Xiaomi Mi Pad Successor Comes Sporting Android; Windows 10 Edition on Its Way

November 25, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

The November 24 event by Xiaomi was highly speculated to unveil the Redmi Note 2 Pro device. The device arrived but with a different name, Redmi Note 3. Besides, Xiaomi also presented their new tablet successor to the Mi Pad.

The event itself highlighted the all-metallic approach of Xiaomi, which was carried over to the tablet device as well.

The all metallic body has also given a fresh look to the Mi Pad 2, which comes 18 percent thinner and 38g lighter than the previous model.


The screen-size measures 7.9-inches diagonally, and is powered by a display of 2048×1536 pixels. Similar to the Redmi Note 3, the Mi Pad 2 will also be arriving in two different storage variants.

If it was 16 and 32 GB for the smartphone, Xiaomi’s tablet successor will feature 32GB and 64GB variants.

However, the RAM will remain unchanged for both the variants, and will feature 2GB RAM. It will be coupled with Intel’s Atom processor with its quad-core chips clocked at 2.24GHz. An 8MP sensor forms the rear-cam segment of the device, while the front is fitted with a 5MP sensor.

Under the hood is a 6,190mAh capacity battery that can keep Mi Pad 2 running for over 10hours with continuous video playback. It will also have support for Type-C USB connectivity.

Currently, Xiaomi has unveiled the Mi Pad 2 device with Android OS onboard. However, they have revealed that a Windows 10 powered Mi Pad 2 might get kick started by the month of December.

This will also be the first time where a Xiaomi device will run an OS from Microsoft. The desire here could be to take on the tablet segment by introducing broader range of devices.

As for the current Android version, it will be available on the markets at RMB 999 for 32GB version, and RMB 1299 for the 64GB version. Both versions will be available in the usual shade of Dark Grey, and a newly introduced shade of Champagne Gold.
