Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 might feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor
According to Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, the successor of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 is currently in the research and development stage. Not too long ago, the CEO and co-founder of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, confirmed that the company was pursuing a new tablet, but without mentioning a name.
Now, the official Xiaomi website no longer contains any references to tablets, although the Mi Pad 3 arrived about a year ago. On the other hand, XDA Developers has just revealed that, according to information contained by firmware files they received from a trustworthy source, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor.
In addition to the brand and model of the processor, the firmware files mentioned above also revealed — or at least suggested — a battery capacity of 6,000 mAh, an LCD display with 320 dpi and an aspect radio of 2:1, MIUI 9 software based on Android 8.1 Oreo, a 5 MP Samsung front camera with f/2.0, and a 13 MP OmniVision main camera with f/2.0 and Portrait mode.
At last, we should also mention the lack of NFC connectivity and the surprising presence of a microSD slot, but all these have to be taken with a grain of salt for the time being. In the end, you might want to take a look at the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 — which is still a worthy device — although finding a new one for sale could be a tough challenge.
