Xiaomi Book S 12.4 Launched In Europe

Xiaomi Book S 12.4

Xiaomi has shown its intentions of making Windows 11 tablets long ago. Today, following the schedule, the company announced the Xiaomi Book S 12.4 in Europe.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2

The Xiaomi Book S 12.4 is a hybrid tablet that sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 chip. Thus, we are dealing with a relatively high-end Arm tablet. We understand that this is not the latest Qualcomm chip in this series, as there is 8cx Gen 3, but this SoC also performs well. Moreover, devices with the latter are not on sale yet. So this is still one of the most top-end on the market if you look for a Windows 11 Arm device.

The processor consists of eight Kryo 495 CPU cores that have a clock speed of up to 2.84GHz. Also, it integrates the Qualcomm Adreno 680 graphics card. The chip is paired with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. At the moment, this is the only memory combination available for purchase. Of course, it could be better but we have what we have. Unfortunately, the tablet doesn’t boast of a large-capacity battery. It’s only 38Whr. However, taking into account the fact that it comes with the Arm processor, the Xiaomi Book S 12.4 should provide around 13 hours of autonomy on a single charge.

Xiaomi Book S 12.4 Specs

Well, we are talking about a tablet and the screen is one of the key features that we should pay attention to. In this regard, the Xiaomi Book S 12.4 sports a 12.35-inch display, which has a 16:10 aspect ratio. Thus, it is a bit taller than a traditional 16:9 panel. Also, it has a 2560 x 1600 resolution, up to 500 nits of brightness, and it covers 100% of DCI-P3. Besides supporting touch, it also supports the Xiaomi Smart Pen (sold separately). By the way, the latter supports 4,096 levels of pressure for a more natural drawing and writing experience. Lastly, this stylus supports Bluetooth and has two buttons for quick actions.

Once you dock the keyboard, the Xiaomi Book S 12.4 will turn into a laptop. Due to the built-in kickstand, the tablet will enter into the corresponding mode immediately. However, you have to purchase the keyboard separately. It costs around €150.

We forgot to say that the Xiaomi Book S 12.4 sports a 5MP camera on the front (1080p video) and a 13MP rear camera. There are noise-canceling microphones compatible with Qualcomm Aqstic technology. Of course, the tablet comes with two stereo speakers.

However, there are not many ports and interfaces on the sides. It has only one USB-C port, a headphone jack, and a microSD card reader.

The Xiaomi Book S 12.4 is priced at €699 in Europe. It is already available in Germany.
