It has long been no secret that Xiaomi is developing a new generation tablet. Unconfirmed information about the Mi Pad 5 has repeatedly appeared on the Web, but only now the exact release date and some technical features of the device have become known.
Xiaomi has released a teaser, according to which the debut of the model will take place on August 10 – as you know, the flagship smartphone Mi MIX 4 with a frameless display will also be presented on the same day. Judging by the poster, at the same time users will be shown a stylus compatible with the tablet. Most likely, we are talking about the Smart Pen model, recently certified by the US Federal Communications Commission under the code number M2107K81PC. Very little is known about the new product so far — except that it supports Bluetooth 5.0.
If the rumors are to be believed, there will be three versions of the Mi Pad 5. The base one has a 2K resolution display with a 120Hz refresh rate. The novelty is built on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 mobile platform and will receive a 12-megapixel main camera, a side fingerprint scanner and support for 33W fast charging. It is possible that we are talking about model 21051182C, recently approved by the Chinese regulator 3C.
The second variant will get a 10.95-inch 2K LCD display at 120Hz, and will also be equipped with a Snapdragon 870 chipset. The novelty will receive a 48-megapixel camera, an 8720 mAh battery with a charge of 67 watts. Presumably, there will be a third option, which is known only that it supports 5G networks. Probably, we are talking about the models M210581AC and M210581C, also certified by 3C earlier this month.
The Chinese company has prepared many new devices for the premiere on August 10th. In addition to the Mi Pad 5 models, the manufacturer has already promised to introduce the Mi MIX 4 flagship smartphone with a selfie camera hidden under the display, as well as a second-generation smart TV with an OLED display and a new Hi-End «smart speaker».
