Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 PortsThe most notable new feature comes with the Qualcomm processor, as AFAIK Mi Pad 4 is the first Xiaomi tablet to feature cellular connectivity, and in this case 4G LTE (Cat 12 for downlink: 600 Mbps max; Cat 13 for uplink:  150 Mbps max). Other changes include a slightly larger screen (8″ vs 7.9″) at a lower resolution (Mi Pad 3 was 2048 x 1536), Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, and buil-in AI face recognition technology likely leveraging Hexagon 680 DSP. The micro SD slot is back from the dead, as it was missing in both Mi Pad 2 & 3, the battery has a 10% smaller capacity, and the device is both slightly more compact due to smaller top and bottom bezels, and around 20 grams heavier.

The OS has been upgraded to MIUI 9 based on Android 8.x Oreo. Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 is sold for 1099 RMB and up ($165.5) in China, but we’ll also find it on GeekBuying from $239.99 (3GB/32GB/WiFI) up to $319.99 (4GB/64GB/LTE) with international shipping. GearBest is also taking pre-orders but at a higher price : $375.99 for the 4G LTE version. You may visit the product page  in Chinese for a few more details.
