Xiaomi has just debuted the Xiaomi Pad 5 and Pad 5 Pro alongside the Mix 4. The two new tablets are the company’s first tablets in three years.
Both tablets are built around an 11-inch display with 2560×1600 pixel resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. They support Dolby Vision and HDR10 and are said to have a peak brightness of 500 nits. The panels also have TrueTone technology which helps with adapting the colors and brightness to ambient light.
The duo supports a magnetic keyboard cover and the Xiaomi stylus. The stylus features two buttons on its side and offers a 240Hz touch sampling rate. It weighs 12.2g and is said to offer 8 hours of use.
They both run on MIUI that has been adapted for tablets and brings multi-screen support for over 300 apps.
