This new 7.9-inch slate only comes with Android on board, featuring the new Mediatek MT8176 chipset, next to 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. The price in China is around $220 USD, but the launch date is not public yet.

The third iteration of Xiaomi's Mi Pad tablet has been quietly introduced by the Chinese company earlier today. While the display and unibody design have not been touched, the Mi Pad 3 comes with quite a few upgrades and changes when compared to its predecessor.

Xiaomi decided to drop the Intel processor, moving to the new MediaTek MT8176 SoC. This hexa core processor is accompanied by 4 GB RAM and 64 GB internal storage. Unfortunately, it looks like the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 has no microSD slot. The slate comes with a generous 6,600 mAh battery that is expected to provide up to 12 hours of regular use and more than 800 hours in standby mode. The main camera is now a 13 MP, f/2.2 unit. At last, we should also mention the 7.9-inch LCD screen with 2,048X1,536 pixels.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 runs Android with MIUI 8 on top, and it seems like a Windows version is not in the cards yet. While the Chinese market is expected to get the new tablet for around $220 USD, the launch date is still unknown. We will get back to the Mi Pad 3 as soon as more details surface, 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.
