The 7.85-inch Xiaomi tablet is expected to be launched in the third or fourth quarter of this year. It will probably be available in China first, but an international release may follow soon after...

No other OEM uses the screen resolution Apple does so I take this with trucks load of Kosher Salt.

I think this may be believable if they go for the same aspect ratio as the ipad. There is 1 or 2 Android tablets that use the ipad screen aspects. Acer and Archos I believe.

Yeah, Apple's screen resolutions always seem pretty arbitrary.

Seriously? Or you must be living in an iWorld not to know Samsung use higher resolution (and higher ppi) screen on its Tab Pro 8.4.

he didn't say BETTER resolution - he said SAME resolution.
Samsung has higher PPI and a more standard resolution. :)

So it's an iPad mini retina for 60% less price.
I'm down with that.

So its probably going to have iPad Mini with Retina Display specs, for a third of the price?
Apple is going to be f*cked up.
I see a court case coming up for "copying" their screen size and resolution. ;P

No one can own a resolution size. If that was the case then Apple would not be releasing a larger iPhone 6 with a screen size of 4.7" or 5.5".

Xiaomi is really hitting it hard and the domain they just bought is a sign of progress. Their MI 3 Smartphone was even placed on top of the list, as the most popular phone in the world by AnTuTu

Which reminds me what happened of the huawei mediapad which was shown at the mwc?

Huawei mediapad x1 is available in $400 16gb, which is a very good price for such a beastly specs...

Some phones that look similar to the Apple hardware, similar to certain UI elements of the software and now they're going with the same resolution of their tablets? Chinese OEMs still seem to have the imitation game going. I'm tired of hearing all this slack Samsung gets for mimicking Apple. Then again, these guys aren't well known anyway

So what? let the haters say whatever they can say about copy... I love copy, it is saving my hard earned money.. it is me(consumer) who is going to pay for so called innovation
