Xiaomi is launching the new affordable Redmi 4a in India today. Meanwhile, rumours rifle point that the company is also working Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 and Mi Pad 3 Pro models. The MyDrivers reports more details about the specifications of the upcoming Xiaomi tablet models.
The two new Mi Pad models have the Mi Pad 3 with 7.8-inch Retina display just like the first Mi Pad. Xiaomi will pack 4GB of RAM in this tablet and will offer it in 64GB and 128GB storage capacities. This model is expected to run Android 7.0 Nougat based MIUI out-of-the-box.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 Pro will feature a 9.7-inch display and will house 4GB of RAM. Even this model will sell in 64GB and 128GB storage capacities. As reported back in December, the Mi Pad 3 Pro might feature an Intel x7-Z8750 “Cherry Trail” mobile chipset and run the Windows 10 operating system. It’s quite clear that Xiaomi intends to pit the Mi Pad 3 Pro against the Apple iPad Pro line.
There’s no word on whether either of the Mi Pad models will feature a memory expansion slot. Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 is expected to be priced at 1299 Yuan (Rs 12,000 approximately) for the 64GB model while the 128GB cost 1599 (Rs 15,000 approximately). Meanwhile, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 Pro’s pricing starts at 1699 Yuan (Rs 16,000).
With a dearth of good tablets, the Mi Pad 3 and Mi Pad 3 Pro do have a potential to capture a sizable market in the India markets as well. However, Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 never made its way to India, so we are doubtful about the new tablets.
