Display & Design
When it comes to design, the Pad Mini’s back panel has a matte appearance. While the display on the front has thin side bezels and slightly thicker top and bottom bezels for better landscape handling.
The Pad Mini has an 8.7-inch LCD display with a resolution of 1340 x 800 pixels.
Hardware & Storage
The Pad Mini is powered by an entry-level Unisoc T616 chipset, which is paired with an octa-core CPU and Mali-G57 MP1 graphics processor.
You can choose between a 3/32GB or a 4/64GB storage option. Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and Bluetooth 5.0 are additional connectivity options. On the bottom, right next to the 3.5 mm audio jack, you’ll find a USB-C port.
The Pad Mini has an 8 MP f/2.0 camera on the back panel that sits alone on a tiny rectangular island without an LED flash for photography. It also has a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video chats.
