According to new rumours, Samsung Display is currently supplying 8.3-inch panels to Apple for a new iPad mini. While IPS like the iPad mini 6, these panels are also 120 Hz, which could minimise the current tablet's 'jelly scrolling' problem.

Apple only unveiled the iPad mini 6 in September, but there are already rumours about another model. The iPad mini 6 has a different design from its predecessors, with the compact tablet bearing a closer resemblance to the iPad Air 4 than the iPad mini 5. Similarly, the iPad mini 6 supports the Apple Pencil 2, which it can recharge wirelessly from the side of its chassis.

Now, a report from Taiwan claims that Samsung Display is already supplying panels to Apple for another iPad mini model. Reputedly, this tablet will have an 8.3-inch display, matching the current model. However, the display will also operate at 120 Hz, double the refresh rate of the iPad mini 6 and the iPad Air 4. In fact, Apple has only brought ProMotion technology to its 'Pro' devices so far, such as the new MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16.

Correspondingly, Apple is tipped to launch the tablet as the iPad mini 6 Pro. Presumably, doubling the refresh rate will help reduce the jelly scroll effect that some people have noticed occurring on the iPad mini 6. Additionally, the iPad mini 6 Pro is thought to feature an A15 Bionic SoC, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash storage.

In essence, the iPad mini 6 Pro will share much of its hardware with the iPhone 13 Pro series. Unfortunately, there is no word on a release date for the tablet, yet.
