Rumor: AU Optronics is already developing Retina displays for the next iPad mini

The iPad mini is an incredible device, but its screen is undoubtedly its biggest weakness. Many expected that the smaller tablet would also come with the high resolution screens of their bigger brothers, but that is not what happened.

For those who crave a 7.9 ? Retina display, good news: the Chinese website DoNews said (Google Translate) that AU Optronics, one of the suppliers of the iPad mini screens currently sold, is already developing the high-resolution display that will equip the next generation of the device.

Rumors suggest that it will have the same 2048 × 1536 pixels as the newer 9.7 ? iPads, condensed in a space of 7.9 inches diagonally, increasing its density to 324 pixels per inch.

In another article, the MENAFN claimed that the displays will use IGZO and Gate IC on array (GOA) technologies in order to allow them to be thin and of high quality.
