Photo Announcement. Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 - a large and powerful bedside tablet

During yesterday's big event, Xiaomi introduced the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 (aka 小米平板5 Pro 12.4) tablet to the venerable Chinese public.

By and large, we have a slightly enlarged eleven-inch Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro announced a year earlier. There are not many fundamental differences between the devices.

The chipset is still the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, so we are waiting for AnTuTu around 700 thousand points and boldly classify the tablet as quite suitable for toys. Memory is fast and plenty of it, from 6 to 12 GB of RAM and 128 to 512 GB of storage. SupportNo memory card holder.

The screen has grown from 11" (351 cm²) to 12.4" (446 cm²). The resolution remains the same, 2560x1600, so the dpi has dropped from 274 ppi to 243 ppi. Screen refresh rate - up to 120 Hz.

The battery has grown from 8600 mAh to 10000 mAh. The charging speed remained extremely high - 67 W.

A set of cameras will do honor to an inexpensive smartphone. The front one has grown and now has a resolution of 20 MP (sensor Sony IMX596). There are two rear cameras left, 50 + 2 MP (main plus a depth sensor). As the main sensor, most likely, useUses inexpensive Samsung ISOCELL JN1. (In general, in the pictures, the rear camera module looks triple. But, apparently, the third eye is some kind of sensor. Perhaps an additional light sensor - the specification mentions that there are two of them).

Suddenly, there are no varieties of tablet with mobile internet support. With a high degree of probability, there is also no GPS module - it is not mentioned in the specification. There is also no standard audio output. But there are already four speakers.

And about money. ¥2999 (₽27000, $446), ¥3499 (₽31500, $520) and ¥4199 (₽37800, $624) for versions 6+128, 8+256 and 12+512 GB respectively.
