Mi Pad 5 specifications revealed via FCC

The Mi Pad 5 specifications listed on the FCC website include 22.5W fast-charging support, dual-band Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth support. Moreover, it reveals that the device will run the MIUI 12.5 custom skin.

Noted tipster Digital Chat Station has posted on Weibo that Xiaomi’s upcoming K82 tablet will have a 10.95-inch display with 2K resolution and 120Hz refresh rate, 12MP primary camera, 22.5W charging, and MIUI 12.5. The latter two, of course, line up with the Mi Pad 5 specifications that came up on FCC.

Previous leaks and certification listings have revealed other key features of the tablet, such as an LCD panel, 120Hz refresh rate, 10.95-inch display, and side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Other rumoured specifications include stylus support, 4,260mAh battery, and 20MP + 13MP cameras. The Mi Pad 5 series is rumoured to include as many as three models, codenamed nabu, enuma, and elish. While we don’t know their marketing names for certain, it is speculated that the standard Mi Pad 5 model will be powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC and its Pro counterpart will run on the Snapdragon 870 chipset.

In terms of design, Mi Pad 5 seems to look a lot like the iPad Pro 2020 with its angular frame. This is corroborated by an allegedly leaked image of the tablet’s chassis.

Considering this will be the first Xiaomi tablet to launch since the Mi Pad 4 in 2018, there is certainly a lot of interest around the device. We can expect the tablet to launch sometime in the next couple of months, so hang tight as we bring more information about Mi Pad 5 to you soon.
