Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 will challenge iPad Pro with a 2K screen and stylus

Xiaomi is preparing to return to the Android tablet market after years of absence, and wants to do it in style: the latest on Xiaomi Mi Pad 5

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic some habits have changed, others such as teaching or work have been disrupted. In many regions of the world we have gone from activities always or almost always carried out in presence to activities that suddenly had to be carried out remotely, which has caused a surge in demand for electronic devices such as PCs and tablets.

And if computers were already widespread, less so were tablets, especially those with Android on board. So investment by manufacturers, including Xiaomi, which is rumored to be debuting the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5, has grown in tandem. The Chinese company has not updated its tablet range for quite some time, years passed without any news, but the pandemic seems to have shaken projects and programs to the point that, according to the latest rumors, by the end of August Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 will be made official. And there are all the prerequisites to witness the launch of a high-end Android tablet, so able to keep up with the reference of the sector, the Apple iPad.

Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 with an incredible display

On Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 emerge very interesting technical specifications indeed. It is rumored that the Chinese Android tablet will have a display with 2K 1440p resolution - a cross between Full HD and 4K - with a high refresh rate - even 144 Hz, with a touch sampling at 480 Hz - to offer the smoothest possible navigation within the system, run games that support it and enjoy the great movies. It would be an incredible effort on the part of the company.

According to the well-informed, moreover, the Mi Pad 5 will be able to count on support for a stylus designed along the lines of Apple Pencil for the iPad and Huawei's M-Pencil MatePad 11, which in our parts is a very recent innovation. Here, it is said that Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 will be a credible rival to the best-selling tablet ever, iPad, and the most recent rival of the Apple product, Huawei MatePad 11.

Articulated range, top chips

It will come with a range articulated on several levels and proposals: Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 should be declined in several versions with different hardware (and costs), so as to give everyone the option best suited to their needs. It seems that the variant at the top of the range Mi Pad 5 may be powered by the Snapdragon 870 chip from Qualcomm, revised, updated and enhanced version of Snapdragon 865, the best chip for 2020 of the American leader.

In short, it seems clear judging from the information circulating on the network that Xiaomi wants to do everything to position itself as a credible alternative in a sector until a few years ago covered and attacked with the products of the Mi Pad line but then left a bit 'unprotected. If today's rumors are true we will soon discover Xiaomi Mi Pad 5, already next month.
