After so many conflicting reports, there's another one to add to the pile of iPad mini news. This time the Wall Street Journal reports that Apple suppliers are preparing their production lines to pump out a refreshed iPad mini with a Retina display.
The refreshed, high-resolution iPad mini will reportedly make it to retail shelves later this year according to "people familiar with the matter." These same sources state that Apple have been working with LG, Sharp and major competitor Samsung to source high-resolution screens for the refreshed iPad mini.
The sources add that Apple won't change from the 7.9-inch display, but will instead cram more pixels into the same space. The WSJ had an interesting bit in their piece that stated Apple were wanting to only use screens from LG and Sharp, but in order to get their demand requirements met, they had to knock on Samsung's door.
