Xiaomi has been very successful this year. They’ve released a number of devices thus far, and they’re close to reaching their target sales goal, but it’s still unknown whether they’ll be able to reach it before the end of the year. Either way, the company has announced two devices yesterday which might help them do that, the Redmi Note 3 and Mi Pad 2. We’ve covered both of those announcements yesterday, and are here to take a closer look at the Mi Pad 2 considering first hands-ons started popping op in China.

If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll get to see the Mi Pad 2 up close and personal in real life images. This China-based smartphone OEM has opted for an all-metal design this time around, and the tablet really does look quite sleek. Both its power / lock and volume rocker physical buttons are located on the right-hand side of the tablet, while you’ll notice the dual speakers in the lower back portion of the tablet’s back.
