Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 – new cheap tablet to upgrade the first Mi Pad
Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is a new tablet coming from this Chinese manufacturer, and it was shown off for the first time earlier this week, along with the new Xiaomi Redmi Note 3. This is an upgrade from the previous Mi Pad device, a 7.9-inch tablet launched a while back.
What makes Mi Pad 2 so special? Well, for starters, its price! This tablet will sell for $156 in China, where it is available at the moment. It looks pretty good for a cheap Android tablet, but it has nothing out of the ordinary aesthetically speaking. There is one thing though, you can upgrade the storage space from 16GB to 64GB (this model sells for $203) and this model will also let you choose between the Android OS variant and the Windows 10 one. Although many may want to try the Windows 10 interface in order to be able to stream Xbox One games from the living room, most still prefer Google’s mobile alternative because of its functionality (and lack of keyboards or styluses could factor in).
Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 specs:
- 7.9-inch 1536 x 2048p display
- quad-core Intel Atom X5-Z8500 processor
- 2 GB RAM
- 16/ 64 GB storage with microSD slot
- Android OS/ Optional Windows 10; with MIUI 7
- 8 MP primary camera
- 5MP secondary camera
- 6190 mAh battery.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 will be available in dark grey and champagne gold color variants. We have no info on when the tablet will be available in the western world yet.
