Xiaomi launched its first tablet earlier this year. Now the company may be working on a second model, and this one could have a larger screen and a less powerful processor.
In other words, it could be a cheaper alternative to the company’s first tablet.
Xiaomi hasn’t actually announced the new tablet yet, but specs for a device called the “Xiaomi 2014811” showed up at the GFXBench website recently, suggesting that someone is running tests on a tablet with that name and/or model number.
The tablet is said to feature a 9.2 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor with Adreno 306 graphics, 1GB of RAM, and about 8GB of storage.
It runs Android 4.4 KitKat software and will likely also feature Xiaomi’s MIUI user interface.
By way of comparison, the Xiaomi Mi Pad tablet which launched in May features a 7.9 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display, an NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor, 2GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of storage. That tablet has a starting price of just about $240 US… so a model with a lower-resolution display, slower processor, and less memory and storage will likely be even cheaper (although the Xiaomi 2014811 is at least expected to have a larger screen).
