Chinese smartphone manufacterur Xiaomi just had a huge event last night to introduce a couple new products. Both are Android powered devices that undercut nearly everything in their class in terms of specifications and even more notably, price.
One big announcement was the Mi Pad, the companies first ever tablet. The 7.9″ inch tablet packs a design which is reminiscent of the iPad Mini but with many more colors to choose from. The appearance is very iPad Mini-esque. In fact these tablets could easily pass off for the iPad Mini-C. The specifications are as seen below.
- 7,9″ inch IPS display
- 2048×1536 – 326 PPI
- NVIDIA Tegra K1 Processor
- 2GB RAM
- 16/64GB Internal Storage – microSD expandable up to 128GB
- 8MP Rear Camera
- 5MP Front Camera
- 802.11ac Dual Band WiFi
- 6700 mAh battery
Looking at that spec package you would expect something priced to compete with the likes of the iPad Mini or the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 (what a mouthful), but you would be mistaken. This product comes in at an extremely low price of only $240 USD. For that $240 you get the 16GB base model and for only $35 more you can get 4 times the storage on board. That brings the 64GB model to a mere $275.
After unveiling that incredible tablet, Xiaomi pulled another incredible product out. A 49″ inch 4K Android-Powered TV. Seeing that short description your probably already thinking that this TV costs upwards of $10,000, but once again you would be very wrong. This massive Ultra HD smart television costs only $645. And that’s not even all of it. The full specification list is directly below.
- 49″ inch Ultra HD 4K Display – 3840×2160
- 15.5cm Ultra Thin Frame – 6.2mm bezel
- Quad-Core 1.45 GHz processor
- 2GB RAM – 8GB Internal Storage
- 802.11ac Dual-Band WiFi
- 8-speaker sound bar with 120W subwoofer
- MIUI TV Android-based OS
- 11-key remote + gesture remote app
Once again looking at that you’d expect the price to come in at well over $10,000, but it’s only about $645.
So after reading all that news. Does anyone else want to move to China?
