Xiaomi's Mi Pad 2 looks like the iPad Mini 4 (pictures)

If imitation is the best form of flattery, Xiaomi's latest tablet is paying quite the compliment to Apple.

Xiaomi's latest tablet, the Mi Pad 2, looks mighty familiar, especially if you're a fan of Apple. The Android slate is powered by an Intel Atom X5-Z8500, has 2GB RAM and either 16GB or 64GB of onboard storage. The Chinese smartphone maker also announced a Windows 10 version, which will only be available with the 64GB configuration and is said to be capable of running the first-person shooter Counterstrike: Global Offensive. Impressive!

The tablet will come in two colours, champange gold and dark grey. An 8-megapixel camera sits on the rear.

On the front you'll find a 5-megapixel shooter. The tablet bears an uncanny resemblance to the iPad Mini 4.

Unlike Apple's iPad though, the Mi Pad 2 doesn't have a fingerprint sensor. Instead, it has the typical Home, Back and Menu keys. It also has a Type-C USB port.
