Rumor Has Next iPad Mini Sporting Apple’s Second-Sharpest Display

iPad MiniThe next-generation iPad mini will get a display with 324 pixels per inch, says Chinese site My Drivers. The information stems from sources at Taiwanese Apple suppliers, who say that AU Optronics is piloting production of the new tablet. The hardware is expected to use a 2048×1536 display resolution, the same as the fourth-generation 9.7-inch iPad, despite having to compress that detail onto a 7.9-inch screen.

324ppi would give the Mini Apple’s second-sharpest display, below only the 326ppi of the iPhone 5. For comparison, the 9.7-inch iPad is rated at 264ppi, while the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro has 227.

The current Mini uses a 1024×768 display, at just 163ppi; that makes its screen inferior to the Nexus 7, which has a 7-inch 1280×800 screen with 216ppi.
