Xiaomi had launched the Mi Pad 5 series with flagship level specs in China last year. The Chinese brand has hit the ball out of the park with the launch of its Mi Pad 5 range of tablets. The lineup has two tablets – the standard Mi Pad 5 and the high-end Mi Pad 5 Pro. Both the tablets look strong competitors to Samsung Galaxy S series.
Mi Pad 5, Mi Pad 5 Pro launch date in India
The launch date of Mi Pad 5 and Mi Pad 5 Pro in India is not yet revealed. However, if reports are to be believed, Xiaomi may not launch the Mi Pad 5 series in India, despite its massive success in China. But, the company should definitely give a serious thought largely because of lack of options in the Indian market.
