It looks like our gut was right and we will at least be seeing the upcoming all metal Xiaomi Redmi 2 Pro along with an all new, all metal Xiaomi Mi Pad 2.
Just a day after posting the first official image of a gold Xiaomi phone with rear fingerprint scanner, Xiaomi has posted another teaser image this time showing an all metal tablet that is most likely the 2nd generation Xiaomi Mi Pad 2.

Earlier Mi Pad 2 rumours hinted that the tablet would feature an Intel chipset and that it might even boast a dual boot operating system that would allow the tablet to run either Android or Windows 10.
A benchmark on Geekbench had the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 running an Intel Atom x5-Z8500 quad-core processor, clocked at 2.24GHz, with 2GB of RAM and Android 5.1. Pricing is sure to be similar to the original plastic model at around 1499 Yuan, while a more upmarket version (hopefully with LTE) is rumoured to cost 1799 Yuan.
