Features of the new Xiaomi tablet

It is not a mystery that the tablet market is not precisely booming. The only real alternatives are those sold by Apple, iPads. There are other exponents, but it is not a product that Android calls too much attention. This is what Xiaomi intends to end with Xiaomi Mi Pad 4, your new tablet presented today.

The Mi Pad comes back stronger than ever

Historically, Android tablets have had nothing to do against Apple iPad. Part of this is due to the price and the niche of users, so they result in expensive products that maybe not all of us use and that do not have all the productivity possibilities that the other products already mentioned would have. This My Pad intends to end this.

We have a design without too many displays, metal construction and an aesthetic that does not hide being similar to previous generations. In the front we have the panel 8 inches in Full HD with a 4: 3 aspect ratio, which will be especially oriented towards multimedia consumption.

In the back we have a 13 Mpx camera joining with the front of 5 Mpx, without flash. It makes sense, since taking pictures with a tablet is usually not usual, and less with these dimensions. We have 3.5 mm jack (obviously) and a USB-C to charge the generous 6000 mAh battery.

Although Xiaomi tablets have never been bad, this generation was expected to make an important qualitative leap. Gone are the Mediatek times, and we enjoy now of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660, which belongs to the range of processors premium being superior to some processors of the 800 range like the 820. Performance will not be a trivial issue in this Mi Pad 4.

As for the memories we are not badly served considering the prices. We have 3 or 4 GB of RAM along with two possibilities: 32 or 64 GB expandable with micro-SD cards. Whoever buys this Mi Pad 4 will seek to consume movies, play games and so on, so storage should be improved in that regard.

Although we will not have a fingerprint reader anywhere on the tablet, we will have a face unlock Classic on Xiaomi devices. This will help us to alleviate the lack of a fingerprint reader, although seeing the price, it is quite understandable.

All this is enhanced with Android 8 Oreo and MIUI 9, the Xiaomi customization layer. Thanks to this software, we can enjoy the latest Android news along with all the improvements that MIUI 9 offers us in terms of additions. There is no complaint in this regard, although we will have to see how Xiaomi behaves in terms of support.
