More than half a year ago it was rumored that Xiaomi was to launch a tablet named Mipad and there were some leaked photos. But Xiaomi launched a smart TV instead later in the year.

Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi, later admitted that Xiaomi was developing a variety of smart devices but wouldn’t mass-produce all of them.

Last week Xiaomi released a MIUI for Nexus 7 Ⅱ– MIUI is a custom Android system brand used for Xiaomi’s hardware products including Xiaomi phones and the smart TV. With that, it is speculated the Mipad will come soon.

  1. I have a Nexus 5 (32 GB) and really love it! It is just the right size and weight, and has an awesome HD screen and a powerful processor. I hope the Nexus 6 will not be any bigger (like have a 5.5″ screen) as this would be a show stopper for me.

    My wishlist for the Nexus 6:

    – better battery (that lasts longer)

    – better camera (at least 13 or 16 Megapixels)

    – no bigger that the Nexus 5 (which is my personal size limit)

    – LTE (of course!)

    – 802.11ac Wifi (same as Nexus 5)

    – a higher resolution screen (like quad HD)

    – a faster processor (at least a snapdragon 805)

    – and that feature on the Galaxy S5 where you can combine LTE and WiFi to speed
