Ipad Mini 2 – Malaysia Expected Release Date, Price, Specifications

Retina display in newest possibly “multicoloured” iPad Mini 2

When it was released in November 2012, Apple’s iPad mini became one of the most sought-after handy tablets in the market. Gripped by a single hand, one can access the latest games, applications and social networking sites via the palm of their hands. Just like all the other iPhone products, it seems that iPad mini won’t celebrate its birthday without the release of an upgrade.

A rumored iPad mini 2 is rumored to be on the works and for release by October in an exclusive Apple event. Along with iPad 5, new versions of iMac and Apple TV, iPad mini will sport upgrades that many avid Apple fans are looking forward.

Display and Design

One of the let-downs of this mini iPads is its display. With later versions of the iPad already running in retina display, iPad mini was still in 1024 x 768 pixel resolution with pixels still recognizable by the naked eye. This downgraded display was quite a throwback for some users. But rumor has it that the second generation iPad mini will be in stunning retina display at a whooping 324 pixels per inch.

This display, as we all know, would drain all that battery out so Apple might find it wise to install larger, long-lasting batteries to keep up with the display requirements for at least 10-hours. This would consequently mean that the iPad Mini 2 might be a bit heavier compared to its predecessor.

On the other hand, fans may be looking forward to a possible multicoloured body as in iPhone 5c. Still, Apple might house the iPad Mini 2 in thinner casing and narrower bezels at the sides of the screen.

Processor, Camera and Other Features

The latest iPad mini might also be installed with A7 processor still in dualcore but with quadcore graphic. Otherwise, we might just expect an A6x chip that can carry enough load for gaming and several applications. Apple’s latest iOs 7 is also installed.

Another exciting feature of the new iPad mini is its rear camera that is now at 8 megapixel and its former 1.2 MP front camera can now record 1080p video instead of 720p – perfect for capturing rare moments.

As expected, Apple’s latest Touch ID Fingerprint scanner may also be present in this latest iPad mini version.

Price and Release Date

Rumors have been consistent that Apple will announce the release of iPad Mini 2 by October 22 in an exclusive, invitation-only event. The price of this latest Apple innovation is not as clear as day but some blogs and online portals say that iPad Mini 2 may be availed at £269 or RM1370.
