Follows the footprint of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3

If you look at the listings of the specs, you can see that the specs are quite similar. The MT8176 of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 is slightly faster but the difference is barely noticeable. Anyway, one of the biggest letdown of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 was the unstable orbuggy os. Thus, let’s just hope that this much cheaper alternative offers better experience.
