Xiaomi launches Redmi Pad Pro, a 12.1-inch Quad HD tablet under 300 Euros

Xiaomi, the Chinese tech giant known for its value-packed devices, has just unveiled its latest tablet, the Redmi Pad Pro. This new addition to the Redmi lineup promises to deliver impressive features at a price that won’t break the bank.

The new tablet from the Chinese manufacturer is built around a very large 12.1-inch touchscreen panel (i.e. a surface area 33% larger than the Redmi Pad), in 16:10 format, without forgetting a low price.

Big Screen, Big Performance, and more

The Redmi Pad Pro’s most striking feature is its large 12.1-inch display. This is a significant upgrade from the standard 10.6-inch Redmi Pad. The screen boasts a Quad HD resolution, delivering crisp visuals whether you’re watching movies, browsing the web, or playing games. It also supports a 144Hz refresh rate, making everything from scrolling through social media to playing fast-paced games incredibly smooth.

Under the hood, the Redmi Pad Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset. This is a capable processor that handles everyday tasks with ease and can even handle more demanding applications like video editing or gaming. Coupled with either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, depending on the model, the tablet promises a snappy and responsive experience.

Both front and rear have 8-megapixel cameras. For its part, connectivity is ensured by Wi-Fi 6 compatibility, not forgetting a valuable 3.5 mm jack port. Perfect for enjoying your favorite content discreetly, in bed or elsewhere.

Long-Lasting Battery and Fast Charging

One of the biggest concerns for tablet users is battery life. Xiaomi has addressed this with a massive 10,000mAh battery in the Redmi Pad Pro. According to the company, this should be enough to get you through a full day of use, even with heavy usage.

And when it’s time to recharge, the tablet supports 33W fast charging, which can get you back to full power in no time.

Immersive Audio and Sleek Design

The Redmi Pad Pro isn’t just about performance and battery life. Xiaomi has also paid attention to the audio experience, equipping the tablet with quad stereo speakers that support Dolby Atmos. This means you can expect rich, immersive sound whether you’re watching videos or listening to music.

The tablet itself is designed to be both stylish and portable. It’s available in three attractive colors: Graphite Gray, Mint Green, and Ocean Blue. And at just 7.5mm thick, it’s easy to slip into a bag and take with you on the go.

Software and Accessories

The Redmi Pad Pro runs on Android 14 with Xiaomi’s own HyperOS on top. This offers a smooth and intuitive user experience, with features like easy device pairing and seamless data transfer.

Xiaomi is also offering several accessories for the Redmi Pad Pro, including a Smart Keyboard and a Smart Pen. These accessories turn the tablet into a productivity powerhouse, perfect for taking notes, writing emails, or even creating digital art.

Affordability Redefined

Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the Redmi Pad Pro is its price. Starting at just €299, it’s a remarkably affordable tablet for the features it offers. This makes it an attractive option for students, professionals, and casual users alike.

Availability

The Redmi Pad Pro is available for pre-order in China now and is expected to hit shelves in other markets soon. It will come in three storage configurations: 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB, and 8GB+256GB.

The manufacturer also offers various accessories (optional) to boost the productivity of its tablet. As with the competition, we find in particular an active pen, the Redmi Smart Pen (69.99 euros), but also a keyboard (99.99 euros).

Xiaomi’s Commitment to Value

With the Redmi Pad Pro, Xiaomi continues its tradition of offering high-quality devices at competitive prices. This latest tablet is a testament to the company’s commitment to making technology accessible to everyone.

What This Means for the Tablet Market

The Redmi Pad Pro is likely to shake up the mid-range tablet market. Its combination of features, performance, and affordability makes it a strong contender against other tablets in its price range. It could also put pressure on higher-priced tablets, forcing other manufacturers to reconsider their pricing strategies.

In conclusion, the Redmi Pad Pro is a tablet that punches above its weight. It offers a premium experience at a mid-range price, making it a compelling choice for anyone in the market for a new tablet. Whether you’re a student, a professional, or a casual user, the Redmi Pad Pro has something to offer everyone.
