Next-generation iPad mini might feature 120Hz ProMotion display and A15 Bionic chip

A leak shared on a Korean forum claims that the next-generation iPad mini will feature the advanced 120Hz ProMotion display and more. Recently, Apple introduced the 120Hz higher refresh rate in iPhone 13 Pro and 2021 MacBook Pro models.

Apple launched the iPad mini 6 in September in an all-new flat edge-to-edge design and features A15 Bionic chip, 60Hz display, USB-C port, Apple Pencil 2, improved front, and rear cameras, and power button TouchID and more. However, several users have reported jelly scrolling issues that the company might fix in the next-generation model.

120Hz refresh rate in the new iPad mini could resolve the  jelly scrolling issue on the iPad mini 6

The latest iPad mini 6 is equipped with an LCD panel that refreshes at 60Hz. But some users complained that when used in portrait mode, the display shows a jelly-like scrolling effect which means that half of the screen refreshes faster than the other half. However, this issue is not experienced on iPad 9, iPad Air, and 120Hz ProMotion iPad Pro models.

120Hz ProMotion tech automatically adjusts the refresh rate of the display to match the motion of onscreen content to save battery and make tasks more responsive and fluid. Therefore, a higher refresh rate might resolve the issue altogether. @Chirashi leaker wrote that;

It is from Taiwan. It is said that Samsung Display is currently supplying samples.

It is said that an 8.3-inch class 120Hz display sample has been delivered to Apple. However, the name “Pro” is irrelevant.

Starting with display 120hz support and 128GB version. Although the price is higher than the currently released iPad mini 6, it is said to form an affordable price range. 

The RAM is also said to be 4GB. The AP clock is only slightly higher, so there is no big difference. It is said that it is being tested with the A15 3.23Ghz.

It is also mentioned that the new model will retain the same size form and A15 Bionic processor as the current iPad mini 6 model.
