Xiaomi has finally launched the new Xiaomi Pad 6, succeeding the Pad 5 in India. The new Android tablet comes with an attractive spec sheet and an even more interesting price tag, standing head-to-head against the OnePlus Pad. Here’s a look at what it brings to the table.
Xiaomi Pad 6: Price and Availability
The Xiaomi Pad 6 is priced at Rs 26,999 (6GB+128GB) and Rs 28,999 (8GB+256GB) retaining the launch price of the Xiaomi Pad 5, which by the way now costs Rs 1,000 less (it starts at Rs 25,999). The sale will start on June 21 on Amazon, mi.com, and Xiaomi Retail.
But, there’s an introductory offer. If you are interested, you can get a cashback of Rs 3,000 on the use of an ICICI Bank card. This will bring the price down to Rs 23,999 (6GB+8GB) and Rs 25,999 (8GB+256GB) making the Xiaomi Pad 6 a really good option in the Android tablet space.
The accompanying accessories have a price too. The 2nd Gen Smart Pen is priced at Rs 5,999, the keyboard at Rs 5,999, and the case at Rs 1,499.
