  • Xiaomi has launched the Pad 6 and Pad 6 Pro tablets in China.
  • The Pro model in particular brings horsepower and charging upgrades.
  • The series has a sub-$300 price tag in China, but there’s no word on a wider release.

Xiaomi has offered its Pad tablets for years now, being among the best Android tablets on the market. Now, the company has announced the Xiaomi Pad 6 series in China, marking the latest entry in its long-running series.

The Xiaomi Pad 6 and Pad 6 Pro share an 11-inch 144Hz LCD screen (2,880 x 1,800) and the same fundamental design. But that’s about where the similarities end.

Xiaomi’s Pro model is clearly the star of the show here though, featuring a Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 processor, 67W wired charging for the 8,600mAh battery, and a 20MP selfie camera. The Pro variant also packs a quad-speaker system, but it’s unclear if this setup is available on the standard model.

In any event, the standard Xiaomi Pad 6 brings a Snapdragon 870 SoC, 33W charging for the 8,840mAh battery, and an 8MP selfie camera.
