Report: Apple supplier working on mini Retina display

Apple supplier AU Optronics is guiding the production of a Retina display for the second-generation iPad mini, according to a new report. In an item translated from a Chinese tech website, the new iPad mini is reported to have the widely-expected iPad-matching resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, which translates at 7.9” to a pixel density of 324 ppi. The report is further confirmation of everything we’ve been hearing, with all signs pointing to the next iPad mini iteration containing a Retina display. [via Brightwire]

Well the good news is that AUO appears to be on the IGZO bandwagon, so the hope that the new mini retina display wouldn’t result in the same huge increase in power consumption and thus battery size, weight and thickness as the iPad 3/4 is still alive.  Hopefully Apple will follow the same thread with an update to the full size iPad that brings the same reduced power requirements, weight, thickness this fall as well.
