Xiaomi is preparing to release its second tablet, known as the Xiaomi Pad 6 in India. The tablet will be released in India on June 13, which is today. Xiaomi has returned to the Indian tablet market after a seven-year absence. The Pad 6 made its debut in China in April, along with a “pro” form, although it appears that the pro variant will not be available in India for the time being. In India, Xiaomi previously released the Pad 5 with a keyboard and stylus. The tablet was well-received by the audience, and the Pad 5’s performance generates high expectations for the Pad 6, which is slated to include improved internals and more functionality.
Expected Price and Launch Timeline
The last Xiaomi tablet, the Pad 5, was released in India with a starting price of Rs 26,999 for the 6GB/128GB model and a price of Rs 28,999 for the 6GB/256GB model. Prior to the release of the Xiaomi Pad 6, both variants of the Pad 5 have seen price cuts of up to Rs1,000. As a result, the Pad 6 might be priced similarly. The launch ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. and will be broadcast live on the company’s official social media channels and YouTube.
In its Chinese edition, the Xiaomi Pad 6 has an amazing 11-inch 2.8K LCD display with a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a peak brightness of up to 550nits. The screen is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. The tablet is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 processor and has a large 8,840mAh battery that enables 33W rapid charging. In terms of additional features, the Xiaomi Pad 6 has a 13MP main camera on the back and an 8MP front-facing camera for taking photographs and videos. It is powered by the MIUI 14 operating system, which is based on Android 13.
In China, the Xiaomi Pad 6 was released alongside a slew of accessories, including a bespoke keyboard and pen for the Pad 6. According to Xiaomi’s India hype reel, these accessories would be introduced in India as well.
The Xiaomi Pad 6 is distinguished by its elegant and lightweight design, which is constructed from sturdy aluminum and is extremely thin at 6.51mm thickness, and weighs only 490g. Its compatibility with Xiaomi’s second-generation smart pen stylus is one of its standout features. In addition, Xiaomi is anticipated to release the Redmi Buds 4 Active wireless earbuds alongside the Pad 6.
