There seems to be no end in sight when it comes to rumors and speculations about major tech companies' upcoming devices. The purported iPad Mini 4 of Apple is one of these gadgets currently in the rumor mill.

According to a The Christian Post, the alleged iPad Mini 4 will be an upgraded version of its predecessor. The iPad Mini 3 generally gained good reviews from users, but the tablet faced competition against other similar gadgets produced by giant tech corporations.

An example of which is Samsung's Galaxy Tab series, which, as stated by The Inquisitr, "are boosted by Google and its array of apps." Other tablets, meanwhile, can be bought at a cheaper price than the iPad Mini 3.

Though improved in battery life and display, the iPad Mini 3 bears close resemblance to its predecessor when it comes to the design. Given that Apple "seemed to follow the 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' approach," the iPad Mini 4 could have the same fate, The Inquisitr wrote.

Twitter user OnLeaks posted a series of photos and a video claiming to be the housing of the iPad Mini 4. You can check out the set of leaked images on Deccan Chronicle.

According to Tech Times, the iPad Mini 4 will have a slimmer design and will pack a 64-bit A8X processor, which allows users to work on the best possible speed without the risk of crashing while handling several tasks.

Based on OnLeaks' Twitter posts, the lock/mute switch appears to have been traded for a microphone hole and "its speaker grill now has a single row of larger cutouts like the iPad Air 2 instead of the smaller double row of speakers holes found on the iPad Mini 3," the news site added. The rumored tablet's aluminum case is also rumored to be thinner than the latest iPad Mini out in the market.

If we followed Apple's pattern in releasing their products, consumers might be getting the iPad Mini 4 this coming October or November, Mac World speculated. A separate report from The Inquisitr said that the upcoming gadget's screen will boast a RAM capacity of 2GB and a 7.9-inch display screen. The iPad Mini 3 has up to 128 GB in capacity.

Christian Today added that the iPad Mini 4 is rumored to be equipped with an 802.11ac Wi-Fi support, which is up to 1733 mbps of wireless Internet connection that can work on a 5 GHz frequency band.

There are no confirmed reports about the rumored tablet's price yet, although The Inquisitr noted that it could be priced lower than the iPad Mini 3.

These are all rumors for now and an official statement from Apple is yet to be announced.
