The tablet that was expected to be iPad Air 3 will be a new Pro slate, namely iPad Pro 9.7, one of its most interesting specs being the 4K video-capable camera on the back.

When hearing that the 12.9-inch iPad Pro will soon get a 9.7-inch sibling, nobody thought the smaller slate would come out with some improvements, especially in the camera department. Obviously, Apple still has to confirm this, but it looks like the smaller iPad Pro will launch packing a much better camera than its 12.9-inch predecessor.

According to 9to5Mac's sources, "internal prototypes of the smaller model include a 12 megapixel rear camera comparable to the sensor in the iPhone 6s." On the other hand, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro currently on the market has a main camera with just 8 MP. The upcoming 9.7-inch iPad is expected to feature a frontal FaceTime HD camera while the main image snapper will be capable of recording 4K video footage.

The rest of the features are the same that Apple's current iPad Pro model offers - the A9X SoC, Apple Pencil-compatible screen, Smart Connector, quad speakers, an optimized Smart Keyboard cover. Compared to the iPad Air 2, the iPad Pro 9.7 should also pack an improved display. Its alleged launch date remains the same - March 21st, when it is expected to come out next to the 4-inch iPhone SE and new Apple Watch models.
