According to some new information that surfaced online, Xiaomi is planning to launch three new tablets. This could be Xiaomi’s answer to Huawei’s declining market share when it comes to mobile devices.
Huawei’s MediaPad tablets were quite popular, considering they are tablets, so Xiaomi may be looking to fill the void. At the same time, the company may be looking to create some competition for Samsung.
Android tablets haven’t really been a thing for quite some time now. A lot of OEMs stopped releasing them altogether. Huawei, Samsung, and Lenovo were amongst the rare ones to release tablets, at least from well-known OEMs.
All three upcoming Xiaomi tablets will be fueled by Snapdragon 800 series chips
Now, according to the report, Xiaomi will launch three tablets, all of which will be fueled by the Snapdragon 800 series chipsets. In other words, all three tablets will be quite powerful, it seems.
Based on the information from ‘xiaomiui’ Twitter account, the company is working on “Enuma”, “Elish”, and “Nabu” tablets. Those are just codenames, and they’re coming with model numbers K81, K81A, and K82, respectively.
Now, based on the provided information, all of them will include 120Hz IPS displays. The mentioned resolution is 2560 x 800, but that could be a mistake, as that would mean these tablets would be unusually narrow. Truth be said, it’ll probably be 2560 x 1800 or 2560 x 1600.
The Snapdragon 870 & 860 will be used
The Xiaomi “Enuma” and “Elish” are tipped to ship with the Snapdragon 870 SoC. The Xiaomi “Nabu” tablet will include the Snapdragon 860 SoC. A 48-megapixel camera is mentioned for the “Enuma”, while a 12-megapixel camera is tipped for the “Elish” and “Nabu”.
All three tablets are said to support NFC, and include four speakers. The source also mentions “Dual Cell Battery”, and wireless charging. These tablets will also support extremely fast charging, according to the source, 120-135W wired charging.
All of this sounds great, presuming it’s true. This is not our usual source for Xiaomi’s upcoming products, so take the information with a grain of salt. The info may be accurate, but let’s wait and see.
