After releasing the Mi Pad 4 way back in 2018, Xiaomi has returned with new entries in its Mi Pad series. The new phones, the Mi Pad 5 and Mi Pad 5 Pro, were just launched in China and offer Snapdragon 800-series chipsets as well as 2.5K 120 Hz displays, with the lineup starting at the equivalent of just over US$300.

Three years after releasing the Mi Pad 4, Xiaomi is back with its next tablet lineup, the Mi Pad 5 series. The Mi Pad 5 series was just launched in an event in China, and will bring some much-needed variety to a segment that has been monopolized by Samsung and Apple for a while.

The Mi Pad 5 series sports 11" 2.5K 120 Hz displays. Sadly, though, they don't get OLED screens, and are stuck with LCD panels instead. Maximum brightness is listed at 500 nits and all phones are equipped with Dolby Vision and HDR10 support.

Display technology is where the similarities end for the most part. The Mi Pad 5 is powered by a Snapdragon 860, and sports just two cameras: a 13 MP rear camera and an 8 MP selfie camera. It features four speakers housed within a 6.85 mm/511 g body. Supplying juice is an 8720 mAh battery, with 33 W charging.

The Mi Pad 5 Pro gets a Snapdragon 870 and 5G support. Multimedia capacity is boosted over the regular Mi Pad 5 thanks to eight speakers. The Mi Pad 5 Pro gets more cameras, too—a 13 MP main camera and a 5 MP depth sensor at the back, while retaining an 8 MP selfie camera. Battery capacity is smaller than on the Mi Pad 5 at 8600 mAh, but charging is boosted up to 67 W. There's also a line-leading model, the Mi Pad 5 Pro 5G. It's equipped with a 5G modem, and exchanges the Mi Pad Pro's 13 MP camera for a 50 MP one, while adding more RAM.

Pricing details are as follows:

Mi Pad 5 4G

  • 6/128 GB: ¥1999 (US$310)
  • 6/256 GB: ¥2299 (US$355)

Mi Pad 5 Pro

  • 6/128 GB: ¥2499 (US$385)
  • 6/256 GB: ¥2799 (US$430)

Mi Pad Pro 5 5G

  • 8/256 GB: ¥3499 (US$539)

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
