Xiaomi Pad 5 Android Tablet Launched in India

Over the last year, we've seen a slew of Android tablets from companies such as Realme, Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, and others. However, with the exception of a couple of them, most Android tablets were affordable, with all of them costing less than Rs 20,000. Samsung was the only option for those looking for premium or even mid-range Android tablets. However, Xiaomi has responded to the situation with the Xiaomi Pad 5.

After a brief absence, the company has returned to the Indian tablet market. The Xiaomi Pad 5 Android tablet was unveiled today, and it will compete with the Motorola Tab G70, Samsung Galaxy Tab A8, and the entry-level iPad, the iPad Mini (9th Gen). Xiaomi's Pad 5 features a high refresh rate panel, a Snapdragon processor, plenty of storage, support for a smart pen to take advantage of the large screen, and more.
