Xiaomi is rumored to be working on both a new foldable smartphone and tablet, which could make appearances in 2021. A potential Mi Pad 5 tablet would be a welcome addition to the stagnating Xiaomi Mi Pad range, whereas the “Cetus” or “Mi Fold” smartphone will apparently feature a screen with a high refresh rate.

Noted tech leaker Digital Chat Station has been offering up some tidbits in regard to Xiaomi’s schedule for the near future. While it was already widely reported that the Chinese OEM will sooner or later reveal a mass-production foldable smartphone to the world, it appears Xiaomi is also working on a new tablet. The latter could end up being a successor to 2018’s Mi Pad 4 Plus, so a possible Xiaomi Mi Pad 5, or the company might decide to introduce a whole new Android-based tablet range.

Hopefully, Xiaomi might launch a tablet that could take on the all-powerful Apple iPad range and rival the Samsung Galaxy Tab series, as consumers have not exactly been spoilt for choice in recent years in regard to the tablet computer market. The Mi Pad range was often accused of ripping off the iPad, but a Mi Pad 5 might offer at least a design departure for Xiaomi and be priced at an attractive and affordable point that seems to have been overlooked by both Samsung and Apple as of late.

Fortunately, Digital Chat Station offered up a little bit more detail about Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone. Numerous patents have already been unearthed that indicate the firm is working on such a device, with the codename “Cetus” even appearing in connection with a foldable phone. While it has been previously rumored that the Xiaomi foldable smartphone would come with a 108 MP camera, the tech tipster also claims that the device will have high performance, high resolution, and a high refresh rate. In fact, another source reckons the Xiaomi Cetus could end up with a 90-Hz or even 120-Hz display.
