London: Tech giant Apple is planning to launch a fifth generation tablet in March, a report has claimed.
According to Japanese tech blog Macotakara's inside source, the new iPad will look like the iPad Mini in design and detail and the dimensions of a slightly smaller iPad 2.
The new model, according to the blog, would feature the Retina display with the same resolution as the third and fourth generation iPads.
According to the Daily Mail, these theories have been backed up by Digitimes and come from a source known for its accuracy regarding insider information about Apple products.
If they do prove to be true, it would suggest that Apple is stepping up its game and keeping ahead of the curve within the world of tablets, the paper said.
The current iPad measures 9.50in (241.2 m) by 7.31in (185.7mm) by 0.37in (9.4 m) and so according to the reports, the new one would be almost as thin as the iPad Mini at around 0.3in (7mm), the paper added.
