Xiaomi tablet surfaces yet again, this time with a 9.2″ screen, Snapdragon 400

Although a Xiaomi tablet that’s allegedly in the works has shown up multiple times in the past, rumours around the same have died down in the recent times.

However, folks at Webtrek.it only recently reported about a 9.2-inch device which appeared on the GFXbench database and which is believed to be the very Xiaomi tablet in question. Even if it is the real thing, specifications are far from insipring and probably aimed at sensitive, emerging markets. Xiaomi have shown renewed interest in expanding shores which makes pieces of this puzzle fall in place perfectly.


Gizchina News of the week

A picture, allegedly a screenie of a GXFbench listing tells us what might comprise the first ever Xiaomi tablet. As seen above, it says that the device has a 9.2-inch 1280 x 720 pixel display, a quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB and 8GB of RAM and on-board storage respectively. It also gives away imaging hardware info, which supposedly is made up of an 8 mega-pixel rear and a 1.5 mega-pixel front camera.

Word going around also suggests that the 9.2-inch Xiaomi tablet feature 3G and voice calling apart from the usual connectivity radio. Of course, like any other Xiaomi smart device, the Xiaomi tablet too is expected to run on their on Android dessert, MIUI.

Xiaomi have kept mum about a tablet project which has been doing rounds of the rumour mill for quite a while. Can we take this leak for concrete evidence?

    1280×720, strange resolution, normally tablets are 1280×768 or 1280×800. I wish that panel manufacturers made 1440×900 resolution 7-9″ screens and had this as the low end instead of 1280×720.

      1280×720 should be less strange than the other dimensions you suggest because 1280×720 is considered HD and is in the correct ratio of 16:9, the others are not.

    If I’m not very much mistaken that is the Hongmi 1s. All specs are virtually the same, just the display size is off and the number of SIM slots is wrong. But if you look at the GFXbench specs from the original Hongmi you find display sizes from 4.6 to 5.2 inches, wrong specs for both cameras and a range from 0 to 2 SIM slots.

    Don’t be fooled, that’s probably just a prototype of the Hongmi 1s. If you substitute “AC” for “S” even the name fits.

    And even if it’s not the 1s, it may just be a test from Xiaomi where they hooked a 1s to a 10 inch screen for testing purposes. But who knows. Maybe they are seriously exploring the possibility of using the same hardware for their new low budget phone and a new tablet to cut down purchase prices for the hardware by ordering in larger quantities.
