POCO today introduced its first-ever tablet, the POCO Pad, alongside the POCO F6 5G and POCO F6 Pro. The POCO Pad bears a strong resemblance to the Redmi Pad Pro.

The POCO Pad features a sleek dual-color metal unibody design, measuring 7.52mm thick and weighing 571g, with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on the front.

It boasts a 12.1″ 120Hz LCD screen with 2.5K resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio, 68 billion colors (12-bit), a peak brightness of 600 nits, DC dimming for flicker-free viewing at lower brightness levels, and TÜV Rheinland triple certification.

Under the hood, the POCO Pad is powered by the Snapdragon 7s Gen 2, paired with 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB of UFS 2.2 storage, expandable via microSD cards up to 1.5TB.

For entertainment, it includes quad speakers with Dolby Atmos and a display that supports Dolby Vision. The 10,000mAh battery supports 16 hours of continuous video streaming and 33W charging.

For photography, it has 8MP cameras on both the front and back. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

The device runs on Xiaomi HyperOS, featuring Home Screen+, shared clipboard, cross-device notes app, photo and network sync, and supports Mi Canvas for creative tasks using the POCO Smart Pen.

The POCO Pad comes with three optional accessories (sold separately):

POCO Smart Pen: Offers 12 hours of continuous writing, 4096 pressure sensitivity levels, 10g activation force, ultra-low latency, and has buttons for writing and screenshots.

POCO Pad Keyboard: Features a 64-key layout, shortcut key combinations, an independent pen holder, 760 hours of standby time, and 59 hours of continuous use. It is made of black PU material, resistant to dirt, fingerprints, and oil stains.

POCO Pad Cover: Acts as both a protective case and a stand, with a three-fold rear suction design, and skin-friendly material that reduces fingerprints. It intelligently wakes the Pad when opened and puts it to sleep when closed.
