Xiaomi published a picture of the Mi Pad 2 and no one noticed


Xiaomi produce a lot of the products than just phones, and the recently announced car charging adapter is just another.

While that may not sound like the most interesting gadget on earth, it does bring to the fore another Xiaomi device that you’re interested in — the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2.

Found on the listing of the car charging adapter is a picture of the USB Type-C powered Xiaomi Mi Pad 2. You can take a look at the listing here, and find the picture below.

While it’s far from substantial, this picture does give you an idea of how the Mi Pad 2 will look like on the front. Xiaomi bosses recently posted a picture of the rear of the Mi Pad 2, which looks like an all-metal kind of an area.

The micro USB to USB Type-C adapter being used in the picture is an interesting addition too, a cheeky addition by Xiaomi to remind you that the tablet will have a USB Type-C port.

In related news, Xiaomi announced they’ll be launching a revamped budget phone in the form of the Redmi Note 3 on the 24th this month. Looks like it’s going to be an all-metal affair for Xiaomi this month!

Thanks for the tip, Sai!

    Shame miui for tablets is horrendous

        Why is this a problem? Name one mass market Android tablet currently shipping with Marshmallow.

          Not to mention that Lollipop was an absolute disaster on phones and even worse on tablets.

            I dunno what phones or tablets your talking about but lollipop runs fine on my devices

              Lollipop is fine now thanks to all the updates and fixes but when it first released it was an absolute train wreck, especially on Nexus devices (which it should run perfectly on). Android 5.1 fixed a lot of the issues but 5.0 was one of the worst releases for Android.

          when did I even said a thing about marshmallow? but marshmallow would certainly be nice knowing that you can use the micro sd as an app storage too specially on 16gb version, there wasn’t even any noticeable change from MIUI 6 to 7 on mipad just a bump up on the miui version

      Given their choice of an Atom SoC there’s a good chance it will run Windows 10.

        Windows MIUI. lel

          Probably a dual boot, Xiaomi and Microsoft have been in talks for awhile now.

            Oh well.. is Official, need some hackers to buy the Windows version 64GB and hack into dualboot capable.

              Give it a week the MIUI forums will have it all figured out

    2Amp@5V cigarette adaptors are dime a dozen on Chinese sales sites, and near to a $1 a piece.

    Doesn’t look 4:3

      why? looks exactly the same as mipad.
      the problem is that mipad2 has uselessly small 7.9 inch display
      it is to play games, not to read A4 pdfs and browse the web

        Looks longer/thinner on the image, like 16:10 to me.

        7.9 is the perfect size for a tablet IMO.
