Xiaomi launched MIUI 10 in May. However, the tablet Mi Pad 4 released in June arrived with MIUI 9. Now it seems that the stable version of the MIUI 10 will soon arrive at this device.
The global beta of MIUI 10 has a version number 8.7.5. The last two numbers indicate that the beta update has only five days. The update is 1.21 GB and stands out early on for improved design and promises faster performance than MIU 9.
It is important to note that although MIUI 10 brings gesture support to the device, these actions only work on smartphones and not on this tablet.
In addition to the Mi Pad 4, the other Xiaomi devices that will receive the MIUI 10 global beta 8.7.5 are Mi 6, Mi Mix 2, Redmi S2, Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi Note 5, Mi MIX 2S, Mi 5, Mi Note 2 and Mi MIX. The global MIUI 10 beta 8.7.5 also includes the LDAC for Bluetooth devices.
The Mi Pad 4 is a compact tablet. Even though the screen is a bit larger, 8 inches as opposed to the 7.9-inch Mi Pad 3, this device has a smaller body.
More specifically the dimensions are 200.2 x 120.3 x 7.5mm, as opposed to the predecessor that has 200.4 x 132.6 x 7 mm. It is true that the difference, looking at the numbers is not exactly too much. However, it makes it easy to use from one hand device.
The back of the Mi Pad 4 reminds in large scale the look of the iPad 2018. It’s a nice design, but it’s a copy. Overall, the Mi Pad 4 has a very attractive design, particularly the black variant.
Mi Pad 4: Specifications
The Mi Pad 4 features an 8-inch screen with 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution. This is a lower resolution compared to last year’s model and is related to the fact that the Chinese manufacturer has changed to a ratio of 16:10 instead of 4: 3.
