Is this the new design of the 2021 iPad Pro refresh?

Ipad Mini 5 Concept

After all, the fifth-generation iPad mini was released in early 2019 alongside the prior iPad Air, with virtually identical specs - it was basically just a smaller version that still fit into the mid-tier of Apple's iPad lineup, rather than the entry-level models that its predecessors had been.

Apple is widely expected to announce two new iPad Pro models in both 11-inch and 12.9-inch sizes.

The design of Apple's next-generation iPad Pro has supposedly been leaked by CAD images shared by Indian research site MySmartPrice, which suggest the upcoming 2021 model will largely resemble the current iPad Pro without any major design changes.

One of the more recent rumors about the iPad Pro 2021 design comes from the Japanese website Mac Otakara, which claimed that there would only be small changes to expect.

Though there is no official news about the actual price of iPad Pro 2021. The name itself gives away the screen size. The layout is also said to be the same, including a main camera, an ultra-wide shooter and a leader sensor. The back camera module will have a squared design that would feature a dual read setup with LED flash, a LiDAR sensor, and a microphone like its predecessor. The iPad Pro 11 (2021) will continue to be charged by a USB-C cable, and the speaker grilles, as reported earlier, have indeed shrunk in size. There is no word on the inclusion of Touch ID inside the power button like the Apple iPad Air 2020.
