Xiaomi's Redmi Pad Pro Launches for Global Markets

 

While the Android tablet market is dominated mostly by Samsung's offerings, it's only fair to say that a lot of other OEMs have been giving consumers worthwhile choices when it comes to big-screened Android devices. Take for example the Redmi Pad Pro, which is now available for several markets and regions worldwide.

 

Priced at between $310-320 (when converted), Xiaomi's budget-friendly tablet model takes on the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A9+, which currently sits on top of Samsung's midrange tablet lineup. For hardware, the Redmi Pad Pro packs a 12-inch LCD screen with a 2560 x 1600 aspect ratio, 120Hz refresh rate, and is encased in a metal unibody. Powering the device is a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chip, with up to 8GB+256GB of RAM and storage.

As for software, the Redmi Pad Pro comes with Hyper OS, which features exclusive built-in Xiaomi apps in addition to third-party software. There are 8-megapixel cameras on both the front and rear, and the tablet runs on a large 10,000 mAh battery. Folks looking to get one for themselves can grab it in three different colors including Graphite Gray, Mint Green, and Ocean Blue.


Xiaomi has Already Sold more than 7,000 Cars

 

After a recent announcement regarding its projected EV sales numbers for 2024, Chinese manufacturer Xiaomi has revealed that it's already sold more than 7,000 units of the SU7, its first-ever electric car. The sales figures were publicly announced by company CEO Lei Jun via his social media account.

 

 

As seen in the post, the company has delivered 7,058 units of the SU7 to date, with a total of 88,063 lock-in orders. Xiaomi's SU7 EV has certainly become one of the most talked-about electric cars this year, as it represents a first for the company, which is more known for its smartphones and other consumer electronic products.

 

At a recent investor conference, it was announced that Xiaomi is targeting 100,000 deliveries of the SU7 for 2024; as such, delivery for the standard model and Max model will commence at the end of April, while the company plans to start shipping out the Pro model by the end of May.

 

Xiaomi added that its manufacturing plant - currently in development - will be completed within two phases, in addition to annual production capacity of 150,000 units for Phase 1 and Phase 2. The first phase of the plant was completed in June 2023 last year. The Xiaomi SU7 was launched back in March, and starts at around $29,800 for the standard model.


Xiaomi Mi Band 9 could be close to launch

 

Xiaomi launched the first Mi Band several years ago. The device was kind of an instant hit, thanks largely to its super cheap price tag. While the price has gone up a bit over the years, it's still very affordable and if you're looking for the latest version, the Xiaomi Mi Band 9 could be close to launching.

 

According to a report from GizChina, it appears that the Mi Band 9 was spotted recently at various certification agencies. This means that the device is being readied for a launch. There is no word on when exactly the wearable will be announced, but it looks like it could be close at hand.

 

In terms of specs, not much is known about the wearable at the moment. It will apparently still maintain the same 1.62-inch AMOLED display found on the Mi Band 8, but it is unclear if Xiaomi will upgrade it with GPS support. Even if it doesn't, the Mi Band 9 could still be a compelling purchase.

 

Like we said, the allure of the original Mi Band was its insane price of $12. The Mi Band 8 was more expensive at around $34, but considering how much Apple and Samsung are charging for their wearables, it's still a steal. Hopefully Xiaomi will maintain the price.


Early Xiaomi MIX Fold 4 specs leaked

 

Following some potential leaked specs of Xiaomi's first foldable flip phone, specs of the upcoming Xiaomi MIX Fold 4 have made their way online courtesy of the folks at Android Headlines. This is a small leak in which code in HyperOS have revealed the cameras of the handset.

 

According to the code, it references two telephoto cameras that will be part of the phone. This includes a 60MP 2x camera and a 10MP 5x periscope lens. Xiaomi won't be the first to launch a foldable with multiple telephoto cameras. Vivo has already done that with the X Fold and X Fold Plus, but it will certainly help Xiaomi stand out from the competition.

 

This includes Samsung where the cameras on the company's foldables are questionable compared to their flagship devices. Also, if the rumors are accurate, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 6 won't see any camera upgrades, giving Xiaomi a slight edge for those who care a lot about the camera quality on their phones.

 

Apart from the cameras, not much else is known about the MIX Fold 4. It will most likely use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. It could also support 100W charging with a 5,000mAh battery. The bad news is that we heard it could be exclusive to China.


The Xiaomi 14 is Now Available Worldwide

 

While the Xiaomi 14 isn't exactly a brand-new Android smartphone, a lot of potential buyers haven't exactly been able to get their hands on the phone due to it being exclusively available for China - that is until just recently. Xiaomi finally announced that the Xiaomi 14 will be available for more markets worldwide, priced starting at £849.

 

As far as looks go, the Xiaomi 14 retains the design elements of its predecessor, and comes with a compact 6.3-inch display with an impressive peak brightness of 3,000 nits. Additionally, it boasts a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, a standard feature in most current Android flagships. The phone maintains a glass and metal construction with flat edges, a design trend that we've been seeing more and more of lately.

On the back, the Xiaomi 14 houses a triple camera system comprising a 50-megapixel main sensor, a 15-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens, while the screen houses a 32-megapixel camera for video calls and selfies. Xiaomi has closely worked with Leica to give users a much-improved mobile photography experience, with a variety of built-in camera modes which are exclusive to the 14 series.

 

Under the hood, the Xiaomi 14 is powered by the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, the go-to processor for many 2024 Android flagships. While it does run Android 14, the phone comes with Xiaomi's own HyperOS user interface that comes with several upgrades to Xiaomi's apps, with a wide range of customization options. Xiaomi assures users of up to four years of major Android version upgrades, which should be ideal for folks who prefer to keep their phones for extended periods.

 

The phone comes in Black, White, and Jade Green variants, and will be available for purchase via Xiaomi's official website.
