It's been a little over a year since Xiaomi first announced its Mi Pad 2, and now it looks like the company may be set to release a successor — if some leaked slides are to be believed, that is. Outed by GizmoChina, the leaked presentation slides — assuming they're real — show off the Mi Pad 3 alongside details of its bigger screen, battery and overall better specs.

The first thing worth noting is that the slides indicate the Mi Pad 3 will see a bump up to a 9.7-inch display from the 7.9-inch screen that was on the previous iteration. The body is still a metal affair, with a USB Type-C port on the bottom.

An 8290mAh battery is said to be packed inside, along with an Intel Core m3-7Y30 processor, 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of storage. Support for Quick Charge 3.0 is said to be included as well. Lastly, a 16MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing shooter appear on the slides as well.

According to GizmoChina's report, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 is expected to launch on December 30 starting at ¥1999 (around $289), and will come with Windows 10 on board. A keyboard dock will also be available as an accessory should you need it.

As with all leaks and rumors of this nature, it's best to take all of this with a big grain of salt. While the leaked slides look official, nothing is set in stone until we hear confirmation from Xiaomi.
