Our old friend DigiTimes over in Taiwan can be a bit hit and miss with its predictions, almost as if supply chain sources might not always know everything about the plans of companies they provide their components to.
But you'd have to say this one is almost a no-brainer: Apple's second-generation iPad mini will come with a significantly higher display resolution than the underwhelming debut model.
Display quality isn't just about resolution, of course, but the iPad mini screen is probably the biggest disappointment on the iPad mini, and a lot of that is down to the non-Retina Display levels of pixel density.
Fear not, though, because the sequel to Apple's cut-size iOS slab will fix all that, according to DigiTimes' backlighting industry sources.
They're not willing to confirm it'll be a Retina-class resolution, which would mean 2058 x 1536 at the iPad mini's screen size, but say it's highly likely.
Another nugget of information to emerge is the claim that Apple will shave some weight off the next full-size 9.7in iPad by rejigging the tablet's innards to go from two LED light bars to just one.
