We already know that Apple is getting ready to release a 10.5" iPad Pro, to sit between the already available 9.7 and 12.9 Pro's on the market, and we have a good guess that Apple will do it at its developer conference between June 5 and 9.
But we haven't seen the device in any shape or form, until today. Thanks to models given to case manufacturers (usually a credible place to get leaks) we get our first look at what the new iPad Pro will look like.
There's still a front-placed home-button-slash-TouchID-sensor, a camera lens in the top left corner along with an LED flash, and three microphones.

100% confirmed. Already in mass production. pic.twitter.com/5S9xNTLuZl
The leaked images come courtesy of concept and render artist Benjamin Geskin. He claims the models he obtained were given to case manufacturers and is already used for designing cases and accessories.
Below you could find a mockup he made from the models which serves the purpose of giving us a rough idea of the device's scale.

Finally Mr Geskin whipped up a render from the leaks to give us a relative idea of what to expect. The 10.5" iPad Pro looks very similar to the 9.7" iPad Pro though the side bezels on the left and right of the screen appear thinner.

Woah! I couldn't recognize it at first.
OMG... 10.5" iPad looks like... an iPad! Mind blown.
now its time for Apple to include some handy features in their pencil. It should have some built in features like screen shot, screen writing, web writing, crop..etc. Till now in iPads we still need a separate app to do such things. But I think these...
