The most recent iPad mini rendition was released in September 2015; over three years later, the next generation may finally be arriving.
According to a report by China Times released two weeks ago, the iPad mini 5 (the actual name of the device is not yet known) could be launched as soon as early 2019. Adding weight to that claim, Slash Leaks tweeted an image of a purported case for the device.

The clear case sports a headphone port, the other typical functional ports of the iPad, and an additional mysterious cutout in the centre of the right side. This may potentially be a feature of the case unrelated to the device it will protect; we’ll have to wait to find out.
The front has an oval cutout in the top left corner which suggests that the front camera may be accompanied by a proper flash. The image also shows that the rear microphone has been shifted to the centre.
The iPad mini 4 currently starts at US$399 (RM1,784 in Malaysia) for 128GB. Several reports suggest that its successor will be about US$100 (RM413) cheaper. – AFP Relaxnews
