A new leaker claiming to have information from inside Chinese factories shared a short video of a glossy "Apple Pencil 3."

Leaks surrounding a new Apple Pencil have been sparse so far, but a new video shows a glossy design with a flat side for inductive charging. This leaker known as "@ileakeer" on Twitter doesn't have much of a history or following, so it is difficult to determine if the video is real.

The design of the Apple Pencil shown in the video lines up with a photo shared by a well-known leaker called "Mr. White." The photo shared on Twitter in early March had an Apple pencil that seemed to have a flat side, thicker casing, and a glossy white finish.

The video in the first tweet could be the real thing, just a fabrication, or a third-party model. 9to5Mac first discovered the tweet and considered it a corroboration of Mr. White's earlier tweet.

Another social media post, this time on Chinese social media website Weibo, said that the "Apple Pencil 3" was nearly ready for release. With all of the leaks surrounding the product an imminent announcement is probable.

The "Spring Loaded" event is on April 20, and Apple is expected to release multiple products including a new Apple Pencil. The next iPad Pro may be announced with 5G, USB-4, and a mini LED display. Apple may also finally announce the "AirTags" tracking devices.
