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.
