We are expecting Apple to announce their new iPad 5 over the next couple of months, and now according to a recent report the iPad 5 is expected to be thinner and lighter than the current generation iPad 4.
According to KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPad 5 is expected to be around 15 percent thinner than the iPad 4 and also around 25 percent lighter than the current model.
We think the tablet will, at 7.5-8.0mm, be 15% thinner than iPad 4. The new device will likely be about 500 grams, or some 25% lighter than iPad 4, run on an A7X processor, and sport cameras with similar specs to the iPad 4’s (front HD, rear 5MP). The casing shape and color (silver and black) and narrow bezel design will be similar to the iPad mini’s.
The iPad 5 is expected to use the same GF2 technology that is used in the current generation iPad Mini, which would allow Apple to design a thinner display for the new iPad 5.
As well as the new slimmer and lighter design, we are also expecting the iPad 5 to come with a faster processor, more RAM and updated cameras, as soon as we get some more information we will let you guys know.
