Apple to adopt slim bezel display for iPad mini

If there ever is an iPad mini


Apple is apparently eyeing slim bezel displays for its rumoured 7.85-inch iPad. The idea makes sense, as tiny bezels could enable designers to fit a spacious screen in the 7-inch form factor.

The 7.85-inch iPad probably won’t feature a Retina-class display like its big brother and Digitimes reckons Apple will use IPS/FFS panels from LG Display and AU Optronics.

Of course, anything said about the 7-inch iPad, or iPad mini is highly speculative to say the least. If anything, Apple is as secretive as North Korean communists and it is already selling the old iPad 2 at $399, which does not leave much room for a smaller, cheaper version.

However, it would make sense for Apple to wade into the 7-inch market, which is currently the only bastion left for Android tablets. Priced at $249 to $299, the tiny iPad could make life miserable for quite a few Android vendors and put a dent in Amazon’s Kindle Fire plans.
