Xiaomi also introduced the Pad 5 series after Mi Mix 4, which had to wait three years. The series consists of a plain Wi-Fi-only plain Pad 5 and two Pad 5 Pro, one of which is Wi-fi only, while the other is also compatible with 5G.
The Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 870 chipset, while the smooth Pad 5 is powered by the Snapdragon 860 SoC, making it one of the most powerful Android tablets.
Both tablets have an 11-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. The 10-bit panels support Dolby Vision and HDR10 technology and promise 500-bit brightness and TrueTone technology.
There is a single 13 MP camera on the back of the Pad 5 tablet, while the Wi-Fi-only Pro model also comes with a 5 MP ultra-wide unit in addition to the 13 MP. However, the Pro 5G was equipped with a 50 MP central unit and the same 5 MP ultra-wide module.
Like the iPad Pro 11 and Samsung Galaxy Tab S7, it supports a magnetic keyboard and stylus purchased separately. The new Mi Pad 5 tablets are thin and light as they weigh 510 grams.
The Pad 5 Pro’s battery comes at 8,600 mAh and comes with 67W of fast charging, while the base model’s battery has become slightly more prominent at 8720mAh, but is only capable of 33W of fast charging.
It is essential to mention the four speakers, the four microphones, the Dolby Atmos support, and the MIUI for Pad system, which allows for multi-screen support.
