Xiaomi Pad 6 Max unveiled in China with colossal 14-inch screen and 10,000 mAh battery
Samsung's decision to launch a gargantuan 14-inch tablet seems to have resonated well with the industry. Apple is expected to follow suit later, and Xiaomi decided now would be an excellent time to launch theirs. The Xiaomi Pad 6 Max isn't exactly a secret after it showed up on multiple certification websites. It has now been officially launched alongside the Mi Mix Fold 3.
The Xiaomi Tab 6 Max has a 14-inch 2.8K OLED panel clocked at 120 Hz. It has a peak brightness of 600 nits. Other specs include 10-bit colour support, HDR 10 and supports CIE 2015 CMF. It is also TUV Rhineland certified, making it easier on the eyes in long-term use. Xiaomi has also confirmed it supports multitasking via the MIUI workbench that lets users run four applications simultaneously. There are four speakers spread out across both edges for audio.
Under the hood, the Xiaomi Tab 6 Max packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, making it one of the most powerful tablets on the market. One can configure it with up to 16 GB of memory and 1 TB of storage. An earlier leak confirmed a version with 12 GB of RAM would also be available. Xiaomi's official listing states the entry-level version will have 8 GB and 256 GB of memory/storage, respectively. Xiaomi has thrown in some exciting features in its giant tablet.
The Xiaomi Tab 6 Max packs a 10,000 mAh battery that supports 67 W fast charging. Over a wire, it can also charge other peripherals, such as smartphones, at 33 Watts. The tablet can supposedly run for two days on a single charge (likely with the brightness turned all the way down and the display set at 60 Hz). One doesn't have to worry about it dying after a few days of inactivity thanks to the hibernation mode, which keeps the tablet alive for up to 43 days.
The Xiaomi Pad 6 Max's specs aren't anything to write home about, as is the case with most tablets. At the back, there's a solitary 50 MP module, while the landscape-oriented front-facing notch is populated with a 20 MP camera and a ToF sensor. Xiaomi also sells a snap-on keyboard with the Pad 6 Max, complete with an equally large trackpad. The stylus (purchased separately) has a response time of 5 ms and has 8,182 pressure points.
The base Xiaomi Pad 6 Max variant can be pre-ordered in China now, starting at RMB 3,599 (US$495). Similarly, its maxed-out version retails for RMB 4,799 (US$660). One hundred lucky winners will get the contents of their cart paid in full by Xiaomi. Unfortunately, there's no word about when the tablet will be available globally.
