It’s Monday again, and that means it’s a new week and time for more iPad Mini rumors. Today’s leak comes from Apple.pro, a Chinese blog. They claim to have turned up a set of rear shells for the iPad Mini on Weibo, the Chinese blogging site. You can see one at right.
As you can see, it’s a solid back with no spot for the camera. There’s 3 more photos after the break, and yes they are all that dark.
I’m going to go ahead and call these as fakes right now. Sure, they do say iPad, but these photos are not nearly as convincing as the ones which leaked back in June. Those photos revealed a cut out for a rear camera, the new smaller docking port, and a second cut out for what I assume will be a 4G antenna.
These photos show diddly squat. They’re too dark to show real detail – almost artistically so. They’re also too small, and that’s why I think someone was having fun with us. I’m not sure if it’s Apple or some Chinese techie, but something’s not right here.
And yes, I’m posting the anyway because they give me a chance to just make shit up. Maybe this shell doesn’t have a camera on the back because Apple’s new holocamera can see through the shell. Maybe they’ve replaced the camera with a sonar imager. Or maybe these shells are fake. Who knows.
