This rumor specifically says that the iPad mini will be coming with a Retina display capable of a resolution of 2048x1536. To push all those pixels, the iPad mini will need a more powerful processor. According to the rumor, it will the Apple A6X processor. The back camera is also said to be getting an upgrade to 8MP and the front camera to 2MP.

The thickness is expected to increase slightly to make room for a larger battery to power these higher-spec'd parts. As with all rumors, take this with a grain of salt.
