iPad 5 photo reportedly leaks, shows thin iPad mini-like bezel

Is a mini bezel in the works for the iPad 5?
The iPad 5 is rumored to launch very soon, as early as this Fall, but the leaks don't show any sign of stopping.
Thin is in, for Apple
The leak says the tablet will now have two connectors instead of one, and also include the following change: "FFC (Flat Flexible Cable, like the iPad 2/3/4) to FPC (Flexible Printed Circuits, like the iPhone 4/5)" further showing that Apple is intent on creating a slimmed down tablet.
Macfixit also claims the display area is the same as the iPad Retina and that the ITO (Indium tin oxide) is exactly like the iPad mini.
If these leaks are true, we could see the iPad mini enlarged for meatier hands but with thinner bezels allowing for a nicer, bigger screen to better see the new iOS 7 on.
