Xiaomi has updated its tablet portfolio in China with the launch of the new next-gen Mi Pad 4. It is the successor of Mi Pad 3 and comes with various incremental upgrades. The Mi Pad 4 will be available for sale in two variants: Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi+LTE, from June 29 onwards.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Features
The Mi Pad 4 sports a pretty standard yet old-school 8-inch Full HD (1920×1200 pixels) display with 16:10 aspect ratio. The rear-end of the tablet has nothing but the camera module on the top-right corner and ‘Mi’ branding at the bottom. The volume rocker and power buttons are on the right edge.
Under the hood, the Mi Pad 4 rocks Snapdragon 660 SoC paired with 3GB/4GB LPDDR4x RAM and 32GB/64GB eMMC 5.1 storage options. Keeping the tablet up and running is the 6000mAh battery that should last for more than a day on moderate to heavy usage.
Other specifications of Mi Pad 4 include a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and HDR support and an 8MP front camera. The tablet comes running on Android Oreo-based MIUI.
