Xiaomi Pad 6 offers last-minute competition to Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S9 line

Xiaomi has confirmed that its latest Xiaomi Pad 6 tablet, which originally launched in China back in mid-April, is coming to a host of new markets internationally, including the UK.

The Pad 6 made its Chinese debut on April 19, alongside the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro (and Xiaomi 13 Ultra), more than a year and half after the Xiaomi Pad 5 line was introduced in mid-2021. The standard Pad 6 later came to India, on June 13 and now, as of July 7, is seeing a wider rollout to a number of markets, including the UK (it’s available to buy direct from Xiaomi) and Europe.

Priced at £369 (approximately $470 / AU$710) for the sole 6GB RAM / 128GB configuration, the Xiaomi Pad 6 will likely qualify for our list of the best cheap tablets (and best Android tablets). It has some capable-sounding mid-range specs, and its predecessor impressed us in our Xiaomi Pad 5 review thanks to a well-rounded experience, smart software optimizations, and a great-looking screen.

The Xiaomi Pad 6 arrives with an 11-inch display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, but ups the refresh rate over the Pad 5 from 120Hz (already fast for a tablet) to 144Hz, along with a sharper 1800 x 2880 resolution (raising pixel density between generations from 274ppi to 309ppi), which should collectively build on what was already one of the Pad line’s greatest strengths.
