Xiaomi introduces the Mi Pad 4, Snapdragon 660 in tow
Xiaomi officially unveiled its newest tablet, the Mi Pad 4, at an event in China earlier in the day.
The Mi Pad 4 offers an 8-inch FHD+ display. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 660, like all the rumors claimed. Considering the fact that the previous device in the series, the Mi Pad 3, opted for an MT8176, this is good news.
On the camera side, the Mi Pad 4 sports a single 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP selfie shooter. Tablets aren’t exactly the best devices for mobile photography, in any case, so this is about par. The tablet gets its juice from a 6000 mAh battery. The Mi Pad 3 featured a larger 6600 mAh unit but it also went with a significantly less efficient MediaTek processor.
The Mi Pad 4 comes in two variants: A WiFi-only one, and a pricier WiFi + LTE sibling. The base WiFi-only model comes in a 3/32 GB shell, or a 4/64 GB package. The former will cost CNY 1,099 (US$170), and the latter will set you back CNY 1,399 (US$215). The WiFi + LTE model comes in just a 4/64 GB model and has a price tag of CNY 1,499 (US$230).
All models have headphone jacks, Bluetooth 5.0, and USB Type-C ports. The devices are available in color options of Gold and Black.
