Launched in October last year, Apple s flagship iPad Pro (2018) tablet comes in two screen sizes 11-inch and 12.9-inch. While the slim bezels do help, the two variants of the newest iPad Pro aren t exactly compact. For those who want a truly portable iOS tablet, iPad Mini 4 seems just about perfect, but having come out in 2015, it s not exactly the best out there. However, that may change soon.

Some photos of an Apple tablet have popped up online, and they could very well be of the yet-to-be-launched iPad Mini 5. The images, shared by a user going by the name Mr. White on Twitter, show the back panel as well as some of the hardware of Apple s alleged compact tablet. If they are indeed the real deal, it seems the new iPad Mini 5 won t be that different from its predecessor, except for having a slightly redesigned cellular antenna.

However, that s not the interesting part. Even though the leaked photos show the tablet sans its front panel (and hence, the screen), the internal hardware seems to have a connection for the Home button. Also, as noted by Cult of Mac, the front-facing camera is there but there aren t any additional sensors visible. This further solidifies the fact that iPad Mini 5 may come with the good ol Touch ID, and not the funky Face ID feature that iPad Pro (2018) has.

That said, a report last month had claimed that Apple would be bringing the thin-bezel design and Face ID tech of iPad Pro (2018) to iPad Mini 5 later this year. It ll be interesting to see how Apple s newest compact tablet will turn out, whenever it launches this year.
