Just when you thought that the leaked photos of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C are not enough, we take a break from discussing about the usual devices, and this time we have a purported iPad mini 2 shell’s photos.

Sonny Dickson shows off what he claims to be the back shell of the iPad mini 2. The shell shows off a silver finish with an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) logo in the center. There appears to be a spot for a rear camera, something that the iPad mini doesn’t come with. If we look closely then there are also holes for the volume rocker buttons.

“Just when you thought we were already up to our necks in iPhone part leaks, we’ve just gotten our hands on the iPad Mini 2 Shell,” says Sonny before releasing the photos.

The iPad mini 2 is expected to retain the same size of display

The rear panel is kept mostly in line with the original iPad mini. There are no major design differences, and as we know, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) follows the same design structure many times. The iPad mini 2 is expected to retain the same size of display, but it will come with Retina Display, something that mini users were always demanding. Apart from that, it would have a powerful processor and rear camera.

The release date of iPad mini 2 is unknown at this time

The release date of iPad mini 2 is unknown at this time, though as per speculation, it could be before the holiday season of this year. Mostly, the mini tablet would be launching during the month of October, after twelve months from the launch of the original iPad mini.

For now, we’ve laid our eyes on the September 10th event, in which, we believe that Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will be launching the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C.
