WSJ: Next-gen iPad mini will have Retina display after all

iPad Mini 2 Retina Display

We’ve heard a lot of conflicting reports about whether Apple’s next-generation iPad mini will or won’t have a Retina display but The Wall Street Journal now tells us that the device will come with a Retina display and will likely launch in the holiday quarter. Citing unnamed sources, the Journal says that “Apple’s suppliers are gearing up for mass production of a new iPad mini in the fourth quarter that will likely feature a high-resolution screen from Samsung,” LG Display and Sharp. This means that Apple has indeed ditched AU Optronics as a supplier after experiencing component shortages last year with the original iPad mini.
