About Xiaomi Tablets
Xiaomi, which happens to be a Chinese electronics maker, is also often dubbed as the ‘Apple of China’. This is primarily due to the soft resemblance that its devices bear with Apple’s products. In fact, at present, Xiaomi happens to China’s largest smartphone vendor and also ranks fourth in the world.
History of Xiaomi tablets
Although Xiaomi was founded in 2010, it has risen abruptly in its short time in the electronics industry. Many of the company’s products can be found across markets in Asia and has even captured markets in the western nations.
Xiaomi’s tablet series, Mi Pad, isn’t much of a big list. In fact, there are only two devices in the series so far. The first product was launched in 2014 and simply called the Mi Pad. Its iteration, the Mi Pad 2 is the latest to be released. The Mi Pad 2 also has a Windows version.
Popularity in India
India has been one of those hottest markets for Xiaomi, besides a number of others in Asia. In fact, Xiaomi even has an assembling unit/factory in India, which is in partnership with Foxconn.
The company became largely popularly with the launch of its flagship killer, the Mi 3. This was followed by a cheaper model, the Redmi 1S, which was also very popular. Since then, the company has launched a number of other devices, including its tablets that have seen high demand. Also, Xiaomi has popularized the flash sale model in India, along with Flipkart. However, it presently sells phones through its own store, other online stores and retail outlets as well.
Design of Xiaomi tablets
When it comes to the overall look of the Mi Pads, they resemble that of the iPad Mini. However, much of its build material is plastic that makes it pretty glossy in nature. It is available in an all white color back panel that is not removable. As for the Mi Pad 2 though, there are two color options, namely gold and gray. The front face is black and carries the Mi logo.
The screen measures 7.9 inches and bears a resolution of 2048x1536 pixels. The screen features IPS LCD technology. Just below the screen are three capacitive backlit buttons, which carry out menu, home and back functions.
The Mi Pads pack a whole range of features. They are powered by quad-core NVIDIA Tegra / Intel Atom processors, and have 2GB of primary memory. Internal storage option is 16GB and an additional micro-SD card slot allows for expansion as well.
Both Xiaomi tablets feature an 8MP front camera, along with a 2MP front camera. However, there is no LED flash accompanying these cameras.
These tablets run on Android and come with the MIUI interface. MIUI is pretty rich and has also proven to be fairly popular among users. The Mi Pad 2 also has a Windows version of the tablet, which basically runs on Windows 10 instead of Android.
When it comes to connectivity, Xiaomi’s tablets rely on Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi Direct and micro USB. None of the tablets support SIM card functionality and thus, one cannot make network calls. GPS support is also missing in these tablets. A 3.5mm universal headphone jack is present though.
In addition to these, Mi Pad’s have the common sensors (accelerometer, compass, gyroscope, proximity sensor) that are required for functioning. The battery backup is also great, with a Li-ion battery higher than 6100mAh provided.
Xiaomi Tablet News
Xiaomi has recently launched the second iteration in its Mi Pad series. It is called the Mi Pad 2 and closely resembles its predecessor.

Also, it features two different colors, dark gray and champagne gold, unlike the case with the Mi Pad.
