Xiaomi held another new product launch conference. In addition to releasing the Mi 13 Ultra mobile phone with a super-large image cup, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 6 series was officially unveiled after two years and eight months. The Dragon 8+ processor is the first product to use the Snapdragon flagship chip in a domestic tablet, and the price starts at only 2,499 yuan. IGeekPhone has already obtained this tablet, so let’s show you how it performs.
The packaging of the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro adopts a simple white style. In addition to the tablet body, this time, it is equipped with a 67W fast charging adapter and a USB-A to C cable as standard accessories. The difference is that Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro’s bottom interface is no longer USB2.0 but has been upgraded to 3.2 Gen1. It is possible to output images generally by connecting the monitor with dual C cables, and the DP to C cable is also supported.
Uncovering the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro protective bag, the first impression is that the metal texture is firm. Compared with the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Pro, it is significantly improved. From the feel and visual point of view of the rear shell material, it is comparable to the previous generation of a 12.4-inch large screen. The version is closer but noticeably lighter in hand.
Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro still adopts the phone’s square shape, and the back shell’s edge has a strong sense of presence when holding it. Fortunately, it has been chamfered so that it will not feel uncomfortable. The body thickness of the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is 6.5mm, and the weight of the bare metal is about 486g, which is relatively thin and light among similar products. Came to 990g.
What we got this time is gold. According to the previous official renderings, there are distant blue and black mountains. This golden color is not darker and richer but has a slightly warmer feeling under the light, and the elegant color matching will appear more advanced. In terms of vision, Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro maintains a restrained and minimalist style. In addition to the eye-catching square lens module of the Mi 13, there is only one uppercase XIAOMI Logo and three metal contacts for connecting the keyboard protective case.
We can see the words 50MP on the square lens module. Although most people don’t take pictures with a tablet if butdon’tou want to use it to take photos of courseware, documents, or certificates, high resolution still has certain advantages. However, when you place the tablet horizontally on the table in daily use, the protrusion of the lens module will prevent the body from being completely flat without shaking. It is recommended to use it with a case.
Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro maintains the design of four stereo speakers. There are two sets of openings on the left and right sides of the middle frame, and the symmetrical positions are relatively loud. And because the back shell and the intermediate shelf are not a splicing structure but a wrapping structure, and all the antenna strips have been removed, the visual and hand-feeling integration is very prominent.
Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro also has a power button with a fingerprint recognition function, unlocking quickly. You can press the power button with your fingerprinted finger to open it naturally. In the form of use, it is recommended that you enter at least two fingerprints to facilitate the unlocking experience under different holding postures. In addition, after entering fingerprints, when installing applications from third-party download channels, fingerprints can also be used for authorized installation verification.
Coming to the front, Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro has an 11-inch LCD screen with a 2.8K resolution. The screen’s physical frame and screen-to-body ratio are consistent with the previous generation, and the screen ratio is still 16:10. The part that transitions to the frame around the screen is a circle of black plastic anti-vibration bracket wrapped.
In terms of accessories, Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro comes standard with the keyboard above the case and a new generation of Xiaomi-inspired stylus. Among them, the Xiaomi Smart Touch Keyboard adopts an integrated design and is available in black and white. This Xiaomi bright touch keyboard generation supports adaptive backlight adjustment and a glass touchpad with a global pressing function. The touch area has also increased by 16%, and it supports independent ESC keys, which can further improve operating efficiency.
On the back of the Xiaomi Smart Touch Keyboard, there is a bracket that supports 110°-165° large-angle opening and closing, which can make the use angle of the tablet more flexible.
Xiaomi has also added an NFC functional area that supports one-touch transfer to the wrist rest of the touch version. As long as the mobile phone and the tablet are turned on simultaneously, NFC can be used to directly touch the identification area with the mobile phone to quickly transfer pictures to each other, which is very convenient.
The Xiaomi-inspired stylus has also made some upgrades, such as ultra-low latency, 150 hours of continuous writing, and 5g sensitive ink output. When the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is used with a keyboard case, the magnetic area on the top will The stylus can be easily and quickly stored and charged, and it can be written for 7 hours after setting it for 1 minute very safely.
Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is equipped with a domestic screen this time, with 2K resolution, 144Hz refresh rate, and 16:10 screen ratio, with a PPI of 309, making its user experience closer to that of a notebook screen, and the display is more delicate. It goes without saying.
The refresh rate supports seven variable adjustments, such as 30/48/50/60/90/120/144Hz, which applies to a broader range of usage scenarios. Interestingly, although this is an LCD screen, the official provides a low-flicker mode in the developer options: full-scale DC dimming coupled with hardware-level low blue light design; this screen is also suitable for eye protection. Effort.
In terms of color, Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro supports 10-bit color depth, P3 wide color gamut and factory color correction, HDR10, Dolby Vision, etc. The display settings provide primary professional color and accurate color display options, and advanced settings allow users to customize the color temperature tendency. Mode considered more comprehensively. The system display settings provide functions such as super-resolution, video frame insertion, and image quality enhancement. Through these options, it can be seen that Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro attaches great importance to the display effect.
In the professional primary color mode, this screen has 93.2% of the sRGB color gamut, 64.6% of the Adobe RGB, and 66.4% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and the results under the sRGB color gamut option in the advanced mode Also, relatively close.
However, when we switched to the P3 color gamut, the sRGB color gamut coverage increased to 99.8%, and the Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 color gamut coverage also increased to 82.2% 97.1%, so friends who pursue rich colors can open this P3 color gamut mode.
We also tested the screen color accuracy in the P3 color gamut mode. The average Delta E is 0.55, the maximum Delta E is 1.29, and the screen brightness is 450nit, which belongs to professional-level color performance. The problem with the color cast, the viewing angle is enormous; in the experience, except for the slight black overflow of the LCD physical frame, other aspects of the performance can’t be faulted.
Hardware & Performance
When other companies still use the thcan’tensity series flagship chip or the more classic Snapdragon 870, Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is the first to adopt the high-end flagship chip of Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 + on the tablet, which will undoubtedly go further for tablet products. Raise its upper limit of performance; after all, the version of Snapdragon 8+ on mobile phones is relatively good. Otherwise, it will not become the chip of choice for the current cost-effective flagships.
In addition, Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is also equipped with LPDDR5 memory and UFS3.1 flash memory, an 8600mAh large battery, and 67W fast charging. These configurations are undoubtedly prepared for heavy tablet entertainment and game scenarios. Among the current tablet products in the Android camp, The design of the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is relatively advanced. Of course, whether the actual performance is reliable or not depends on the test.
Since the Snapdragon 8+ is widely used, let’s briefly look at the theoretical performance of the GeekBench6 running points inlets. The single-core score of the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro reached 1726 points, and the multi-core score got 4392 points. It is higher than other Snapdragon 8+ mobile phones with similar configurations. Compared with the Dimensity 9000 chip, it has more advantages. Compared with the latest flagship chip Snapdragon 8 Gen2, the single-core difference is only about 200 points. It can be said that it is still very capable of playing.
Then we pass the Wild Life Extreme Stress Test of 3D Mark to see how stable the continuous performance output of the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is. After 20 rounds of stress testing, the performance of the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is very durable, and the score curve is pulled into a line Straight line; the stability is as high as 98.3%, which is especially outstanding in tablet products, and has advantages compared with Dimensity chip machines.
After reading the theoretical performance test, let’s see how well the game performs. We chose television 3.6 of “Yuanshin God,” which reflects the heavy load. The test condition is an in”our Wi-Fi environment television. Yuanshen turned on the highest image quality plus 60 frames, turned off motion blur, and selected the performance mode of Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro game assistant, separately setting the GPU parameters of Yuanshen to high quality, that is, the highest resolution.
This time we went directly to the new desert map of Sumeru for testing. After about 20 minutes of land reclamation and fighting monsters, the pressure on the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro was still not small. When encountering a sandstorm, the lowest dropped to about 30 frames, but the overall frame rate curve is still solid; the final average frame rate is 59.3 frames, there are not many lags in the game, and the overall game experience is very comfortable.
Of course, comfort refers to frame rate, picture quality, touch delay, and temperature. Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is easy to control after opening the game toolbox-Yuanshin advanced settings-expert mode when playing Yuanshin. It is essential for tablet players. After all, the operation convenience of tablets is weaker than that of mobile phones, and the highest temperature of the body during games is only 41.3 degrees. Even if the frame and back shell is made of metal, there will be no “baked” Trotters.” Trouble.
Another point that is also very h”helpful” to the game” ng experience is the high-frequency game memory freezing and startup acceleration functions of Xiaomi Pad 6, Prgamewhich allows the background resident games to be swapped to virtual memory (flash memory) to keep alive, such as the original The god background stays for 30 minutes, and there are still 11 background application cards, and the game can still be resumed directly. There is a small probability that the six elements will be read, but it is much faster than restarting.
In terms of the system, MIUI for Pad did not mention much in the press conference this time, but there are still some optimizations in functions and details.
First, the conference toolbox in this mode has the same trigger logic as the video toolbox. It has five built-in functions: fill light, portrait centering, subtitle transcription, call noise reduction, and ultra-clear mode. The last two functions are easy to understand, and the first three are briefly explained.
The fill light mode has a specific effect in some low-light environments with poor light sources. The subtitle transcription function can easily record the speech content of the participants and convert it into a simple text speech, which is convenient for the minutes and review after the meeting. It supports proper source selection, language switching, custom text styles, etc. After the session, a prompt window will pop up automatically asking if you want to save it as a document, which is convenient and practical.
After the portrait centering function is enabled, the camera will automatically switch from the wide-angle to the portrait perspective with more people, and the people will be locked in the center of the lens. At this time, if the participants move their bodies and change their original positions, the camera will also track them in real-time. The switching process is very smooth.
The second is the 8,000 large-screen application optimizations mentioned at the press conference. I tried the Douyin live demonstration. After opening it, the video’s horizontal version will be recommended first to ensure the large screen’s space utilization and user experience.
However, the comments mentioned at the press conference do not occupy the screen and will pop up from the right. This point is not yet implemented in the current version and should be added in the subsequent official version. Fortunately, the mainstream long video platforms have already done an excellent job of horizontal screen adaptation, and there is no frame lock, and there is no obvious problem in the experience.
Under the premise of the current Android tablet market environment, Mi Pad 6 Pro is a product that is stacked and balanced on the hardware as much as possible and gradually completes the functions and perfect experience on the software, which is commonly known as the bucket machine.
As far as the results are concerned, the appearance design of the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro is not very brilliant, but at least it can’t go wrong. The screen and performance experience is remarkable, andcan’ttexture of the accessories is further enhanced, making up for the shortcomings. It should be said. It is a more genuine product, and it is also a product suitable for a good life.
