Mi Mix 4 was not the only highlight of Xiaomi’s recent launch event. The brand has also unveiled new tablets after three years, dubbed the Mi Pad 5 that rivals the likes of Apple’s iPad Pro and Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 lineup consists of the vanilla Mi Pad 5 and the Mi Pad 5 Pro. The former has Wi-Fi only while the latter has Wi-Fi and 5G. They are powered by the Snapdragon 860 and 870 respectively, making them the most powerful Android tablets out there. Memory options include 6GB/8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB built-in storage.
Both tablets have an 11-inch LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate and 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. These displays support 10-bit colors, HDR10, Dolby Vision, 500 nits peak brightness, and TrueTone technology for adaptive brightness and colors to ambient light.
The Mi Pad 5G has a single 13MP primary camera on the back, but the WiFi version adds a 5MP ultrawide camera. The Pro Model has a 50MP primary camera instead but keeps the 5MP ultrawide sensor. The selfie camera is an 8MP shooter on both devices.
The base model gets an 8,720 mAh battery while the Pro model gets a slightly smaller 8,600 mAh cell. However, the vanilla model is limited to 33W fast charging while the Pro model goes up to 67W.
The Mi Pad 5 lineup also supports a magnetic keyboard and stylus like other tablets in its class.
The vanilla Mi Pad 5 will have a starting price of $310, whereas the Mi Pad 5 Pro will start at $385.
