The realme Pad Mini was first released in the Philippines earlier this month, with the 3GB + 32GB LTE model costing PHP 9,990 and the 4GB + 64GB LTE model costing PHP 11,990. The former’s WiFi model is now available as well.
The realme Pad Mini 3GB + 32GB WiFi variant is listed at PHP 8,990, but from April 20 to April 22, customers can get a PHP 1,500 discount on Lazada, bringing the price down to PHP 7,490.
What we can say about its design?
Despite being a cheap tablet, the Pad Mini’s all-aluminum body gives it the same luxury feel as its larger sibling. Flat edges are also included, which is what you’d expect from a modern tablet. The Pad Mini has slim side bezels and slightly thicker top and bottom bezels due to its smaller size. A 5-megapixel selfie camera is located in the top bezel.
The Pad Mini, unlike its bigger brother, has the headphone connection on top, next to the speakers, and the power and volume buttons on the right. The MicroSD card slot is on the left side, while the USB-C port and additional loudspeaker are on the bottom.
