The Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 released last Tuesday shares lots of similarities with Apple’s iPad Mini. While the new tablet has many intriguing features, we don’t know which version will release first, Android or Windows 10.

The new tablet’s 7.9-inch display packed with 2048 x 1536 pixel resolution at 326 ppi barely shows any difference from Apple’s iPad Mini tablet released in November, 2013. The only difference you notice includes an Intel Atom Chip that operates the Google Android OS or Windows 10, thus reaching out to a huge fan base.

It’s not known if the new tablet will use Windows 10 or Android, but the good news is Microsoft’s OS will be free and won’t include any licensing charges. Some of the most intriguing and advanced features of the new tablet are as follows, reports Yibada.

Mi Pad 2’s powered by 2.24 GHz Atom chip paired with 2 GB RAM, thus making it easy for you to choose between Windows 10 and Android since both run on Intel.

The Android version has a custom MIUI software connection for the open source edition of Android, which means you won’t have access to Google Play services and apps. Most likely, the interface will probably run with a 64 GB or 16 GB flash storage.

Xiaomi further announced the latest features in the new tablet: an 8 MP rear camera, a 5MP front camera, 12-hours of charging with 6190 mAH battery power and fast charging with USB type-C port.

As of now, users can buy the Mi Pad 2 tablet running on Android, but Windows 10 fans will have to wait for longer. The 16 GB storage tablets costs US$156 (AU$217) while the 64 GB device’s sells for US$197 (AU4274).
