We haven’t heard much about the new Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 tablet for a while. The latest we heard was from the analyst Pan Jiutang who said that the Xiaomi tablet should debut sometime in the third quarter of 2015 with Windows 10 on board. However, even when the third quarter is nearly coming to an end, we haven’t received any details its launch. But, earlier today, we spotted the Xiaomi Mi tablet 2 on the Chinese 3C Quality Certification Center, which could mean that the tablet is ready for launch.
Yes, Xiaomi’s latest tablet has just hit the Chinese 3C certification center. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 tablet comes with the model number 2015716 classified under the category Tablet PC. While the listing doesn’t reveal much of the specifications of the device, it confirms that the new Mi 2 tablet is on the way. Its been more than a year since Xiaomi announced its first generation Mi tablet and the company had earlier assured that it will continue its tablet lineup, so a new launch is imminent. This further proves that the device is under development and we may see the launch soon.
IHS Analyst Pan Jiutang had also added that the new Xiaomi tablet will come with Windows 10. if this really is the case with the Mi Pad 2, it won’t be surprising given that it is said the company is experimenting with Windows 10 even on its flagship smartphones like Mi4.
The nearest Xiaomi product launch is on September 22, where it will unveil the flagship Xiaomi Mi4C (FYI, its going to be the first Xiaomi smartphone with USB Type-C). This might be a good opportunity for the company to release new tablet too. And it will fall in line with Jiutang’s prediction of a Q3 launch. However, if you have been following Xiaomi for the past couple of years, the company has almost everytime teased its upcoming product in plenty before launch. Since we haven’t heard anything officially about the Mi Pad 2 till now, it looks like there’s still some time for the unveiling of the device.
