The fact that Xiaomi might soon unveil a new tablet has been in the rumor mill for a while and now it looks like a few interesting details have just leaked online. While the new information is far from detailed, it brings the whole rumor a bit closer to an accurate description of the device. Remains to see if this info proves to be more than a rumor, of course.

According to a recent report from China, Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 will run Android 5.1 Lollipop and Windows 10, but will feature a dual-boot system. Thanks to the affordable Intel platforms for tablets, most Intel-powered slates can run both Windows and Android, but only a few feature dual-boot systems. The Mi Pad 2 is also said to pack a 14 nm Intel Cherry Trail processor.

Unfortunately, all the other specs are missing for now. On the other hand, the previous report by Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang mentioned that Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 might launch by the end of September. These being said, we will surely hear and see more of the new Xiaomi slate in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
