Buyers of the next iPad Mini may be able to choose gold or space gray and tap into a Touch ID fingerprint sensor. At least, that's the scoop based on the latest alleged images leaked online.

A photo claiming to be that of a gold iPad Mini with the Touch ID has surfaced on Chinese tech site DoNews. The photo shows the back of an iPad tinged gold.

Another photo from known leaker Sonny Dickson purports to reveal an iPad Mini in the space gray color. Dickson's photo follows an image posted last week by French tech site NowhereElse allegedly displaying a space gray Mini. A tweet from Dickson claims that the new Mini will be offered in space gray, gold, and silver.

Dickson's been busy this week leaking alleged photos of Apple products. On Wednesday, he posted images of iPad 5 units in both space gray and silver. Another tweet cites sources who reportedly told him that the iPad Mini 2 will come with 1GB of memory, while the iPad 5 will have 2GB.

Assuming these reports and photos are legitimate, then both of the upcoming new iPads will likely adopt the same three colors available for the iPhone 5S.

Apple is expected to take the wraps off its next-generation iPads in October.
