Mi Pad 5 with stylus support set to launch in China on August 10th

Highlights
  • Mi Pad 5 launch date has officially been set for August 10th. 
  • Xiaomi will also launch a stylus alongside the Mi Pad 5. 
  • We can expect to see three tablets in being unveiled, namely Mi Pad 5, Mi Pad 5 Lite and Mi Pad 5 Pro. 

Xiaomi’s upcoming tablet, the Mi Pad 5, has been leaked quite a few times. However, we still don’t know when it will be unveiled, at least until now. An official poster confirms that the Mi Pad 5 launch date is set for August 10th. The imagery also shows what appears to be a stylus, so we can expect Xiaomi to launch a stylus to supplement the Mi Pad 5. We have a decent idea about the Mi Pad 5 specs thanks to some leaks and teasers, but it is hard to say for sure because of some contradictory information. 

Mi Pad 5 specifications

We know that Xiaomi has three tablets in store for us under the Mi Pad 5 moniker, tentatively called the Mi Pad 5, Mi Pad 5 Pro and Mi Pad 5 Lite. One (or two) of them could run a Snapdragon 870 chipset, while the remaining variant will pack a Snapdragon 860. There are rumours about a Snapdragon 778G and MediaTek Dimensity 1200-powered variant, too, but those look somewhat sketchy. It would make sense for the Pro variant to run the best chipset and take things down a notch from there. 

At least two Mi Pad 5 versions will feature a 10.9-inch 120 Hz AMOLED screen. Both tablets will draw power from an 8,750 mAh battery that supports 67 W fast charging. However, we’re of the opinion that this can’t be the case, as tablets usually vary by screen size/battery capacity and not the megapixel count on the camera. We’ll have to wait till the official reveal to know for sure. Some last-minute leaks might also help clear the air.
