Lei Jun, head of Xiaomi, held an important conference in China. If part of the event was used mainly to share anecdotes from his personal life, the businessman also presented several products. The star was the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2, but let’s not forget about the new tablet either: a Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro (12.4″).
As its name suggests, this new tablet is aimed at Pros, but it stands out for a larger screen than the previous Pad 5 Pro. 12.4 inches, therefore, instead of 11 inches. Note that the LCD panel also offers a refresh rate of 120Hz for a definition ” 2.5K » 2560 x 1600 pixels, HDR 10 and Dolby Vision support with an advertised maximum brightness of 500 nits.
67W charging and 20MP front sensor
The chip inside is still a Snapdragon 870 and it’s paired with LPDDR 5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. The 10,000mAh battery is charged at a maximum output of 67W via a USB 3.2 Gen 1 port. No change compared to the other Pro model on the main sensor on the back. We stayed in a definition of 50 megapixels. Instead, at the front, for video conferencing, we go to a 20 megapixel camera.
On the interface side, we find the MIUI Pad 13 home interface that offers a taskbar and options that make it easy to partition the screen to use two applications at the same time. You can also use the tablet as a secondary display on your PC.
Accessories (keyboard, case, stylus pen) are provided to accompany this tablet.
