The last year’s Mi Pad 5 series was quite popular. It featured the standard Mi Pad 5, and the more expensive Mi Pad 5 Pro models. The Mi Pad 5 came with some great internals, however, what could be better than making the experience spicier by flashing another operating system to the tablet? Well, someone in China has made it a reality by flashing Windows 11 on their Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 tablet.
Windows 11 running on Mi Pad 5, which came out of the box with Android; How is that even possible? Well, not only it is possible on Mi Pad 5 but on many other devices including Lumia 950, Lumia 950 XL, Mi 8, OnePlus 6T, Mi MIX 2, Mi 6, Surface Duo / Duo 2, and others.
There is a group of independent developers that brings unofficial Windows on ARM processors. We have seen many ARM devices getting Windows 10, and now they are bringing Windows 11.
A Chinese user has exposed their Mi Pad 5 device running on the Windows 11 operating system. The exact model of the device is Mi Pad 5 (6GB+128GB), and the system version number is Windows 11 arm64 Build 25252.1010.
Mi Pad 5 Windows 11 project was in development since February
This is not the first time we are hearing that there is a Mi Pad 5 with Windows 11. In February, we first got the news that a user has flashed the Windows 11 OS to Mi Pad 5. However, it was not the best experience. There were quite a bunch of bugs and glitches; especially the lack of GPU drivers made it worst.
However, the latest news is that Mi Pad 5 can now run Windows 11 efficiently. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, touch screen, GPU, high refresh, sensor, battery, charging, and so forth are now working fine.
