Design

The Mi Pad 4 is a compact tablet. That is what it has going for it in terms of design. Even though the screen is just a tiny bit bigger at 8 inches over the Mi Pad 3’s 7.9-inch screen, it has a smaller body. Its dimensions are given as 200.2 x 120.3 x 7.9mm. Compare that to its predecessor which measures 200.4 x 132.6 x 7mm. Xiaomi says the smaller body makes the Mi Pad 4 easy to grip with one hand.

Mi Pad 4 Dimensions

On the back of the device, the Mi Pad 4 strongly resembles the 2018 iPad with its two-tone color design. Its a nice design but it is a copy. Overall, the Mi Pad 4 looks great, particularly the black variant.

Mi Pad 4 Specs

The Mi Pad 4 has an 8-inch display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution. This is a lower resolution compared to last year’s model and this is partly because Xiaomi has switched to a 16:10 aspect ratio instead of 4:3. And to be honest, we don’t expect a 2560 x 1600 panel on a mid-range tablet.

Xiaomi has put a Snapdragon 660 AIE SoC inside the Mi Pad 4, making it the first tablet to be powered by it. There is 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of storage. There is a storage expansion slot if you need extra space.

Mi Pad 4 camera

The Mi Pad 4 has a 13MP f/2.0 rear camera with HDR and beauty mode. It also has a 5MP f/2.0 front camera that supports face recognition.

There is a USB-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, and dual-band Wi-Fi for connectivity. The LTE model has GPS and a nano-SIM slot. Both models have a 6000mAh battery.
