Before 2018, Xiaomi was quite consistent in the tablet market. Although its tablets may not be the best in the market, the company was pretty consistent. However, before the coronavirus pandemic held the world to ransom, the tablet market was very unlucrative. However, as the pandemic restricted movement and caused people to work and study from home, the need for large display devices continued to increase. To this end, many manufacturers are now returning to the tablet market. For Xiaomi, it did not officially exit the tablet market. The company just did not release any tablet since the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 in 2018. However, it will now make a return three years later with the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5.
Xiaomi’sCEO, Lei Jun, will give his annual speech on August 10th this year. At this event, the company will also have a new flagship product launch conference. At this flagship launch event, the company will unveil the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4. This device will be the first Xiaomi flagship with an on-screen camera. However, the company will also unveil its second OLED TV as well as other products.
