Xiaomi is preparing to release its latest tablet, the Xiaomi Pad 6, in India on June 13. This tablet marks Xiaomi’s comeback to the Indian tablet market after a gap of seven years. The Pad 6 was initially introduced in China in April, along with a “pro” version, but it is unlikely that the pro variant will be launched in India for now.

The Xiaomi Pad 6 is priced at CNY 1,999 (around 23,100) in China for the base model with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. The 8GB/128GB variant is available for CNY 2,099 (approximately 24,250), while the highest configuration, featuring 8GB RAM and 256GB storage, can be purchased for CNY 2,399 (around 27,700).

Xiaomi’s previous tablet, the Pad 5, was launched in India with an initial price of 26,999 for the 6GB/128GB version, while the 6GB/256GB model was priced at 28,999. Ahead of the release of the Xiaomi Pad 6, both variants of the Pad 5 have undergone price reductions of up to 1,000.

The Xiaomi Pad 6, in its Chinese version, comes with an 11-inch 2.8K LCD display that boasts a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a peak brightness of up to 550nits. The screen supports HDR10+ and Dolby Vision, and it is safeguarded by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Driving the tablet’s performance is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870 processor, while a sizable 8,840mAh battery fuels its operations and supports 33W fast charging.

Speaking of specifications, the Xiaomi Pad 6 is equipped with a 13MP main camera on the back and an 8MP front-facing camera for capturing photos and videos. It operates on the MIUI 14 software, which is based on Android 13. In China, Xiaomi provides optional accessories like a custom keyboard and stylus for the Pad 6. These accessories are expected to be introduced in India as well, as indicated by Xiaomi’s India hype reel.

The Xiaomi Pad 6 stands out with its sleek and lightweight design, featuring an all-metal construction that is slim at just 6.51mm thick and weighs 490g. Notably, it supports Xiaomi’s second-generation smart pen stylus.
