Xiaomi introduced the new Xiaomi Book S tablet. The manufacturer positions it as a universal device that can replace a laptop and be used both for office work or study, and for entertainment.
The gadget received a 12.35″ IPS display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels and a standard refresh rate of 60 Hz. The panel features a maximum brightness of 500 nits, support for 10 touches at once, and coverage of 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The protective function is performed by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
You can control the tablet using the Smart Pen, but you have to buy it separately. The price of the accessory is 99 euros. You can also connect a keyboard to the tablet (149 euros) and use it instead of a laptop – Book S runs on the ARM version of Windows 11.
The Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 processor, made using a 7-nanometer process technology, is responsible for the performance of the novelty. One configuration available with 8GB LPDDR4X RAM and 256GB storage.
For video calling, a 5-megapixel front camera and a pair of noise-canceling microphones are provided. Also on board Xiaomi Book S there is a 13-megapixel main camera, stereo speakers, a minijack, a memory card slot and a Type-C port through which you can connect a monitor with a resolution of up to 4K.
According to the manufacturer, due to the 4920 mAh battery, the device can work up to 13 and a half hours. Supports 65W fast charging. In this case, you will have to buy an adapter separately – it is not included in the kit. With dimensions of 294 x 197 x 8.95 mm, the weight of the tablet is 720 grams.
