8,729mAh battery! Will Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 be the tablet with the strongest battery life?

Since the release of Mi Pad 4 in 2018, this product line has not been updated for nearly three years. Recently, news of the new Xiaomi tablet has been reported frequently, and a blogger exposed the news that the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 is going to be launched.

The blogger said that Mi Pad 5 will use a dual-cell design with a battery capacity of 8720mAh. According to previous news, the Pro version of the new tablet will use the Snapdragon 870 processor, and the normal version will use the Dimensity 1200 processor. The screen of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 will increase from the previous 8-inch to 11-inch, using the newly designed MIUI for Pad system, adding the Handheld PC function and more gesture operations.


According to the current information, I boldly speculate that the new Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 will again be an accurate positioning and cost-effective tablet. In terms of processor, the Xiaomi tablet will not use the flagship Snapdragon 888 processor, implying that this tablet will not be full of materials on all hardware, but hopes that a reasonable configuration can be used in exchange for a lower market price.

In terms of batteries, the dual-cell and large battery design are believed to solve the pain points of tablet charging. Take Apple as an example, even if the high-end 2020 iPad Pro uses the 18W fast charging solution, it still takes nearly 3 hours to fully charge from 0%. On the one hand, slow charging is due to the limitation of charging power, on the other hand, it is also because the capacity of the flat battery is usually large. At present, Xiaomi’s dual-cell solution has been adopted on its own mobile phones, and there is no surprise if the new tablet is used.

The optimization of the system will also enhance the competitiveness of the Xiaomi tablet. For a long time, Android tablets have been criticized for system and software adaptation. Even if the number of users in the tablet market is far less than that in the mobile phone market, Xiaomi has not forgotten to upgrade the system, hoping that the new MIUI for Pad system can bring users a better experience.


It is not difficult to find the inextricable connection between Xiaomi and MIX FLOD by adding the Handheld PC function to the tablet. Xiaomi can occupy a larger tablet market with cost-effectiveness as a selling point. As the number of users increases, developers will be more willing to adapt to Xiaomi’s tablet system. To a certain extent, this will improve the application ecology of MIX FLOD, which is also a large screen, and enhance the competitiveness of Xiaomi folding screen phones in similar products.
