As we get closer to Apple’s iPad Mini event next week, MacRumors has uncovered what it believes to be photos of the new device’s screen and battery.MacRumors discovered these photos via parts firm ETrade Supply

From this leak we’ve learned several key facts.

The first, LG is manufacturing the display. MacRumors also reveals that the text on the ribbon cable extending from the display is consistent with genuine Apple products.

It was also discovered that the display will have an aspect ratio of 4:3 the same as the full-sized iPad.

Besides the screen, ETrade Supply also posted new photos what appears to be the iPad mini’s battery. These photos are almost identical to the iPad battery that MacRumors discovered last week.

Here is the front of the LCD screen. We know it has an aspect ratio of 4:3.

Here is the Mini's battery. It's ~7-inches, which means its about the size of the whole iPad Mini. The battery is 4490mAh.

Another view of the 16.7Whr battery, which runs at 3.72V. The current, normal-sized iPad is 42.5 Whr, so this battery is much bigger and should last a long time.

Here a screen can be seen going through quality testing.

Take a closer look at the back of the display. The text towards the left identifies the screen manufacturer as LG.

The ribbon is in line with all other genuine Apple products, says parts supplier ETrade.

Now here's more about the iPad mini...
