Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 and Mi Pad 5 Pro: fresh tablet details

The last time Xiaomi released tablets was in 2018, since then it was believed that the company decided to abandon the products of this segment. But recently it became known that Xiaomi will still update its line of tablets this year. Perhaps this decision was influenced by a sharp jump in demand for devices that can be used for distance learning and work, which is still popular amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Mi Pad 5 series has already passed 3C certification in China, which means that the devices are coming soon. In addition, information from the certification body’s database revealed some details about the tablets. So, it became known that the device will receive a two-cell battery with a total capacity of 8520 mAh (2 x 4260 mAh).

It is also expected that the Mi Pad 5 will be equipped with the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 chipset, and the Mi Pad 5 Pro will be equipped with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 870. Earlier leaks reported that the Mi Pad 5 Pro will be equipped with a 2K LCD screen with 120Hz refresh rate and 240Hz touch sampling rate. At the same time, the Pro version will have another strong side – support for working with an electronic stylus. In general, the Pro version is positioned as a competitor to such high-performance tablets as iPad Pro and Huawei Mate Pad Pro. In conclusion, we add that Xiaomi representatives announced the development of a separate version of MIUI, designed specifically for the Mi Pad 5 Pro series tablets.
