This handset was initially intended to feature an advanced fingerprint sensor on a back panel, right in the place where the Motorola logo now sits. Moreover, first prototypes of the device featured a sensor capable of recognizing owner's fingerprints. However, since Apple purchased AuthenTec and the rights for all its technologies, Google decided to opt out from the sensor.

Will iPad mini lack Retina displays?



It is rumored that Apple is testing a new iPad Mini with an A6 processor but without a Retina display. It is proved by a hidden file that lists all supported iOS 7 devices.

According to this information, Apple will be launching three new iPad mini models: iPad “2,8,” iPad “2,9,” and iPad “2,10.” The devices ill be called J75, J76, and J77 respectively. One of the three models will support only WiFi connection, while two others will be cellular-compatible. (just like the current iPad minis). The internal nomenclature for these iPads follows the current iPad minis, which are iPad “2,5,” iPad “2,6,” and iPad “2,7.”

The new iPad minis will boast a s5l8950x processor. It has the same A6 chip as current iPhone 5. It is a shame that the coming iPads minis will lack "@2x" hooks to higher resolution images. Thus it may be assumed that they will not have a Retina display.
