The specs of the 9.7-inch iPad Pro are pretty much in line with those of the larger 12.9-inch model. That means it will be powered by the A9X chipset, carry 4GB of RAM, feature quad-speakers and support both the Apple Pencil and the Smart Keyboard. But there is one area where it might surpass the original iPad Pro, and that is with the rear camera.
While the original iPad Pro comes with an 8MP rear-facing camera, the latest speculation has the 9.7-inch variant equipped with a 12MP rear camera, similar to the rear snapper on the Apple iPhone 6s. The camera will shoot 4K video, just like the rear-camera on that handset.
On the 21st of this month, not only is Apple expected to unveil the 9.7-inch iPad Pro, it also is reportedly set to unleash the new 4-inch Apple iPhone SE and a refresh version of the Apple Watch. The media event is supposed to take place at Apple's Town Hall. So far, Apple has yet to send out invitations, but with less than three weeks until the rumored event takes place, this should happen fairly soon.
