Xiaomi has launched the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro refresh in China with a larger 12.4-inch display, a bigger 10,000mAh battery, and more. The Pad 5 Pro, to recall, was initially launched with an 11-inch screen. The new model is clearly aimed at giving buyers more screen real estate while keeping much of the core hardware same as before, though there are areas where Xiaomi has taken a few steps back, too. Like the 11-inch model, the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4 is also exclusive to China at the time of writing with no word on global availability.
XIAOMI PAD 5 PRO 12.4 SPECS, FEATURES

The Pad 5 Pro 12.4 is powered by the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 system-on-chip as the 11-inch model but it will only come with Wi-Fi as standard and no 5G connectivity. Software is MIUI 13.
The tablet has a 50+2MP dual camera setup on the rear and a 20MP camera on the front.
The Pad 5 Pro 12.4 has a 10,000mAh battery and supports 67W fast charging.
The tablet is compatible with first-party accessories including a smart magnetic keyboard cover and a Xiaomi stylus with built-in battery and 240 Hz touch sampling rate.
