WSJ: Fifth-Generation iPad to Share the Same Thin Touch Sensor as the iPad mini

The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple’s upcoming fifth-generation iPad will use the same thin touch sensor that was introduced last year in the iPad mini.

The anticipated details on Apple’s next iPad reported on Monday by The Wall Street Journal are in line with earlier rumors claiming the device will sport the same “GF2” screen technology. That’s expected to help allow the device to be thinner and lighter than its predecessors.

The new GF2 screen will help reduce power consumption, which should allow Apple to use a smaller battery, reducing the size and weight of the new tablet.

Monday’s report cited the ever-popular “people with knowledge of the matter” for the information.

One indication that the report could be correct: The company behind the technology, Nitto Denko Corp., plans to double its capacity for touch sensors by the end of the fiscal year.

The next full-sized iPad is also expected to borrow other elements of the iPad mini’s design, such as a thinner side bezel, which would allow reduction of the overall size of the device, while retaining its 9.7-inch display. Stereo speakers, like those included on the iPad mini, could also be part of the new design.

It was reported earlier today that Apple will hold an event on September 10th. However, it is unknown if the company will introduce a redesigned full-size iPad at that time.
