There have been several reports regarding the upcoming Xiaomi Mi Pad 5. However, over the past few weeks, there has not been any leak regarding this tablet. Today, popular Chinese Weibo leakster, @DCS revealed some details regarding the Mi Pad 5. According to him, this device will come with a right-angled edge design similar to Apple’s iPad Pro. Furthermore, the device will also use a thin and light body. The leak further reveals that this device will abandon the punch-hole display and will have a 120Hz high LCD screen. The fingerprint sensor of this tablet will be on the side of the device.
From the speculations so far, the Xiaomi Mi Tab 5 will not be alone. This tablet will also have a Pro version. Of course, the specifications of the regular and Pro versions will not be the same. The processors of these devices will be Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 and MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. However, there is no information as to which will use the SD870 or Dimensity 1200. Also, these smartphones will support 2K + 120Hz, 4096-level touch, and an In-Cell active pen technology. The S Pen support can bring more detail and smoothness to large-screen devices. In addition, the tablet will have a built-in 4260 mAh dual-cell battery (equivalent to 8720 mAh).
The new Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series should officially launch in July if all go according to plan. Xiaomi believes that the Mi Pad 5 Pro will be a direct competition for flagships like the iPad and Huawei Mate Pad Pro. However, the standard version will be cost-effective.
