Xiaomi MiPad is a 7.9″ Tablet Powered by Nvidia Tegra K1 Quad Core SoC

Xiaomi has just announced the MiPad, with a 7.9″ display using 2048×1536  (same as iPad mini) and an Nvidia Tegra K1 quad core Cortex A15 SoC with a Kepler GPU. There will be two versions one with 16GB flash, and the other with 64GB, which will be sold respectively for 1499 and 1699 CNY (~$240 and $275).

Xiaomi_MiPadHere are the specs for the MiPad:

  • SoC – Nvidia Tegra K1 quad core Cortex A15 processor @ 2.2 GHz with a 192-core Kepler GPU
  • System Memory – 2GB LPDDR3
  • Storage – 16 or 64GB eMMC, extensible to 128GB via microSD card
  • Display – 7.9” IPS display, 2048×1536 326 PPI
  • Camera – 8MP rear / 5MP front camera
  • Connectivity – 802.11ac 2×2 Wi-Fi
  • Battery – 6700 mAh battery
  • Dimensions – 202.1 x 135.4 x 8.5 mm
  • Weight – 360 grams

The first tablet by Xiaomi happens to be the first consumer tablet featuring Nvidia Tegra K1 SoC. It will run MIUI which is based on Android. The tablet will sell in China initially, with a beta taking place in June, and sales to the general public during the summer. Despite Xiaomi push into international markets, it might be difficult to sell in Europe and Asia, as if we are to believe comments on G+, the product itself, and the advertising campaign look a bit too similar to Apple iPad Mini. More information is available in Xiaomi MiPad product page (Chinese).

Looks really nice ! It’s only too bad there is (apparently) no video out (no HDMI, no MHL…). Otherwise it might have completely replaced my laptop.
Hope the whole MIUI firmware source-code (incl. kernel and device-tree) for this product will be published.
