It’s everything the Xiaomi Pad 6 is but with injected steroids.
The Xiaomi Pad 6 stunned several Filipino tech fans thanks to its flagship-like chipset and very efficient price. Well, it turns out that’s not even its final form. There is the Pad 6 Max, which is the epitome of the series.
Launched in China on August 14th, the Pad 6 Max has a large (for a tablet) 14″ 2.8K 10-bit LTPS LCD screen with 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+ support, and Dolby Vision support. You may have a hard time holding this efficiently due to that massive screen size, so it can easily drop. Luckily, this screen uses Corning Gorilla Glass 5 to protect itself from scratches and some levels of drops.
The tablet uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset. Not the latest flagship chip from Qualcomm but still very competitive thanks to its efficient 2nd-gen 4nm TSMC process. This chipset is shared from the 11-inch Pro variant and comes with up to 16GB RAM and 1TB ROM. There are also 8/256, 12/256, and 12/512 configurations to choose from, at least in China, where it launched.
Tablets, even the most expensive ones, are not really used for taking pictures and companies would rather save those resources on other important aspects, such as pen support, performance, and battery technologies. The 50MP + 2MP setup on the Pad 6 Max is pretty impressive for a tablet alongside it’s Hi-Res 20MP selfie camera. Good luck taking a picture on this large bulky tablet.
The Pad 6 Max has a large 10,000mAh battery with 67W fast charging and 33W fast reverse charging. According to the company, it takes about 30 minutes to charge the tablet’s empty battery to half. This is an outstanding feat considering it has a pretty large battery to boot. Also, the tablet comes with the Surge P1 battery management chip so that the battery doesn’t degrade as fast.
Finally, it can’t be a tablet if you can’t convert it into a makeshift laptop. The Pad 6 Max has a magnetic connector to connect a keyboard in and also has pen support. It also has pen support so you could draw your favourite anime characters in and jot down notes. The tablet appears to not have LTE support which is fine since this thing is pretty massive already. Did we also forget about the tab’s eight-speaker system with Dolby Atmos?
It’s currently only available for Chinese users and comes with WPS Office pre-installed with every purchase. Prices start at CNY 3,799 (~PHP 29.5K) for the 8/256 configuration and CNY 4,799 (~PHP 37.3K) for the 16/1TB configuration. There’s no word yet for a Philippine nor global release date.
