The rumored iPad mini will reportedly launch this October with a 7.85-inch display. Bloomberg has cited four separate sources "familiar with the plans" for the date and screen size. It says that the new, smaller, displays will be manufactured by both LG Display and AU Optronics. Its sources also report that two companies, TPK Holding and Foxconn subsidiary Yeh Cheng, will supply the lamination coating for the device.
There's no indication of what resolution the iPad mini's display will be, but Bloomberg's report lines up with previous rumors of a 7.85-inch tablet. Apple is expected to hold a press event on September 12th to announce the rumored "iPhone 5," and if Bloomberg's October prediction is true, it's likely that we'll hear something about the iPad mini at the same time.
