Realme Pad mini: 8.7-inch tablet debuts in Europe for a bargain price with LTE connectivity
Realme has revealed the Pad mini in Europe, a tablet that the company first introduced in April. To recap, the Pad mini has an 8.7-inch IPS display that resolves at 1,340 x 800 pixels. With a 5:3 aspect ratio, the display also has a 179 PPI pixel density and an 84.6% screen-to-body ratio. Unsurprisingly, Realme limits its budget tablet to 60 Hz, rather than enabling higher refresh rates.
Additionally, Realme equips the tablet with a 6,400 mAh battery that supports 18 W fast charging and underpins the Unisoc Tiger T616, a 12 nm chipset. For reference, the Unisoc Tiger T616 features two ARM Cortex-A75 CPU cores clocked at 2 GHz, six Cortex-A55 cores that can reach 1.8 GHz and a Mali-G57 MP1 GPU. At launch, Realme will offer the Pad mini with a minimum 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB UFS 2.1 flash storage, complemented by a microSD card reader.
Moreover, the 211.8 x 124.5 x 7.6 mm tablet weighs in at 372 g and ships with Android 11, not the newer Android 12. As Realme's marketing images show, it also includes two cameras, albeit only 5 MP front-facing and 8 MP rear-facing sensors. The Realme Pad mini arrives in Europe in blue and grey colour options, plus the following connectivity and memory configuration options:
- 3 GB of RAM/32 GB of storage (Wi-Fi only) - €179.99
- 4 GB of RAM/64 GB of storage (Wi-Fi only) - €199.99
- 4 GB of RAM/64 GB of storage (LTE & Wi-Fi) - €229.99
