Apple has yet to confirm that it is making an iPad mini but that hasn't stopped purported sightings of the new tablet including photos of its parts.
The pictures were taken by an unnamed source at a factory in China, according to UkrainianiPhone.com, a website that posts Apple news. They include a photo of the front panel, two shots of the back panel and a picture of LCD displays, although they may belong to a tablet other than the iPad mini, 9 to 5 Mac speculated.
The front panel, which you can see above, matches the look previous reports have suggested the iPad mini will take. It has slimmer bezel frames on its sides than the 9.7-inch iPad. UkrainianiPhone.com also lists the screen space at 7.85-inches, matching the size many have been predicting. You can also see a hole for a front camera.
A shot of the back panel, meanwhile, shows its exterior could be made of aluminum similar to the back of the black iPhone 5, and there also seems to be a hole for a back camera.
