Realme Pad Mini unveiled: thin and light metal tablet at an affordable price


Last year, Realme launched its first tablet called the Realme Pad. For my money, the device turned out to be quite good for itself, and the other day it acquired a younger brother. On March 4, the Chinese introduced its compact version – Pad Mini.

By design, the novelty is a complete copy of the regular Realme Pad. Of course, with reduced dimensions, which are now 211.8 × 124.5 × 7.6 mm with a weight of 372 grams. The tablet has a solid metal body with flat edges, like the latest iPhones.

As for the IPS-screen, it decreased in diagonal from 10.4 to 8.7 inches, and the resolution instead of 2000×1200 became 1340×800 pixels. The processor has also changed – instead of Helio G80, Unisoc Tiger T616 works under the hood (~ 200 thousand points in AnTuTu). He is accompanied by 3/4 GB of RAM, as well as 32/64 GB of permanent memory. The tablet is running Android 11.

Responsible for autonomy is a 6400 mAh battery with 18-watt fast charging and Type-C reverse charging. In addition, the Realme Pad Mini has an LTE-enabled SIM card slot, dual-band Wi-Fi, an 8MP main camera, and a 5MP front camera for video calling. High-quality stereo speakers are responsible for the sound.
