A new Xiaomi device, described as "a tablet" by a reliable tipster, has reportedly been approved for sale in China by its Ministry for Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). This might be a sign that the rumored 2021 Mi Pad is set to launch soon. Its latest leak suggests it is powered by the 5g-capable Snapdragon 870 SoC.

Xiaomi has not released a flagship tablet since the Mi Pad 4 series; however, this is slated to change in 2021 with the launch of a long-awaited successor. The rumors surrounding this putative device seem to hint at 3 variants that will evince a hybrid between the iPad Pro 2021 and the Mi 11 in their design. However, the latest "Mi Pad 5" tip seems clearer on one particular detail: at least 1 SKU will have 5G.

This is based on a new registration with China's MIIT for a new device with up-to-date connectivity called the "Xiaomi 2105K81C". According to Digital Chat Station, it is an upcoming tablet from the OEM, and owes its mobile data specs to the Snapdragon 870 SoC.

Therefore, it is possible this new certification is for a Mi Pad 5 5G, and one that can apparently compete with the new Lenovo Yoga Pad Pro/Tab 13, too.. On the other hand, its alleged model number is very different from that of another Xiaomi product overtly categorized as a tablet by the EEC.

However, that one could be either of the remaining 2 "new Mi Pad" variants - which, as Digital Chat Station hints in their new Weibo post, could debut with the Snapdragon 860 platform instead.
