Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 gets benchmarked with Intel chipset

Xiaomi’s Mi Pad 2 has been a very long time in the making, with rumors about it surfacing as early as last December. Yet here we are almost one year later and the tablet is still not official.

That might change soon, however. The Mi Pad 2 has been certified in China this September, and now someone in possession of a prototype has decided to put it through the paces of Geekbench. This thankfully reveals a few things about the device’s hardware.

First off, it’s using an Intel chipset, namely the Atom x5-Z8500, with a 2.24 GHz quad-core CPU. The tablet has 2GB of RAM, and it’s currently running Android 5.1 Lollipop. Those are all the details for now, but hopefully the Mi Pad 2 will get official soon.

Past rumors spoke about it having a 7.9-inch 2,048×1,536 touchscreen, and 16GB of built-in storage (which should, however, be expandable). And since this is Xiaomi we’re talking about, expect to see the latest iteration of MIUI on top of Android.
