After being leaked on China’s most popular social media website, Weibo, the Mi Pad 4 is set to be launched on the 25th of June, according to an official poster released by Xiaomi.
Mi Pad 4
Based on previous leaks and reports, the fourth generation of Xiaomi’s Mi Pad tablet is expected to sport an 8-inch LCD display with a Full-HD resolution an a pixel density of 320 PPI. A leaked firmware also suggested that the tablet would sport a display with the taller 18:9 aspect ratio but there’s no confirmation yet.
Xiaomi claims that the Mi Pad 4 will be built in a way that it will be one-hand usage friendly which seems to be a little bit of a stretch (quite literally) as a tablet isn’t intended to be used single-handedly anyhow. The Mi Pad 4 could be powered by the powerful Snapdragon 660 chipset found on devices like the Vivo X21, the Nokia 7 Plus and Xiaomi’s own Mi 6X, clocked at either 2.0 or 2.2 GHz. The RAM/Storage configurations are yet to be known. Given that the Mi Pad 3 did not have a slot for memory expansion, the chances of the Mi Pad 4 having it are slim.
On the camera front, the Mi Pad 4 is expected to come with 13MP sensor to the back while the front-facing shooter settles for a 5MP unit. The tablet is said to be running on Android 8.1 Oreo with Xiaomi’s MIUI skin on top. It would be interesting to see if the Mi Pad 4 comes with the recently announced MIUI 10 out of the box. The device is said to be powered by a mammoth 6000mAh battery, which given that it’s powering a tablet with a big display, makes a lot of sense.

The official teaser released by Xiaomi hints at a 19:9 display indicating the presence of a notch which coincides with leaked images of the device previously. Not just the aspect ratio of the display, the poster also reveals a lot of other information regarding the smartphone, like the implementation of AI, a Snapdragon 625 chipset which Xiaomi clearly has a truckload of, and a 4000mAh battery.
The TENAA listing of the device reveals that the Redmi 6 Pro will sport a metallic body with a fingerprint scanner housed at the back along with a dual 12MP camera setup. On the front, there is a 5.84-inch Full HD+ display along with a 5MP front-facing camera. It is expected to be available in three configurations – 2GB/16GB, 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. For additional storage, it will be featuring a microSD card slot. The software will be taken care of by MIUI 10 running on top of Android 8.1 Oreo. As with the Mi Pad 4, the pricing and availability of the Redmi 6 Pro will be revealed on the 25th of June.
The Xiaomi Mi Max 3 was also spotted a couple of days back on TENAA, hinting at a launch soon. We’ll have to wait and see if Xiaomi also decides to launch the phablet along with the Mi Pad 4 and the Redmi 6 Pro on the 25th. Watch out for our detailed coverage on these devices once they’re out, and let us know if you would like to see these devices in India.
