Last month, Xiaomi submitted 21051182G to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), a typical sign that a device will be released in Europe. Xiaomi's submission described the device as a tablet, which fits with leaks that the company plans to launch the Mi Pad 5 series this year. Apparently, the Mi Pad 5 series will arrive as three models, all with Snapdragon 800 series processors.
Now, the 21051182G has appeared on the FCC, the US equivalent to the EEC. Not only does the FCC reaffirm that the 21051182G is a tablet, but it also confirms a few aspects about the device that the EEC did not. The FCC has not published any photos of the 21051182G, although a leaked factory shot appears to have shown what part of the Mi Pad 5 will look like.
According to the FCC, Xiaomi submitted the 21051182G running MIUI 12.5, soon to be replaced by MIUI 13. While the 21051182G is a Wi-Fi only model, we suspect that at least one Mi Pad 5 will offer 4G or 5G connectivity. The 21051182G supports 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz Wi-Fi, for reference.
Additionally, the FCC describes the 21051182G as supporting a keyboard and stylus. Hence, it seems likely that Xiaomi's Mi Pad 5 tablets will compete with the Galaxy Tab S7 and iPad Pro series when they arrive later this year. Moreover, the listing states that Xiaomi has developed two configurations of the 21051182G, both with 6 GB of RAM. However, one will have 128 GB of storage and the other 256 GB.
Xiaomi is expected to reveal the Mi Pad 5 series this summer. By the looks of it, the company will release the tablets globally, which would be a first.
