Realme continues to expand its portfolio by introducing its very first tablet, the Realme Pad.
Unlike the others, the company is starting soft by positioning the Realme Pad in the budget category. This machine is powered by a budget MediaTek Helio G80 processor with an option between 3GB and 4GB RAM and 32GB and 64GB of expandable storage.
The screen is quite enormous, though. It’s a 10.4-inch FHD+ panel with uniform bezels. For the best entertainment experience, Realme rigged it with four speakers on each side with Dolby Atmos technology.
To take full advantage of the screen real estate, it runs on a custom Realme UI on top of Android 11.
Its 7,100mAh battery is not the largest but should be enough to last you for hours considering its underpowered processor. It’s joined by an 18W charger.
Realme then used the same 8-megapixels in front and back and has dual microphones if you plan on using them for online classes and video conferencing. Sadly, it lacks a fingerprint scanner to keep the price down.
While it may look a little low-end, the Realme Pad was dressed really well. It has an all-metal build that is only 6.9mm thin — thinner than almost all smartphones around.
The Realme Pad has a starting price of INR13,999 (around Php9,500) for the 3GB/32GB WiFi-only model, adding LTE connectivity will cost INR15,999 (around Php10,900), while the 4GB/64GB/ LTE is at INR17,999 (around Php12,200). It will be initially available in India starting September 16. Since it’s the first from the company, it should also arrive in the Philippines soon.
