Realme has finally launched its first Android tablet, the Realme Pad. As expected, it is a budget tablet from the brand, but it comes with some impressive features for the price, such as a metal build, a WUXGA+ display, Quad speakers with Dolby Atmos, a big 7,100mAh battery, and more. In India, the tablet comes in both WiFi-only as well as LTE configuration, and the price starts as low as ₹13,999 (for the WiFi-only model).
Speaking of the design first, even if it is a budget tablet that starts well under ₹15,000 in India, Realme did not opt for a plastic build. There is a unibody metal body that gives this tablet a solid look and feel in the hands. It is also extremely thin at 6.9mm. There are four speakers in total where two are on the bottom, and two are on the top. There is a single camera on the back with no LED flash.
The main highlight of any tablet is its display, and the same is the case for Realme Pad. It comes with a large 10.4-inch display, and it is an IPS LCD with a resolution of 2000 × 1200 pixels (WUXGA+). So, while there were leaks pointing at an OLED panel, that’s not the case with this tablet. Now, this isn’t a huge surprise because expecting an OLED panel in a tablet that is priced as low as ₹13,999 is just way too much. The selfie camera is positioned on the left bezel (on the top if you hold the tablet in landscape orientation).
Under the hood, there is MediaTek Helio G80 SOC which we have seen in phones priced as low as ₹10,000 in India. So, it is no surprise to see this SOC in a tablet at this price. Realme is offering this tablet in two memory configurations – 3GB+ 32GB and 4GB + 64GB. You also get the option to add an external microSD card to expand the storage.
In terms of the cameras, Realme Pad has an 8-megapixel selfie camera and an 8 Megapixel rear camera. For normal video calls and attending online classes, this is more than enough.
Finally, Realme Pad has a huge 7,100mAh battery inside and it runs on Android 11-based Realme UI for Pad.
There are three configurations of this tablet to choose from and the color options are named Real Gold & Realme Grey. Here is the pricing for India –
3GB + 32GB (WiFi Only) – ₹13,999
3GB + 32GB (WiFi + LTE) – ₹15,999
4GB + 64GB (WiFi + LTE) – ₹17,999
The first sale is happening on the 16th of September at 12 PM. You can buy Realme Pad from Flipkart, the Realme website, or Realme stores near you.
