iPad mini screen leak shows 4:3 aspect ratio 1

The latest iPad mini leak reportedly shows the device’s LCD screen, which has the same 4:3 aspect ratio of the standard iPad and is nearly 8” long diagonally, measuring roughly 162 mm x 124 mm. Photos of the new screen were posted at ETrade Supply.

Some prior reports suggested the iPad mini might have a 16:9 or 3:2 aspect ratio, closer to an iPhone or iPod touch, and though casing leaks have suggested that the screen ratio might not be exactly 4:3, long-standing rumors have claimed that the smaller device will have the same 1024×768 resolution as the original iPad and iPad 2. Final details will likely become certain on Oct. 23, when Apple is expected to unveil the device.

  1. The screen resolution makes total sense as it means easier compatibility with iOS, apps, etc. Apple obviously is in a rush to get this to market, so the easier the better.
