Released in September 2015, Apple’s iPad Mini 4 can now be purchased with a significant discount of $130.
EBay has listed the iPad Mini 4 for $399.99. This variant comes with 16GB of native storage space and “Wi-Fi + 4G LTE” support. Apple’s online store, on the other hand, is selling the same variant for $529.
Interested buyers should, however note that, even though, the discounted iPad Mini 4 is a new device, it apparently comes in an “aftermarket box with aftermarket accessories.” Apart from the Wi-Fi usage, in case buyers would like to make use of the cellular (4G LTE) connectivity, Sprint mobile network connection is required. This slate doesn’t work with T-Mobile, AT&T or Verizon.
Buyers can choose from three color choices namely Space Gray, Silver and Gold. So far, 6 units of this iPad Mini 4 have been sold and the seller has 98.5 percent positive rating on eBay. The listing clearly says only limited quantities of this discounted model are available on discount.
As far as the specifications go, the iPad Mini 4 features a 7.9-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display, complemented by 1,536 x 2,048 pixels resolution. This display combination translates to a pixel density of 324 ppi.
Under the hood, a dual-core Typhoon (Apple A8) processor, running at 1.5 GHz, powers the device with 2GB of RAM backing it. On the software end, this tablet runs iOS 9 out of the box and it is upgradable to iOS 9.3.2. Other than the 16GB native storage space, there is no microSD card slot to facilitate expansion.
Camera-wise, the Mini 4 sports an 8-megapixel rear-facing sensor and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing shooter. This slate comes equipped with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, stereo speakers and a non-removable Li-Ion 5,124 mAh battery cell. This battery unit is apparently capable of offering up to 10 hours of battery life.
