Leaked photos of next-gen iPad bezel reinforce reports of major redesign

iPad 5 Photos Leak

Photos of what is claimed to be the front glass and bezel assembly from Apple’s (AAPL) fifth-generation iPad leaked on Wednesday, reinforcing earlier reports of a major upcoming redesign. An image of the new iPad’s purported rear shell was published this past January, showing a redesigned case that closely resembles the iPad mini. Now, French blog has photos of what it claims to be the new iPad’s front bezel and glass display cover. While their authenticity is not guaranteed, the photos show a new thinner bezel that aligns with earlier reports suggesting the new iPad will have a smaller overall footprint while maintaining the same 9.7-inch display size. An additional photo of the purported fifth-generation iPad bezel follows below.
