Xiaomi has a range of Android tablets under the Mi Pad lineup. The brand launched the Mi Pad 4 lineup back in 2018, and it has been almost three years since the brand has not released an Android tablet. Now, a fresh report by XDA reveals that Xiaomi is working on as many as three Android tablet models. XDA found a reference of three devices with codename enuma, elish, and nabu with ‘isPad’ mentioned in methods in MIUI 12.5 system apps.

These upcoming tablets might be powered by top-tier Qualcomm Snapdragon processors. This is one of the big changes compared to the predecessors since Xiaomi has mostly been using mid-range SoCs on the Mi Pad lineup till now.

Upcoming Xiaomi Tablets might be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8-series processors!

Xiaomi is working on three Android tablets with codenames enuma, elish, and nabu. Enuma and Elish are likely to be variants of each other as the model number of Enuma ends with K81 while the model number of elish ends with K81A.

XDA claims that enuma and elish will be powered by Qualcomm’s sm8250 mobile platform. This means that we will likely see Qualcomm Snapdragon 865, 865+, or 870 on enuma and elish.

While the third tablet has codename nabu has model number ending with K82. It will be powered by Qualcomm’s sm8150 mobile platform. So, we can expect to see one of Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, 855+, or 860 with nabu.

The report also suggests that enuma will come with voice calls support. While the elish, and nabu won’t support 4G/LTE connectivity.

Also, Kacskrz, a Xiaomi tipster, found a new settings page in a recent alpha build of the MIUI Launcher app. The page shows the demo for the system navigation for these tablets. Finding by Kacskrz hint that all three upcoming Xiaomi tablets might have standard 16:10 aspect ratio displays.

All three devices are said to get an IPS LCD display with 2560×1600 pixel resolution with 120Hz refresh rate. Kacskrz also says that nabu might have a 10.97-inch display panel, and an 8720mAh battery under the hood.

With Qualcomm Snapdragon 8-series processors, 120Hz refresh rate displays, and big batteries, Xiaomi might finally be planning to give other players such as Apple, and Samsung, tough competition in the flagship tablet segment. The segment is dominated by the likes of Apple iPad Pros, and Samsung Galaxy S-series tablets.

Xiaomi has brought only one tablet – the first-gen Mi Pad to the Indian market, so we should probably not expect these to launch in India. What do you think of the upcoming Xiaomi tablets? Do let us know in the comments below.
