News Xiaomi Mi Pad 4: first details about the new Xiaomi tablet

A new day, fresh information about an upcoming Xiaomi device. After only recently introducing the Xiaomi 6X, the manufacturer is only planning a successor to the Xiaomi Mi Pad 3, and the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 will even come with the powerful Snapdragon 660 processor, just like the Mi 6X!

Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 Tablet Display

The detail is in the firmware

Xiaomi itself has officially not published any information about a possible release. The XDA developers, on the other hand, have read out a firmware that provides clear indications of a new Xiaomi Mi Pad 4. For example, the source code contains information such as “is_pad”, a value that is set to “true”. Just as the value “tablet” can be found under ro.build.characteristics. Some of them also suspected the Xiaomi Mi Max 3, but these details speak a different language and speak for a tablet.

More interesting, however, are the possible specifications that the developers were able to read out. Because Xiaomi could really dare something with this display. Allegedly an LC-display with 18:9 aspect ratio is installed. This 2:1 aspect ratio has meanwhile established itself with smartphones, we have not seen this with tablets so far. The pixel density should be 320 pixels per inch. How this will be converted into screen diagonal and resolution remains uncertain.

The Xiaomi Mi Pad 3 came in the classic 4:3 display format.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 with strong CPU

The processor is almost certainly the Snapdragon 660 processor, which is also used in the Xiaomi Mi 6X and Mi Note 3. This is a powerful eight-core processor consisting of 260 cryo cores with a maximum clock frequency of 2 GHz. Since we could already test this CPU in the Mi Note 3, we can speak from experience that it is a strong processor! Details of a possible memory configuration do not yet exist. However, it is clear that the device has a 6,000 mAh battery.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 CPU

Of course, Xiaomi also wants to use cameras that are rather secondary to a tablet. The main camera is the Omnivision OV13855 sensor with 13 megapixels and a ƒ/2.0 aperture including Portait mode. A 5 megapixel sensor called Samsung S5K5E8 is in use on the front panel. It is also very likely that the Mi Pad 4 will be available with Android 8.1 and the latest MIUI interface.

Outlook

Since the leaks of the XDA developers have often been true so far, we are confident that Mi Pad 4 will be released soon. After all, the Mi Pad 3 is now over one and a half years old and sold out everywhere. How do you feel about a possible successor? Redundant or overdue?
