to be thicker, but from the point of view camera, speaker, and punch position of the interface does not change much.

The increase in thickness is a sure sign that Apple might be implementing a Retina Display in the next generation iPad mini. The Cupertino-based company adopted a similar strategy in building the third iPad generation iPad with Retina Display.
