Xiaomi’s 9.7 inch Mi Pad 3 With Windows 10 Leaks Before Official Release

Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi is looking forward to expanding its business, so they’re now targeting the tablet market, with their first Windows 10 device: the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, expected to make its debut on December 30.

Of course, a few images with the tablet, most likely promotional, already made the rounds online, giving us the chance to take a quick look at what to expect! As you can see, it’s a pretty big device, rocking a 9.7″ display, with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, the same values Apple’s iPad Pro 9.7 sports. However, it’s a bit thinner, measuring 6,08mm, compared to 6.1mm. Oh, and it’s worth mentioning that it has a full metal build, with dual speaker grilles on the bottom!

Spec-wise, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 is powered by a 7th Gen Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor, alongside 8 GB of RAM and 128 of 256GB of internal storage. Even though it’s a tablet, it has a pretty serious camera on the back, with a 16 MP sensor and dual-tone LED flash, while on the front, you’re looking at an 8 MP snapper. The battery has a capacity of 8290 mAh and it can be charged through a USB Type-C port. As mentioned above, the operating system is Microsoft’s Windows 10.

The tablet will have a starting price of CNY 1,999 ($289), for the 128GB variant, while the 256GB one will be available at CNY 2,299 ($332). Like expected, it comes with some additional accessories, like a keyboard dock, available at CNY 99($14).

Currently, we don’t know if Xiaomi is planning to release an Android version of this tablet as well, but considering that the old Mi Pad 2 did come in two OS versions, we’re not excluding this scenario. Eventually, if an Android-powered Mi Pad 3 is in the works, it should be released in the first months of 2017.
