Leaked info reveals upcoming Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 running Windows 10

Xiaomi might just launch the successor to the Mi Pad 2 and this time not with MIUI based on Android, but with Windows.


The tablet market is slowing down. We have hardly seen any good Android tablets in the recent past and even Apple has started offering a physical keyboard equipped iPads. Probably the only tablet market that could see a long run is Windows. Speaking of which, a new leak has revealed information about a new Windows 10 based tablet that is yet to be announced.

Xiaomi might just launch the successor to the Mi Pad 2 and this time not with MIUI based on Android, but with Windows. The Mi Pad 3 could feature a larger screen size of 9.7-inches with a resolution of 2048 x 1536. Now that is exactly the same as Apple's iPad Pro 9.7. Not just size, but if the leaked information is true, the Mi Pad 3 will offer slightly lesser weight at 380g and thickness at 6.08mm.
