It seems the battle of smartphone flagships is going to intensify to a whole new level in the coming months. Huawei has already released its widely anticipated Huawei P10 and it’s just a matter of time before Samsung unveils its next-generation flagships, the S8 and S8 Plus. Xiaomi, meanwhile, is prepping its own aggressive campaign powered by the Xiaomi Mi 6 which is expected to be released in early April alongside the Mi Pad 3.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 whose specs and prices were leaked recently has now been spotted once again in a leaked image on China’s popular microblogging platform Weibo. The image displays the rear shell of the forthcoming tablet in different color options.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 will be accompanied by a more powerful variant dubbed the Mi Pad 3 Pro. The leaked image, however, does not clarify whether the said back panel belongs to the Mi Pad 3 or its bigger and more powerful sibling.
As you can see in the image above, you will have four color variants to choose from: black, gold, red/rose, and silver.
As for the specs, the Mi Pad 3 tablet comes equipped with a 7.9-inch display (resolution unknown), 4GB of RAM, 64GB/128GB ROM, and Android 7.0. According to rumors, the 64GB variant will be priced at 1299 Yuan (~$189) while the 128GB variant will cost you 1599 Yuan (~$232).
Compared to that, the Mi Pad 3 Pro tablet will feature a bigger screen sized at 9.7-inch (resolution unknown). Under the hood, you will find the Intel 8750 processor, aided by 4GB of RAM. Just like the Mi Pad 3, the Mi Pad 3 Pro will also offer you two storage variants to choose from — 64GB and 128GB, priced at 1699 Yuan (~$247) and 1999 Yuan (~$299) respectively. The Mi Pad 3 Pro will be powered by Windows 10.
There is no confirmation regarding the release date yet. But word around the water cooler is that the new tablets COULD BE announced on the same day as the Xiaomi Mi 6.[Via]
