New iPad Mini 2 video shows second-generation enclosure - Jason O'Grady

A second new video by YouTube user unboxtherapy claims to show an assembled iPad mini 2 enclosure and compares it to the current generation iPad mini.

Unlike the iPad 5 leak, which shows a dramatically narrower and boxier industrial design, the iPad mini 2 enclosure in the video looks almost identical to the iPad mini 1. In fact, every dimension is identical to the iPad mini 1. 

Many people, including Luke in the video, believe that the new iPad mini 2 will ship with a Retina display to better compete with the new high-res Nexus 7 tablet, but it's impossible to confirm that based on the parts in the new video.

Here's the video, so you can judge for yourself:
