5-inch Retina Display Mini-iPad To Be Launched In 2013?

The latest rumour about Apple's future product comes from Macotakara which suggests that the Cupertino based company is developing a mysterious device with a five inch high resolution display.

The device is believed to have a resolution of 1,600 pixels by 960 pixels, or 1,280 by 960 pixels - and is expected to hit the market sometime in 2013.

According to reports, Apple is working with the Asian LCD suppliers to prepare the new product.

The device is most likely a next generation iPhone that is already the subject of Internet buzz, but tech writers suggest that it could be the long rumoured iPad mini, although the size would rather indicate an iPad Nano, or a larger iPod Touch.

When it comes to the next iPhone, rumours are conflicting. While some analysts are convinced that Apple will not change the current 3.5 display, other are willing to bet that the sixth generation iPhone will deliver a 4.6 inch Retina Display sometime this autumn.

In the iPad category, the rumours pointing to an iPad mini started since 2011, but the size was believed to be around 7 inches.
