The second generation of Xiaomi’s highly regarded tablet the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 is officially here and it has a key difference from its predecessor, the new Mi Pad 2 will use an Intel chipset instead of an Nvidia one.

But that is not the only change with the Mi Pad 2, since the device is improved in almost every aspect while maintaining a very attractive price. Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 Specs Let’s begin with the biggest change in the spec sheet, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 will feature a 64-bit Quad-Core Intel Atom X5-Z8500 clocked at 2.24GHz, which is manufactured at 14nm. The CPU will be accompanied with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM and an Intel HD integrated GPU. For the on-board storage you will have a choice between 16 and 64GB.

Furthermore, Xiaomi has created a software setting called “Reading Mode” which makes reading on the device less strenuous for your eyes while saving some battery as well.

The tablet’s battery is rated at 6190mAh, which, oddly enough, is smaller than the first Mi Pad. For charging and syncing the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2, there is a USB Type-C port at the bottom of the device.

Xiaomi had one last surprise for us at the unveiling of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2, which is software related, the Mi Pad 2 will not only come with a MIUI v7 Android skin which is based on Lollipop 5.1, but there will also be a Windows 10 version available!

The price of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 will start at just 999 Yuan, which is about £104, for the 16GB model, while the 64GB one will cost 299 Yuan, just over £135.

Of course that price will be slightly higher for most people, considering that they will only be able to buy it through a reseller, and we suspect that this price will be for the Android version only, but we still think that the Mi Pad 2 will be a very good value for money device.
