Xiaomi unveiled the powerful Mi Pad 2 tablet, alongside the Redmi Note 3 smartphone, very recently. The new tablet has apparently made a silent visit to the AnTuTu benchmark testing site showcasing its prowess.
The standout aspect of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 slate is the choice of OS. One of the variants runs on Android OS, while the other utilizes Windows 10. The Android variant was reportedly spotted on the AnTuTu benchmark site. This model features a 7.9-inch display, bundled with 2,048 x 1,536 pixels screen resolution. Under the hood, a quad-core Intel Atom X5-Z8500 processor powers the device, which is backed by 2 GB of RAM.
Gizmo China citing a Weibo update said, the device scored a total of 85,101 points. It is worth noting that the powerful Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Meizu Pro 5 and Huawei Mate 8 scored in the similar range on AnTuTu. Technically, this score indicates that the device is guaranteed to provide “fast and flawless” performance.
Speaking of price, in China, the 16 GB variant of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 will set the buyers back by an equivalent of $156. The 64 GB model can be purchased for $203 equivalent, Phone Arena noted.
At this point in time, the device is available only in China and several other Asian countries. However, third-party vendors bring international variants to the U.S. almost immediately after the launch. Following the trend, GearBest is now taking preorders for the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 with 64 GB storage for $248.96, specific to the Windows 10 variant. As evident, the price is relatively high when compared to China. In any case, readers can purchase this device in Champagne or Silver hue.
Gear Best also said that potential buyers can avail free shipping service in the U.S. Upon placing an order, the device will apparently reach within three to five days. Readers should, however, note that the sale ends on Dec. 20.
