After months of rumors, we may have just gotten our eyes (sort of) on Apple’s newest iPad Pro.

The device showed up in some CAD (computer-aided design) drawings that popped up online, per MacRumors, which pointed out that these things tend to leak out of China-based actories from time to time.

This shouldn’t surprise anyone, but it looks an awful lot like an iPad.

There are a couple of rumored major changes for the next-generation iPad Pro — and one of them is quite clear in the renders: a thinner, slimmer profile. The device’s dimensions suggest that there will be 11-inch and 13-inch models; both will be substantially thinner than the iPad Pro models currently on the market.

The 13-inch model, in particular, could be more than 1mm thinner than the current 12.9-inch version.

Another possible big change is the addition of an OLED display, something Apple has been using on smaller devices like iPhones for years, but has been slow to adopt for bigger displays. OLED panels can emanate deeper blacks and an overall richer image than what Apple has used on iPads before.

It may also lead to a price increase, but we’ll have to wait and see on that front. Given that the rumors point to a possible March announcement, we may not have to wait long.
