According to this report, in addition to the Retina Display, the new tablet features a slimmer bezel design to allow a bigger viewing area. The tablet is also expected to provide better battery than its predecessor.

Meanwhile, the website quoting sources also said that Apple is considering an upgraded version of its 7.9 inch display based iPad Mini. The new version would have a narrower bezel, which will be close to smartphones in terms of thickness.

But Apple is still considering whether to adopt Retina display in the revamped iPad Mini or not, the report further added.
