Chinese smartphone and electronics giant Xiaomi launched an interesting and capable 10.1-inch Mi Pad 4 Plus a few months ago. The Mi Pad 4 Plus packs both a bigger display and battery when compared to the standard Mi Pad 4. Interestingly, Xiaomi was quite quick in updating the Mi Pad 4 to Android 8.1 Oreo-based MIUI 10. The tablet received the update within a few days after the launch. Shortly after, Xiaomi sent out another update that brought support for Xiaomi’s Xiao AI digital assistant.
Strangely, Xiaomi did not launch the tablet at an event and without any fanfare. The tablet was running Android 8.1 Oreo at the time of its launch. Now, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus has been spotted on Geekbench. The tablet is reportedly running the latest Android 9 Pie OS.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus Spotted On Geekbench Running Android 9 Pie
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus comes in two memory configurations: 4GB RAM + 64GB internal storage, and 4GB RAM + 128GB internal storage. The variant spotted running Android 9 Pie on Geekbench packs 4GB RAM. The Android version is mentioned as Android 9 Pie. However, it is quite likely Xiaomi could be testing their in-house MIUI 10 Android fork on the tablet.
Moreover, the details indicate the device is packing an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor. Incidentally, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus does have the SDM660 SoC, but its performance cores are clocked at 2.2GHz. However, the Geekbench listing mentions only 1.8GHz clock speed, which could belong to the efficiency cores of the Snapdragon 660.
The alleged Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus running Android 9 Pie managed a Single-Core Score of 1643 and a Multi-Core Score of 5854. These might appear a little low, but they are quite consistent with a large-screen tablet running the powerful mid-range Snapdragon 660 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM.
Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus Specifications, Features
The Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 Plus comes with a full-metal body. It features a 10.1-inch IPS LCD panel with 1920 x 1200 WUXGA Full HD resolution and a 16:10 aspect ratio.
The Snapdragon 660 processor works with an Adreno 512 GPU clocked at 650 MHz. Strangely, the Mi Pad 4 Plus does not support memory expansion. There’s a single 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera. In addition to the Face Unlock, there’s a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button below the display.
The Mi Pad 4 Plus packs a large 8,620mAh capacity battery, which Xiaomi claims is capable of delivering up to 16 hours of video playback. Connectivity features include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band, Bluetooth 5.0 Low Energy, GPS with A-GPS, GLONASS, USB Type-C, and 4G LTE.
