Rumors are suggesting that Apple will launch a full-sized iPad  which sports a thinner bezel at the end of 2013, and some leaked images what seems to be the front bezel for the next-gen iPad may have confirmed these speculations.

The leaked images of the iPad bezel reveal that the side edges are narrower than the current iPad models.  Shaving off some of the bezel leads many to believe that the iPad 5 may be smaller in dimension while retaining the 9.7-inch display.  Engineers at Apple have also tweaked iOS so that accidental touch inputs on the sides of the iPads won’t register as actions or gestures—a software modification to accommodate the new hardware design.
