Specs Comparison: Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 vs Xiaomi Pad 5
Despite the fact that both tablets are from the same series (albeit the latest one launched a year after the predecessor), they have very different looks due to their separate camera modules. The Xiaomi Pad 5 includes a camera module identical to the Xiaomi Mi 11, while the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 has a design similar to the Xiaomi 12. They do, however, have certain characteristics in common: First and foremost, they are extremely thin (the Pro variant is thinner with just 6.7 mm against 6.9 mm).
These two tablets’ screens have nearly identical characteristics, yet they differ in size. Because of its large display, the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 may appeal to productivity users. Because it is simpler to work with the most complex apps and exploit the user interfaces designed expressly for tablets, all of the most important tablets for business and productivity have a display with a diagonal more than 12 inches. In addition to a pen, the Pro model has a keyboard. The primary display specifications remain the same, with a Quad HD+ resolution of 1600 x 2560 pixels, a refresh rate of 120 Hz, HDR10 certification, and Dolby Vision support.
The processor in the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 is actually more powerful than the one on the vanilla model. It is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 mobile platform with an octa-core architecture and a 7 nm manufacturing technology. The processor is made up of a Kryo 585 CPU with a maximum frequency of 3.2 GHz, three Kryo 585 CPUs with a frequency of 2.42 GHz, four Kryo 585 CPUs with a frequency of 1.8 GHz, and an Adreno 650 CPU. The SoC is supported by up to 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of native storage (UFS 3.1, to be accurate). The standard Xiaomi Pad 5 has a Snapdragon 860 CPU and just 6 GB of RAM, therefore it cannot match in terms of performance.
The Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 also includes a few camera upgrades. It has a superior 50 MP primary camera combined with a 2 MP depth sensor, as well as a 20 MP selfie shooter on the front. It has a far better camera setup than the Xiaomi Pad 5, which has a dismal 13 MP primary sensor and an 8 MP selfie shooter. The Pro model does not include a high-end camera, but it is more than enough.
Since it is larger, the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 also has a bigger battery. It is one of the greatest tablets in terms of battery life, with a capacity of 10,000 mAh. It also charges faster with 67W fast charging. The vanilla version has a lower 8720 mAh battery with 33W fast charging, but it still offers a long battery life and fast charging.
