Another portion of the Apple iPad Air has just gone viral. The new device will be allegedly called iPad Air Plus, which means that the company is keeping with the naming tradition started this year with the release of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. What’s even more interesting the upcoming Apple slate will feature an extra sharp 12.2-inch screen, which the company has been rumored to have been working on for some time. The giant display makes the device a perfect replacement for your laptop or notebook.
Upcoming iPad Air Plus could be powered by Apple’s new A9 processor
According to the leaked material the mentioned earlier screen will be an LCD display and the slate itself will measure 305.31 x 220.8 x 7mm, which is in line with previous rumors suggesting that Apple would release a bigger tablet. When we compare the dimensions of the upcoming iPad Air Plus and the current iPad Air model, it’s clearly visible that the rumored device won’t be only bigger but as well slightly thicker than the latest iPad Air 2 measuring 240×169.5×6.1 mm.
Going deeper into the specs sheet, the tablet is also said to be the first device powered by the Apple’s new A9 processor, and sport four speakers that are to provide the slate’s future users with an unprecedentedly rich sound experience, so no matter in which position you will put the device. The advanced speaker solution sounds far better that the current single speaker on the bottom of the device, don’t you think?
Since the schematics and specs list attached to the leaked material aren’t truly convincing, the rumor reliability begs for question. Why? If you asked someone to tell you what the new iPad device is likely to deliver us, you will get the same features as provided by the leak. Besides Apple confirmed works on a bigger tablet, simultaneously saying that it’s still a concept not a ready to launch product.
As for availability and pricing, the new iPad Plus’s mass production is reported to kick off sometime in the first or second quarter of 2015, and the release is expected to take place between next year’s April and June. As for pricing, well, it is definitely too early to speculate over the slate’s price tag details.
