We already assume Apple’s iPad mini 2 will offer a Retina Display, that much is basically a given at this point. However, a new report from My Drivers suggests that the tiny tablet will also offer a screen with a 324ppi. That’s much, much sharper than the 2048 x 1536-pixel Retina screen on the current fourth-generation iPad, the sharpest iPad to date. That tablet, by comparison, has a 264ppi.
My Drivers doesn’t provide much more information on the screen, other than that it will also offer a 2048 x 1536-pixel resolution. Combine that with the smaller 7.9-inch display, and the pixel density makes sense. One thing is for sure: watching movies, reading text and browsing the web will certainly be a much more enjoyable experience with a display that’s even just a hair sharper than the current iPad mini screen.
The iPad mini 2 is expected during the third quarter of this year, according to current rumors.
