After Xiaomi announced the revival of the Mi Pad line, many took these words with enthusiasm and began to count on an early spring announcement. But spring is almost over and the Mi Pad 5 is still gone. Recently, an official Xiaomi said that the line was originally planned to be released in the third quarter – there was hope for their announcement at least in July. But, as the source writes now, Mi Pad 5 will appear only in August. And this is not in the hands of Xiaomi.
The market for tablets is booming, as are the markets for smartphones and PCs, and delaying the release of new products means losing an audience. Lenovo recently held a large presentation of new products in China, including very interesting and inexpensive tablets Xiaoxin Pad Pro 2021 and Xiaoxin Pad Plus, a little earlier Samsung presented a new product called Galaxy Tab S7 FE. According to rumors, in June, the tablets will appear at Vivo and Oppo. Xiaomi will be in the role of catching up here. And as the release dates for the Mi Pad 5 are delayed, it will be more difficult to catch up on lost positions in the market.
There are no new details about the characteristics of the Mi Pad 5, but from what is known to date – the new items will receive IPS and OLED screens (in different models, there will be three in total) and Qualcomm Snapdragon 870, 860 and 768G single-chip systems. There is also information about a 8720 mAh battery, support for a stylus with recognition of 4096 degrees of pressure, a dual camera with sensors with a resolution of 20 and 13 megapixels (the top version may have a 48 megapixel camera). Also called the thickness and weight of one of the models – 8.13 mm and 510 grams.
