Realme Pad Mini specs and renderings leak revealing entry-level 8.7-inch Android tablet with 8-core Unisoc Tiger T616 chipset
Hot on the heels of the upcoming Lenovo Legion Y700 is the Realme Pad Mini, a further addition to the seemingly neglected compact tablet market. While the Realme model comes in at a similar size to its Lenovo counterpart, the two devices are worlds apart when it comes to specifications, with the Pad Mini clearly aimed at those looking for a more affordable budget-friendly tablet. Press renderings and details have been shared by @OnLeaks and Smartprix, although the images (see below) only show the rear side of the Realme Pad Mini.
At the heart of the device is purportedly the Unisoc Tiger T616 chip. This is an 8-core ARM-based solution with two Cortex-A75 cores that can reach a clock rate of 2.0 GHz with support from six Cortex-A55 cores that can manage 1.8 GHz. An ARM Mali G57 MP1 iGPU processes the graphics, while there is also 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage space. Camera equipment consists of the noticeable 8.0 MP sensor on the rear and apparently a 5 MP lens at the front.
While the processing-related specs of the Realme Pad Mini hardly scream "high-performance", future owners will be at least satisfied with having a handily pocketable and mobile device that should be long-lasting. The battery capacity is a decent 6,400-mAh and the Realme Pad Mini supports an 18 W charging speed. If Realme keeps the price way down for this 8.7-inch Android tablet, which has a thickness of just 7.6 mm (0.30 inches), then it could find many buyers who have been thirsty for new products on a somewhat barren market landscape.
