In less than 24 hours, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 will go official in China, but ahead of its release, the tablet has been listed on Xiaomi’s China website, which confirmed the device’s price, storage variants and other details. As it rumoured from the very beginning, Xiaomi will be launching a 4G variant of the Mi Pad 4 alongside the standard Wi-Fi variant. As you can clearly see in the image, the Mi Pad 4’s listing shows two variants- Wi-Fi and 4G. The Wi-Fi variant of the tablet is priced at 1399 Yuan (approx. Rs 14,800), while the listing did not reveal the price of the 4G variant. However, it’s said to cost 1599 Yuan (approx. Rs 16,785).
Other details revealed by the listing is the RAM options. The Mi Pad 4 will come with either 3GB/4GB of RAM. Earlier reports hinted at a 6GB RAM variant, but it seems like there’s no such variant. Also, this listing is of the 64GB storage variant, but the tablet might come in a 128GB storage option because it might lack the microSD card slot.
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 will be launching tomorrow in China alongside the Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro, which will be the company’s first Redmi device with a display notch. Other details revealed by the company are Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC presence in both the 4G and Wi-Fi variants- a welcome move from the MediaTek SoC we saw on the Mi Pad 3.
The Mi Pad 4 will have an 8-inch FullView display on the front which is confirmed to have 16:10 aspect ratio. Xiaomi also confirmed that the device would ship with 6000mAh battery and at the same time, it’s claiming that the battery life on the Mi Pad 4 will be better than the Mi Pad 3. The Mi Pad 3 shipped with a 6600mAh battery. The tablet will be launched in two colour options- Black and Gold.
It’s unknown at the moment whether the Mi Pad 4 will ship with MIUI 10 or not, but it’s confirmed to have various AI features, Smart Game Acceleration and Facial Recognition technology. Complete details about the handset will be revealed tomorrow.
