iPad mini 2 pictures depict rear panel, go up against iPad 5

We’ve been talking a bunch about what to expect from the iPad mini 2 in recent days, with a lot of the focus being placed on details of the new tablet’s display. While we hear clashing accounts of hardware specifics, there really hasn’t been much in the way of photographic evidence to check out. We saw some pics that just might be the tablet’s rear shell back in February, but things have been quiet in recent months. Today there’s some fresh meat to pore over, with another look at possible iPad mini 2 hardware.

This news comes to us via the same source as yesterday’s iPad 5 pics, and we even get to see the two in comparison here. However, while there were some noteworthy observations to be made about changes to Apple’s design with this new iPad, we’ve got much less to think about today; the new iPad mini 2 shell appears to not take any large steps away from its predecessor’s layout.

We’re still probably looking at new hardware, and not an old iPad mini 1 frame, since the absence of any iPad logo or other text on the back suggests this could still be prototype hardware. Don’t look for any major changes prior to release, though, so this is most likely very close to how the finished tablet will arrive.
