Foxconn, the product manufacturer of Apple in China is keeping a low hand on the security of upcoming Apple products. As the announcement of new products is getting closer, the leaks are getting an increment day by day. Following the preceding leaks of the iPhone 5 and iPad Mini, today a Chinese Tech Website reported about the iPad Mini Rear Shell leaked out of Foxconn. The Rear Shell that was leaked was made of finest quality material and the rear shell has come from a topnotch factory. At first, the person who got hands on the iPad Mini Rear Shell wasn’t aware of the fact that he has the most anticipated device’s rear shell in his hand.
He took some snapshots of the leaked Rear Shell and found out about the rear shell was linked to Apple’s upcoming iPad Mini. After finding out the fact behind the rear shell, the person shared some clicks on the website of that real shell.
As shown in the picture above, the quality of the iPad Mini Real Shell is same as of the finishing one. The quality of the iPad Mini rear shell is much better and realistic than the previous leaked versions. However, the iPad Mini Rear Shell points the same thing that we have seen in the iPhone 5’s back end leaked shell. Both the Devices carry the same dock connector and the same speaker grill. The only difference of size is in grills in both.
The iPad Mini rear shell compared with iPad 2 points the size of iPad Mini to be smaller. The size might be of 7-inch as previous reports have reported about a smaller tablet will be released by Apple this fall. One thing is interesting that Apple has allotted a camera in the iPad Mini as we can see in the above leaked photo. We expect the camera in iPad Mini would be of 5 Mega Pixel or 8 Mega Pixel.
The story doesn’t ends here.
There is one more thing that needs to figured out and asked by all of you.
