Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus Officially Announced with 10.1-Inch Display & Massive Battery

Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus

Almost two months back, on June 25th, Xiaomi launched the Mi Pad 4, a solid tablet with a powerful Snapdragon 660 SoC, great loudspeakers and a bright fully laminated display. Well, today the Chinese tech giant released its bigger brother – the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus, a device that brings upgrades in terms of screen and battery size.

The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus does indeed boast a larger 10.1-inch (1920×1200) display with an ultra-narrow bezel design, it’s still equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chip along with 4GB of RAM and up to 128GB of internal storage. Plus we find a 13MP rear shooter, a 5MP selfie snapper and a fingerprint scanner on the front.

What’s really exciting though is the increased battery capacity at 8620mAh, which is set to bring some pretty sweet Screen-On-Times. Xiaomi did indeed reveal that the Mi Pad 4 Plus will be able to continuously play videos for 16 hours, you can read text for 18 and play games for 10 hours, which means around one day of really heavy usage.

  1. The WiFi regulatory domain on the Mi Pad 4 Plus seems to be locked to CN. This means you have to configure your router to use one of the 5GHz channels allowed in China (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_WLAN_channels). Sadly only 20MHz bandwidth channels are available and I don’t want to slow down my other devices 🙁

    Does anybody have a workaround? I can’t root till next month to play around myself.

  2. I’d love to see a comparison video of Xiaomi mi pad 4 VS Huawei media pad m5 and mediapad m5 pro

  3. hello chris, does this mi pad support any kind of stylus? if it does is it good for drawing? im currently using wacom intuos but it doesnt have display like pen display, i have it enough…
    i used to buy mipad 2 but that tablet sucks…too buggy and i give it to my bro

  4. Any updates here?
    (Saw it was promised to be updated 16th of August – but Xiaomi page is completely void of Pad info, neither the Mi Pad 4 nor 4 plus is in there)

  5. Will this support Netflix in HD?

  6. Everything looks great, except the screen specs. A 1920 X 1200 display at 224 PPI? Come on , Xiaomi!

  7. damn i will probably have to cancel my alldocube x preorder

    • To be fair, that one will probably have the better screen, and still has a quite decent chipset.

    • You might want to consider the following:
      1. Super AMOLED 2560 x 1600 vs. IPS LCD 1920 x 1200
      2. SD card slot vs. none
      3. Fast charging vs. none

      To Xiaomi’s credit:
      1. Bigger battery
      2. Lighter weight
      3. Black bezels

      • Well, it does have a MicroSD card slot on the left. Like a SIM tray style.

        • Are you sure? From what I have read, that is indeed a SIM tray for the LTE version. It’s not a card slot.

          • The official page on mi.com states it as an expansion slot. So I would think MicroSD support.

      • But also better software support on Xiaomi side. Xiaomi will probably solve most of the bugs with software update and also Mi Pad 4 will receive new MIUI versions for 1-2 years. Also kernel sources will probably be released and there will be many custom ROMs for years to come.

        On the other side Alldocube will try to solve some bigger bugs with 1-2 updates and that will be all, no Android version updates, no custom ROMs and not all bugs will be solved.

        I have Chuwi Hi12 and it is excellent tablet, but there was only 1-2 software updates and that’s it. I have issues with Wi-Fi on Android when tablet can not connect to my network for not apparent reason even though signal is strong and all other devices are connected. It is well known problem which many users have and no one has found solution and Chuwi did not provide update for it. Also even after great many requests Chuwi didn’t wanted to release Kernel sources, so that custom ROMs can be made.

        I expect something similar with Alldocube as it is with Chuwi.

  8. Looks good, just a larger version of the Mi Pad 4 I reviewed, but with a fingerprint reader for added security. That Battery will be amazing as the 6000mah in the Mi Pad 4 is good for 10 hours use already. I’ll have to order one to review.

    • Do you think that in near future Xiaomi will present something simmilar to IPad pro? Seems that every tablet what they do is a little copy of apple tablets.

      • What do you mean ? What are the specs you are looking for ?

        • Or features *

          • I am looking for a tablet with Windows 10 or android, minimim 12,5 inch, max 13,5 with the screen ratio 3:2, eventually 4:3.
            As far I found in my opinion the only one which offers good parameters for the price is voyo vbook i7 Pro. Chris tested i5 version (which doesn’t have i5 cpu…)
            Maybe you have some suggestions?
