Rumors abounded about problems sourcing the pixel-dense Retina display, slowing iPad Mini Retina production. That makes us extra-curious to get a look inside ours.
Our little Retina has an LG display, powered by a Parade DP675 LCD driver, similar to the DP655 found in the iPad Air.
Also present at the party, a TI TPS65143A and a pair of TI TPS65195, all likely LCD power supply ICs.
While "mini" tends to denote added cuteness with compromised functionality, this Mini packs a resolution of 2048 x 1536—just like the Air.
The same resolution in a smaller screen means enhanced pixel density—326 ppi on the Mini versus 264 ppi on the Air.
