One month after Xiaomi announced the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 & Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro flagship tablets in China, the time has come for the lacun of the international version.
Xiaomi has decided to launch what they call the “Global Version” of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 through Aliexpress, since they have a lot of experience with global shipping anyway, and have good customer support.
Delivery is estimated to October 9, and though the regular price starts at $474, there will be a September 23 to 24 early bird price where the price is just $299, which would be quite the bargain.
OS on the global version is still MIUI for Pad, but everything will be in English and other supported languages.
