Xiaomi-designed tablets were expected to debut alongside the Mi MIX Fold last month but that didn’t see the light of the day. Latest reports, however, now suggest that the Chinese brand might re-enter the tablet segment with three new products.
As per a Twitter account by the name @xiaomiui, Xiaomi is likely planning to bring three new tablets with the Snapdragon 8-series platform. The tweet first spotted by GizmoChina reveals that the alleged Xiaomi tablets are codenamed “Enuma”, “Elish”, and “Nabu” and have model numbers K81, K81A, and K82 respectively. The tablets with codename “Enuma” and “Elish” are said to feature Snapdragon 870 SoC, while the Nabu could likely equip a Snapdragon 860 chipset. Further, the tablet with model number K81 (Nabu) is tipped to be the cheapest among the three.
As for the rest of the specs, the upcoming Xiaomi tablet series is rumoured to feature IPS displays with a resolution of 2,560 x 800 pixels and a 120Hz refresh rate. The displays will likely have a 410nits peak brightness level. The source further cites that the tablet codenamed “Enuma” could get a 48-megapixel primary rear camera while the other two tablets will have a 12-megapixel primary rear camera. All three models are said to feature four camera sensors- an ultra-wide lens, a macro lens, and a depth sensor. The tablets are also said to carry NFC, quad speakers, and have wireless, ultra-fast charging support. The three tablets are speculated to debut under the Mi Pad lineup.
