Xiaomi recently unveiled the Mi Pad 4 with some vital upgrade over the Pad 3, including Snapdragon 660 chip, 6000mAh battery and an LTE version. Despite these features, some fans were not impressed with the Pad 4. Perhaps, Xiaomi saved the best for the last as the Chinese giant sprung up a surprise by launching the Mi Pad 4 Plus a couple of days back. The tablet is scheduled to go on its first sale in China tomorrow at 10 AM, Xiaomi has revealed.
The Mi Pad 4 Plus comes with an expansive 10.1-inch display with a similar 16:9 aspect ratio as the Mi Pad 4 and a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. It is also powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 AIE chipset but in this case, the memory configuration is only 4GB RAM + 64GB storage combo as well as 4GB RAM+128GB storage. Another spectacular upgrade is in the battery capacity. Xiaomi notched the battery size to an 8,620mAh capacity which can withstand up to 16 hours of video playback. It equally packs a 13Mp rear shooter and a 5MP front sensor with support for AI face recognition. It comes with both WiFi and LTE connectivity.
As for the price, the 64GB variant is available for 1,899 yuan (~$275) while the 128GB version is priced at 2099 yuan (~$305). The tablet comes in gold and black colours. It is expected to be available across several retail channels including Mi Home. We expect nothing short of a quick exhaustion of all available stock.
