Xiaomi announced their Pad 6S Pro 12.4, alongside the Xiaomi 14 Ultra in a launch event yesterday. The naming scheme might suggest that Xiaomi is going the Apple route and will be launching a smaller (likely 11-inch) Pad 6S in the near future. In this article, let’s take a peek at the Xiaomi Pad 6S Pro including its features, specifications, price in Nepal, and availability details!

Xiaomi Pad 6S Pro Overview: 

Design and Display

Xiaomi’s Pad 6S Pro features a uniform metal body design with a rectangular camera cutout on the top right and the company’s branding on the bottom alongside magnetic connection points. It weighs nearly 100 grams lighter than Apple’s 12.9-inch iPad Pro but is still somewhat hefty at 590 grams. The tablet is available in Black, Blue, and Green colorways.

On the display side, Xiaomi Pad 6S Pro features an expansive 12.4-inch LCD display. It’s a 144Hz panel of 3048×2932 res and a 3:2 aspect ratio and has all the bells and whistles like professional color calibration (to the CIE2015 curve), Gorilla Glass 5 protection, Dolby Vision support, and more.

Performance and Memory

Xiaomi has left no stone unturned in the performance department as well. Since the top-of-the-line Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 is likely reserved for their Pad 7 Pro tablet, you get last year’s flagship Qualcomm SoC on the Pad 6S Pro. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is a 4nm octa-core chipset led by a prime Cortex X3 core at 3.2 GHz and other Cortex-A cores.

Similarly, it is complemented by a whopping (up to) 16GB of RAM and (up to) a terabyte of storage. Other memory configurations for the Xiaomi Pad 6S Pro (12.4) include 8GB and 12GB of LPDDR5X RAM, and 256GB and 512GB of UFS 4.0 storage.

Battery and Others

Another exciting part about the Pad 6S Pro is its battery life and charging speed. Under the hood, it is fueled by a massive 10,000 mAh battery that can be filled up in just 35 minutes via the 120W adapter in the box. Xiaomi has equipped the Pad 6S Pro with dual custom chips for monitoring fast charging (P2) and safeguarding battery health (G1). This should ensure the safety and longevity of the lithium cells, despite the ridiculously fast charging speed.

The tablet boots on Android 14-based HyperOS. The pins on the back can attach to Xiaomi’s magnetic keyboard folio, or more interestingly to their SUV7 EV and act as an infotainment system. Pad 6S Pro features dual cameras on the back (50MP main + 2MP depth) and a 32MP selfie camera
