Finally, Mi Pad 4 Tablet has officially been unveiled in China and it comes with 4G LTE. I am glad that Xiaomi is still releasing a new tablet in spite of the uncertain demands for such devices as smartphones are getting bigger and bigger to replace what tablets were once used for-screen real estate. This new tablet from Xiaomi has LTE connectivity and face unlock for that added security despite its relatively cheap price tag.
