New Mi Pad 5 concept renders split opinion as Xiaomi dismisses them for logo inaccuracy
Some new Mi Pad 5 concept renders have been shared by HoiINDI, who has offered plenty of fan-made concept images in the past, including some of the Mi Mix 4 and a mysterious Huawei smartphone. Now a handful of Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 renders have been posted, and while they have been dividing opinions, it appears Xiaomi has had to make an official(ish) statement to make sure fans realize they are not the real deal. It’s possible the designer has actually been reasonably accurate to a point with these Mi Pad 5 renditions.
While some have praised the new Mi Pad 5 renders, it seems many followers of Xiaomi’s PR chief Wang Hua are less enamored with them. The executive also pointed out that the “Mi” logo was inaccurate, although he made no other comment about other aspects of the tablet concept, such as its narrow bezels, the front-facing camera being installed in the top edge, and the Xiaomi Mi 11-like square housing for the main camera equipment on the rear.
The Mi Pad 5 is expected to come in Pro, regular, and Lite variants, although there has also been mention of a potential Mi Pad 5 Pro Plus and even the suggestion that an “Ultra” model could make an appearance. The processor situation for the Xiaomi tablets is also still somewhat murky, with the Snapdragon 870 and Snapdragon 860 both expected to feature in the lineup. A Mediatek Dimensity 1200 processor had also been previously rumored to power at least one of the upcoming Mi Pad 5 slates, which could be released by late August.
