With Samsung, LG and the rest having stolen the news this January, very little information about Apple's expected products and lineup for this year has surfaced so far. Give or take a few leaks about the much talked about 4 inch iPhone from the manufacturer, the internet grapevine has been pretty much silent on Apple's products this year. Well thats about to change today as we have what seemed to be the first solid piece of evidence that the mythical 12.9 inch iPad Pro from the Cupertino manufacturer actually exists.
The french site NWE is back again today, after posting the Samsung Galaxy S6's aluminum unibody images yesterday. This time the French have for us what appears to be a sketch for the metal casing of the 12.9 inch iPad Pro. While we're cautioned to not take this image too seriously, Steve of NWE claims that the source of this information is reliable and has passed on accurate information in the past, including sketches of the iPhone 6.
The thickness of the hull of the iPad Pro is said to be between 6.9 and 7.5 mm by the source with the exact dimensions not being specified. Looking at the speaker grille in the sketch above, it would appear the iPad Pro will indeed have stereo sound, something which has been rumored before about the device. As to when Apple intends to launch the device, there is still no concrete information available.
Looking at the way things have developed, Apple is going to need to do something spectacular when it comes to processing power with the iPad Pro with Nvidia's launch of the Tegra X1 today. Nvidia's Tegra X1 ends up taking a vast lead to the Cupertino manufacturer's A8X SoC, a chip the latter claimed came with huge performance improvements with its launch with the iPad Air 2 last year. Stay tuned, we'll keep you updated.
