Apple’s New iPad Pro is said to be between 10 and 10.5 inches

A reliable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said in a statement that Apple is planning to introduce three iPads in 2017: a 12.9 inch iPad Pro and a lower cost 9.7 inch iPad alongside a brand new bezel free,  mid sized model between 10-10.5 inches.

We note the 12.9″ model will be the second generation of the existing 12.9″ iPad Pro, the 10-10.5″ model will be the high-end model equipped with a narrow bezel design, and the 9.7″ model will be the low-priced option. The former two models will have an A10X chip manufactured by TSMC (2330 TT, NT$183.5, N), while the latter comes with an A9 chip made by Samsung LSI. Although we estimate iPad shipments in 2017 will drop again YoY to 35-37mn units, we except the decline to narrow to 10% from 2016’s roughly 20%, given that the 10-10.5″ model may see more demand from commercial/enterprises and tender markets, while the low-priced 9.7″ model may have a greater shipment contribution and likely account for 50-60% of total shipments of new iPad’s.
