Are these images of the next iPad? Sonny Dickson

Apple's next iPad appears to be on display in full view in a series of high-resolution photos leaked online.

Popping up on the Web site of known Apple leaker Sonny Dickson, the new photos display what appears to be the next-generation iPad in space gray, one of the colors available for the iPhone 5S.

The alleged images also show off the new thin design of the fifth-gen iPad, a trait borrowed from the iPad Mini. The full gallery displays the tablet from various angles, revealing the back casing, the sides, and even parts of the interior.

Previous images leaked by Dickson purported to show the iPad 5 in both silver and space gray . Add in a gold option, and that means the next iPad will offer the same colors available for the iPhone 5S. Photos released in August also hinted at the tablet's thinner iPad Mini-like design .

Dickson, who told Reuters that he receives the photos and videos from sources in China, has a pretty good track record at leaking accurate information and images. We should know if the latest photos prove true when Apple holds its iPad event later this month. That event could occur on Tuesday, October 22 , according to the latest scoop from AllThingsD.
