The Redmi Pad 5 might be released in India shortly as a less expensive variant of the Xiaomi Pad 5. While there has been no official confirmation from Redmi, rumours are circulating that the company is working on a low-cost, feature-rich tablet for the Indian market. The Redmi Pad 5's essential specs have also surfaced. Qualcomm's 5G chip might power the tablet, and its display could have a 90Hz refresh rate.
According to tipster Mukul Sharma, a Redmi Pad 5 tablet is in the works and will be available in India shortly. He didn't say anything further, so I'm not sure when this tablet will come for the time being.
However, a new report out of China gives us a glimpse of what the Redmi Pad 5 may look like. The Redmi Pad 5's essential characteristics, as well as its pricing, were revealed in an ITHome report.
Redmi Pad 5 specifications and features
The Redmi Pad is expected to have a 90Hz display, according to a recent report from China's ITHome, though the size is currently unknown. It's also expected to include an ultra-linear quad-speaker system, similar to the Xiaomi Pad 5.
Redmi Pad 5G is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 765G CPU, which was released in 2019. As a result, the Redmi Pad tablet is likely to offer 5G dual-mode SA and NSA. The gadget will also support 30W fast charging and run MIUI 13 Pad out of the box, according to the report.
Redmi Pad 5 price
In China, the Redmi Pad 5 is expected to cost CNY 1,999. This is around Rs 23,000 in Indian rupees. To put things in perspective, the Xiaomi Pad 5 costs Rs 26,999, and because the Redmi Pad 5 is expected to be cheaper, the anticipated price of Rs 23,000 seems reasonable.
