Mi Pad 4 Could Get Back Xiaomi to Winning Ways in the Tablet Market

Xiaomi has launched its Mi Pad 4 tablet in China today. The main highlight of the tablet is its price and the hardware it packs inside. So far Xiaomi released three tablets- Mi Pad, Mi Pad 2 and the Mi Pad 3. But the Mi Pad 3 wasn’t a great success for the company because of the hardware it offered, but that will surely change with the Mi Pad 4. The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 has the Snapdragon 660 AIE SoC inside, 8-inch display on the front, Bluetooth 5.0 and more importantly, Xiaomi released an LTE variant too. All these features come at an affordable price of 1099 Yuan (approx. Rs 11,500). But for now, the tablet’s availability is limited to the Chinese market itself, hopefully, Xiaomi brings this device to the Indian market to capture some market share in the Indian tablet space which is fading away with every passing quarter.


Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Specifications and Features
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 sports an 8-inch Full HD display, carrying a resolution of 1200 x 1920 pixels and 1200:1 contrast ratio. Xiaomi has added various display modes such as eye mode, standard mode, enhanced mode, adaptive mode, and more to enhance the viewing experience. This tablet is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, which is one of the best mid-range SoCs available from Qualcomm. Xiaomi has launched the tablet in two variants with 3GB of RAM & 32GB of internal storage and with 4GB of RAM & 64GB of internal storage.

The Mi Pad 4 has a 13MP shooter on the rear side with f/2.0 aperture and it’s capable of recording 1080p videos at 30fps. A 5MP shooter is present on the front side. Xiaomi has added AI-based Face Unlock feature to the tablet, and the camera app comes bundled with features such as HDR mode, AI Beautify mode and more.


Connectivity options in the Mi Pad 4 include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and a USB Type-C port. Xiaomi even released an LTE variant of the tablet which is priced slightly higher than the Wi-Fi variant. Xiaomi has added a 6000mAh battery to the tablet, which coupled with the power-efficient Snapdragon 660 SoC is promised to deliver better battery life than the Mi Pad 3 despite sporting a smaller battery. Xiaomi also added a Smart Game Acceleration feature to increase the gaming performance on the tablet.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Pricing and Availability
As we already know, Xiaomi’ products always pack great specifications, but what makes the products special is the pricing.

The main cons of Mi Pad 4 is no rear camera flash and it is not stock android remaining all futures SD 660, LTE model battery power and price all dominating comparatively tab market. If xiaomi release to indian model with rear camera flash and also at least it should be MIUI regular updates release for this tab. It is possible as a leader in Indian market.
