Following the release of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 in August last year, the successor to this device will of course be the Xiaomi Pad 6. Xiaomi had a long break after the release of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 4 in 2018. The company did not release the successor (Xiaomi Mi Pad 5) until 2021, ie three years in between. Before the release of the Mi Pad 5, Xiaomi used to focus on mid-range tablets. However, with the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5, the company adds some key features. From the reports so far, it seems that the Xiaomi Pad 6 series will have a basic model. The Xiaomi Pad 6, which is already in the EEC certification database, will have up to four models. These models are the L81, L81A, L82 and L83. This should correspond to the Xiaomi Pad 6, Pad 6 Pro, Pad 6 Pro 5G and a Redmi tablet.
There are many Xiaomi fans looking forward to the 6th generation Xiaomi Tablet products. Xiaomi officially released the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 in August last year. Returning to the market after several years, the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series has achieved excellent results. Considering what the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 brings, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Remember that the Pad 5 comes with the Snapdragon 870 SoC. So there is room for chip upgrades and other aspects.
The Xiaomi Pad 6 series is coming
The latest report coming out of China claims that a model of the Xiaomi Pad 6 series has Chinese certification. The certification file reveals that the specific model number is 22081281AC. Remember that the code name of the Xiaomi Pad 5 series is M2105K81C. The last set of letters and numbers are very similar. This means that the device is most likely the replica of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5.
It is worth mentioning that there have been several reports about the specifications of the Xiaomi Pad 6 series. The popular report claims that there will be two models in the series. However, there could be up to four models in the series. The base model uses a 2K / 120Hz display and will retain the Snapdragon 870 chip of the previous model. The positive side of this model is that the price will be further reduced.
The top model will be upgraded to SD888 SoC
The high-end model is the highlight of this generation. According to speculation, its chip will be upgraded to the SoC of the Snapdragon 888 series. This means that the device will have a significant improvement in performance. Although the Snapdragon 888 has always been troubled by the heat and power consumption of mobile phones, this weakness can basically be offset on the tablet. However, the large body of the tablet can perfectly replace it in terms of heat dissipation and battery. In addition, if the screen is further upgraded, it can use a large 2K / 120Hz OLED screen.
Unfortunately, in terms of official information, the company was quite secretive about the upcoming tablet. However, like the previous generation, we expect the new model to do well in the market. Since the onset of the pandemic, there has been a growing demand for widescreen devices. This is because many people now work or study from home. So not only Xiaomi, but many other brands are now releasing new tablets.
There are also reports that while Xiaomi is preparing its tablets, Redmi is also preparing a tablet. In addition, at least one of the Xiaomi tablets will support 5G network. This should be the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro. In addition to the Snapdragon 870 SoC for the original model and the Snapdragon 888 SoC for the top model, there are reports that the mid-range model will use the Dimension 8100.
