Xiaomi is planning to release three premium tablets this year, according to information gleaned from the MIUI Home app. The trio, which may well be the Mi Pad 5, Mi Pad 5 Pro and Mi Pad 5 Pro Plus, are expected to feature 120 Hz displays and last generation flagship SoCs.

Rumours and leaks about Xiaomi releasing new tablets have been circulating online for a while, as we most recently reported last month. Now, XDA Developers has discovered references to three new Xiaomi tablets in an alpha version of the MIUI Home app. Apparently, Xiaomi has codenamed these devices 'nabu', 'enuma' and 'elish', which may launch as the Mi Pad 5, Mi Pad 5 Pro and Mi Pad 5 Plus.

All three codenames are supposedly referenced elsewhere as 'isPad', hinting that some Xiaomi apps may have a dedicated tablet UI. Additionally, the MIUI Home app shows how system navigation gestures work on a tablet. In truth, they appear to function as they do on other devices running MIUI, but there is no escaping that these are for tablets and not smartphones.

While all three are expected to feature 16:10 displays, none will utilise Qualcomm's latest SM8350 (Snapdragon 888) platform. Instead, XDA Developers claims that Xiaomi has chosen the SM8250 for 'nabu', which could be the Snapdragon 865, Snapdragon 865 Plus or Snapdragon 870. Meanwhile, Xiaomi is believed to have based 'enuma' and 'elish' on the older SM8150 platform, which Qualcomm markets as the Snapdragon 855, Snapdragon 855 Plus and the Snapdragon 860. 'Enuma' may well be the only tablet of the three that supports mobile connectivity, possibly up to 5G.

Furthermore, all three reputedly have 120 Hz displays, albeit IPS ones. XDA Developers adds that 'nabu' has a 10.97-inch display, but it is unclear how big 'enuma' or 'elish' are. Launch dates for the new Mi Pad trio remain unknown too, even though previous leaks suggest that Xiaomi could be a month or so away from announcing something tablet-related.
