Xiaomi has announced the return of the next-generation Mi Pad 5 and Mi Pad 5 Pro tablets.
What about scarcity?
The first sale of the new products took place earlier this week, and the company was able to sell 200,000 units in 5 minutes. Taking into account the price from $310 for the most affordable Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 to $540 for the most expensive Pro version, the manufacturer received revenue of $62-108 million. Although there was no official confirmation on this.
The day before Xiaomi announced the return of the tablets on sale, and already everyone in China can freely buy any of the new products. Stylus and cases are also available. It is likely that this time there is no problem with the lack of devices, which is hinted at by the lack of news to the contrary.
Recall, Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 powered by Snapdragon 860 is only available in Wi-Fi Only modification. It is this model that will be sold soon in Europe. Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro with Snapdragon 870 is offered in the top version with 5G support. The Pro version is likely to remain exclusive to the Chinese market.
