Redmi India has officially confirmed that the Redmi Pad will launch in India on October 4th. It was expected to launch globally and then arrive in India later this year. But it looks like India will see the tablet launch first.
The Redmi Pad will be a budget tablet, unlike the Xiaomi Pad 5, a premium offering. It would go against Realme Pad and Moto Tab G62 in the Indian market. Let’s see what the Redmi Pad would be offering from the recent tablet rumors. The brand has not officially revealed anything other than the first look at the device on social media.

Redmi Pad: rumored features and specs
The Redmi Pad is rumored to come with a 10.6-inch screen with a 90Hz refresh rate and a resolution of 2000 x 1200 pixels.
Several leakers also report that the MediaTek Helio G99 SoC will power the Redmi Pad. It’s a SoC that we saw recently in the Poco M5, and Motorola has also teased the same for its next phone, the Moto G72.
The Redmi Pad might also come with a four-speaker setup like the Xiaomi Pad 5, and it is also reported that there would be Dolby Atmos certification. It will have an 8,000mAh battery and 18W fast charging.
A single 8MP camera performs the main functions on the back according to the leaks, while we can expect a 5MP sensor on the front.
Android tablets are flourishing
There was a time when you didn’t have a decent tablet on the Android side of the budget. We had to settle for tablets from Lenovo, Samsung and unbranded with too many compromises for the price and didn’t feel value for money.
The case is different now; we have many options in the budget segment, mostly below Rs. 20,000 segments. There’s Realme Pad X, Realme Pad and Realme Pad Mini from Realme, Moto Tab G62 from Moto and Oppo Pad Air from Oppo.
The Redmi Pad would be a great addition to this segment, especially if it comes with Redmi’s aggressive subscription price. Let’s wait for the launch of the tablet to see how Redmi India will place it.
