Say hello to the Redmi Pad SE – the latest tablet in the portfolio of Xiaomi’s affordable sub-brand. The device arrives on the international scene with a big screen for “exceptional visual enjoyment” and a price tag of just €199.
Redmi equipped this tablet with a Snapdragon 680 chipset. It is built on the 6nm process and has 128 GB storage alongside; there is a micro SD port for up to 1 TB more. We get to select one of three RAM options – 4 GB, 6 GB, or 8 GB.
The screen is an 11” LCD with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels with up to 90 Hz refresh rate. Redmi promises 400 nits brightness and 1500:1 contrast, and the brand even certified the panel at TUV Rheinland for its low blue light.
The front has a fairly thin bezel which hides the 5 MP selfie camera that sits on the top side (when held horizontally). At the back is 8 MP f/2.0 camera with 1080p video recording capabilities. Redmi Pad SE comes with “large-size quad speakers” and support for Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res audio, and it even has a 3.5 mm audio jack.
There is also a USB-C port for the 8,000 mAh battery, which, sadly, supports just 10W charging. Other specs include Android 13 with MIUI Pad 14 on top, a 478g body, dual-frequency Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0.
Redmi Pad SE is available in three colors – Lavender Purple, Graphite Gray, and Mint Green. Prices are €199 for the 4 GB, €229 for the 6 GB, and €249 for the 8 GB variant. Some retailers will also offer a proprietary cover in Black or White for extra comfort and protection at an undisclosed additional price.
