While Xiaomi is making a return to having tablets in its portfolio with the Pad 5, tablets remain exclusive to the Xiaomi brand for the longest time. That is set to change, as Redmi is also having its own set of tablets with the Redmi Pad.
Redmi’s first tablet offering comes with a 10.61-inch IPS display that has a 90hz refresh rate and symmetrical 4-side bezels and is powered by a Helio G99 processor that’s paired with up to 6GB RAM and up to 128GB internal storage. To those unfamiliar, the Helio G99 is an improvement over the Helio G96 as it uses a 6nm process and comes with higher-clocked Cortex-A76 cores at 2.2Ghz. That makes the Helio G99 at par with the popular Snapdragon 680 on paper.
Other features of the Redmi Pad include two 8-megapixel cameras–one in the front, and another at the back, a quad-speaker system with support for Hi-Res Audio and Dolby Atmos, and an 8000mAh battery with support for 18w charging–with a 22.5w charger included out of the box. When it comes to software updates, Xiaomi is committing to 3 years of security updates and 2 major Android updates for the Redmi Pad.
