It is also believed to be boasting Retina Display with 3D Touch. An IP68 certification is also one of the anticipated features of the upcoming iPad Mini making it water and dust proof.
Under its chassis, one might find an A9 processor and M9 motion co-processor along with 32GB and 128GB variety of storages. The iPad Mini 5 might come outside the box pre-installed with iOS 10. Lastly, it is expected that the upcoming iPad mini-series will be fortified with Apple Pencil and Apple might also ditched the headphone port.
If the iPad Air 3 and iPad Mini 5 will be launched in March, it's just a matter of two months waiting. But then, as Apple hasn't confirmed that information yet, it should be taken with a grain of salt.
