Fifth-generation iPad front panel leaked? (Updated)

A photo of an alleged front panel for Apple’s fifth-generation iPad has leaked on Apple.pro. The picture shows what appears to be a smaller front panel — the left and right bezel are nearly eliminated, and the areas above and below the screen also appear to be reduced in size. [via 9to5Mac]

The image is consistent with what we reported in January regarding the upcoming device. Visit our fifth-generation iPad rumor page to see what else we’ve heard about the device.

Update: Nowhereelse.fr (translated link) reports the leaked photo is actually the front of an iPad mini.

Update (Aug. 28): Sonny Dickson has posted what appear to be legitimate photos of the fifth-generation iPad’s front panel. The photo below shows a slightly larger side bezel than the previous alleged leak, with a connector in a different location.
