Cupertino giant, Apple seems to already have started preparing for a new iPad mini. Tentatively called the iPad mini 6 Pro for now due to a probable 120Hz ProMotion display being developed by Samsung. As per a Korean news forum Clien.net (via @FronTron), Samsung’s display division has allegedly sent a sample to Apple for testing.
An 8.3″ 120Hz display panel manufactured by Samsung will supposedly be employed in the upcoming new iPad mini iteration. Having said that, upon launch, we saw the current iPad mini 6 exhibit jelly scrolling during an iFixit teardown. For starters, jelly scrolling is a jelly-like effect that occurs where one half of the display refreshes slower than the other. A higher refresh rate display aims to resolve this issue.

Coming back to the rumored iPad mini 6 Pro or whatever, the memory onboard is expected to be a 4GB unit. Storage capacity will start from 128GB and the processing department will be managed by the A15 Bionic supposedly clocked at 3.23GHz.
iPad mini 6 Pro (tentative name)
Samsung Display has shipped an 8.3x" 120Hz display sample to Apple.
The model starts from a 128GB variant with 4GB of RAM, and a 3.23GHz A15.
The price is slightly higher than the mini 6, however, it isn't that burdening.https://t.co/SjtlLESeJq

The speculation points to a slight increase in price for the upcoming new iPad mini 6 120Hz model over the current gen.
Anyways, let’s take all of the above information with a pinch of salt for now considering the iPad mini 6 was released recently. A possible next-generation model may not arrive next year or even take a couple of years for that matter.
