It’s no secret that Xiaomi is returning to the tablet market and is preparing to present the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 in three versions at once. The two bigger ones will receive a Snapdragon 870 chipset and the smaller one – Snapdragon 860. Only the last of the variants will enter the global market, but the better options will not leave China. New details have arrived about what the tablets will be like.
It is expected that the variants with Snapdragon 870 will be called Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 and Mi Pad 5 Pro, and the version with Snapdragon 860 – Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 Lite. In addition to a slightly more powerful chip, the bigger models will feature 67-watt charging, and the light version will be content with 30-watt charging.
The base tablet of the series will be awarded a battery with a capacity of 8750 mAh, a 10.9-inch IPS-panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a resolution of 2K (2560×1600 pixels). Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 will have a 12 megapixel camera, while the Pro version will have a 48 megapixel sensor.
