iPad mini 5 leak reveals better camera setup, headphone jack
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 last week, 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 on Monday.

The clear case sports a headphone port, the other typical functional ports of the iPad, and an additional mysterious cutout in the center of the right side. This may potentially be a feature of the case unrelated to the device it will protect; users will 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 center.
The iPad mini 4 currently starts at $399 (about P21,000) for 128 gigabytes. Several reports suggest that its successor will be about $100 (about P5,200) cheaper. JB
