Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 and Mi Pad 3 Pro details leak


After several months of “silence”, rumors regarding the fate of the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 tablet  have risen again and this time they look more interesting than ever.

An unknown Chinese source insists that the Chinese company plans to unveil two variants of the most awaited tablet: a Mi Pad 3 and a Mi Pad 3 Pro model with really impressive features. The Mi Pad 3 will retain the original 7.9-inch display size like its predecessors (with an unknown -so far- resolution)and it will be equipped with 4GB RAM and 64/128GB of storage options. It is expected to run on Android 7.0 Nougat and will be priced at ¥1299 ($188) and ¥1599 ($231) respectively.

But -wait- there’s more: there will be a second variant of the device called Mi Pad 3 Pro, equipped with a 9,7 inch display with an unknown yet resolution but similar storage/RAM option as its younger model. It will be powered by an Intel Atom x7-Z8750 SoC and will be equipped with Windows 10 with a price tag that will begin from ¥1699 ($246).

That’s all the info we have so far on these two upcoming models so all we have to do for now, is to wait for their official launch scheduled to take place during the same day of the Xiaomi Mi 6 unveiling, sometime in May.

    Intel Atom x7-Z8750 SoC?? Seriously? I can’t believe that : it’s something from 2016! Apollo Lake N4200 is the least SoC they can use…

      If one’s not a heavy multitasker would be ok-ish however it’s a kind of a let down, I agree.
      Also, I’m curious to see how much different in performance that Atom 8750 is from the 8500 witch I’m currently using with my Asus T100HA.. and I mean everyday usage performance, not in paper/numbers performance..

      Please take a look at the performance of N4200 and Z8750 they are almost identical, the price difference is favor of Z8750, also the power N4200 4W while z8750 2W. BTW N4200 is from Q3 2016

        Indeed, from Q3 2016…but first devices with it appeared in late 2016,early 2017 (Voyo MiniPC ?)…anyway 😉
        My point was about technology: using a BayTrail or a CherryTrail SoC today, for a *new* product, aiming at ‘beating’ iPad 3, is definitely a bad choice, either technically and, moreover, for marketing purposes.

    Oh for god’s sake Xiaomi.

    Stylus. Stylus. Stylus.

    NO STYLUS NO SALE

    How can anyone look at the direction MS is taking with Windows 10–i.e. playing on the Apple field: art, design, education; pushing note-taking and handwriting recognition; the “Windows creators’ update” etc.–and not understand that in 2017 a premium tablet NEEDS A DIGITIZER AND A STYLUS!

    /end rant

      No It doesn’t, It’s already well know most Surface pro or ipad pro users don’t use a stylus. And professional artist don’t use them neither, they use dedicated devices for serious work. Putting a digitizer would rise the cost of the pad and it’s not xiaomi’s market anyway.

      No m3,m5 or m7 because one m processor costs more than mi pad 3. Sorry for the disappointment.
