If these purportedly leaked images are indeed accurate, then you are looking at the second generation iPad mini with Retina display.
Suspect as always, these pics come to us courtesy of a Chinese Internet forum. As you might have expected, these are not formally sanctioned images for release by Apple or its manufacturing partners in the far east.
Having first appeared on Weiphone, we are told that the pics showcase the rear casing of the iPad mini 2.
The images show a device with a similar design as the current iPad Mini, but a little thicker, presumably to make room for a larger battery to power a high-resolution Retina display.
While it seems dubious that Apple would actually strive to make the iPad mini 2 thicker for the sake of accommodating the improved display, stranger things have happened.
As we get closer to the anticipated springtime launch window for the next-generation iPad mini, there's a good chance that more leaked product images will find their way to our retinas, regardless of how legitimate they may or may not actually be.
