Xiaomi, back in August 2021, introduced the Xiaomi Pad 5 series under its tablet lineup. The Pad 5 series from Xiaomi consists of two tablets – Xiaomi Pad 5 and Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro. Xiaomi, a few months ago, introduced the Xiaomi Pad 5 Pro 12.4. Now, the brand appears to be working on the Pad 6 series, if a report by Xiaomiui is to be believed. Folks at Xiaomiui took a dig into the MIUI codes and found references to two upcoming tablets with codenames pipa and liuqin.

The publications claim that the pipa and liuqin will make their debut as the Xiaomi Pad 6 and Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro respectively. The Xiaomi Pad 6 series tablets are tipped to go official sometime in early 2023. However, the Xiaomi Pad 6 Pro will be launched exclusively in China. Along with the launch timeline, Xiaomiui has also revealed some of the key specifications of the Xiaomi Pad 6 series tablets. Let us take a closer look at the details.
