When purported images of a space gray iPad 5(s aapl) leaked earlier this week, I wondered if we might see a gold tablet next. After all, we’ve already seen silver and space gray models, which are two of the three colors for the iPhone 5s. Now, just a few days later, images of a gold tablet have surfaced on Chinese tech site DoNews, though this time we are allegedly looking at a gold iPad mini 2.
Compared to previous leaks, these images seem pretty consistent with what we’ve seen so far. And a quick glance at the home button on the tablet reveals a design similar to Apple’s new Touch ID fingerprint sensor on the iPhone 5s.
Sonny Dickson, a solid source for Apple leaks, earlier today tweeted, “Touch ID is coming to the iPad Mini 2.” He also pointed to an A7 chip with 64-bit architecture and an M7 motion processor like the new iPhone 5s.
The iPad mini 2 is also expected to feature a retina display and see a release before the end of the year.
