Xiaomi may have announced the price cut now, but the Mi Pad has been offered for much less during numerous sales.

Xiaomi Mi Pad specifications and features: The tablet features a 7.9-inch (2048 1536 pixels) display with a pixel density of 326ppi, and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection. Under the hood is a 2.2GHz K1 processor with 192-core Kepler GPU, paired with 2GB of RAM.
The tablet also features 16GB internal storage, microSD card slot, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, and a non-removable 6,700mAh battery. On the software front, it runs on MIUI 6.
It remains to be seen whether the price cut has anything to do with the India launch of the Mi Pad 2, which was launched in China last year. The new tablet features a 7.9-inch (2048 1536 pixels) IPS display, 2.24GHz Intel Atom x5-Z8500 quad-core chipset, 2GB RAM, and 16GB and 64GB storage options.
The Mi Pad 2 also features an 8-megapixel f/2.0 camera, 5-megapixel wide angle selfie camera, 6,190mAh battery, and connectivity options like Wi-Fi 802.11ac and USB Type-C port. Xiaomi has launched two variants of the tablet, one that runs on Android Lollipop-based MIUI 7, while the other runs on Windows 10.
