iPad Mini 4 rumors: Tablet reportedly has better color accuracy compared to iPhones, predecessors


The latest addition to Apple’s tablet series iPad Mini 4 has reportedly been receiving good reviews from tech enthusiasts when it comes to its display and other features.

According to Motley Fool, a test done by DisplayMate revealed that the tablet is more accurate in rendering colors compared to the flagship smartphone devices iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. In terms of absolute color accuracy, the iPad Mini 4 is said to have lower average color error as well as lower maximum error.

The report added that other comparisons made also showed that the fourth generation beat the displays found in both iPad Air 2 and the brand-new iPad Pro. It also has better adequate color gamut rating, color saturation,and reflectance.

For the last component, the iPad Mini 4 clocked two percent reflectance which is better than the five to six and a half percent that previous models give. This means that images have better contrasts when displayed on the device.

When it comes to the numbers of products sold in the market, around 92,500 units had been reportedly purchased in China during the first four weeks after its introduction which is better than the 49,000 units sold when the iPad Pro was launched. However, it failed to match the staggering record of 557,500 units of iPad Air 2 during the same amount of time.

iPad Mini 4 is currently available across different regions. Consumers get to choose between three variants – 16GB, 64GB, or 128GB. The models are priced at $399, $499 and $599, respectively.

The device features 7.9-inch screen display at 2048×1536 pixel resolution and 326 pixels per inch density. The device measures 0.13 inches taller than the iPad Mini 3 and 0.05 inches thinner. It also has LED backlit display and fingerprint sensor for secured payment in Apple Pay. Under the hood, it is powered by an A8 chip.
