It probably won’t be this small

Even though the third-generation iPad was announced less than a week ago, the iPad rumor mills have not slowed down a bit. The latest whispers come from The Korea Times, which quoted an unnamed Samsung official and claimed Apple will release a smaller iPad by the end of this year with Samsung displays.

The choice of Samsung seems possible, because we learned that Samsung is currently the only supplier of iPad Retina displays (as well as other components like the new A5X processor) after other manufacturers failed to meet Apple’s quality standards.

However, we are not entirely certain this project is going to get the green light. Recent reports said that such a mini iPad would have a diminished bezel more like a phone and less like a tablet.

Do you think Apple will make a 7.85-inch tablet? Take our poll below.
