Rumor | Xiaoxin Pad Pro 2022 is on the way as one of the latest Lenovo tablets on the Chinese market
The Chinese leak machine has allegedly turned up signs of not just 1 but 2 tablets being readied for launch by Lenovo. One of these, the TB138FCxxxxx, is now touted as a possible successor to the current Xiaoxin Pad Pro, mostly as it has become linked to an upgrade to 68W fast charging thanks to new 3C certifications.
The device is also thought to join the Pad Pro line thanks to its alleged 2.5K "high refresh rate" OLED display. However, it seems that, in order to elevate its charging to Edge 30 Pro levels, its battery capacity may have taken a hint: it is now slated at just 8,200mAh, whereas even the Pad Pro 2021's 11-inch SKU has 8,600mAh.
Furthermore, it seems Lenovo has decided to reprise the Snapdragon 870 SoC, which also featured in that older slate and its 12.6-inch top-end sibling. On the other hand, the "Pad Pro 2022" could still turn out as a new, ~8-inch variant, which might prove interesting as it would be even more compact and portable, and also probably show how well this idea is working out for Lenovo thus far.
In any case, it seems the OEM has something for fans of lesser-spotted tablet chipsets in reserve anyway. It is also now linked to the imminent debut of the TB132FU, another slate allegedly spotted on 3C as of late with 30W charging. Combined with its MediaTek "Xun Kun 1300T", or Kompanio 1300T, platform, it may offer a more affordable experience on its launch.
Its potentially flagship-grade counterpart, at least, is projected to be here by the end of August 2022. Then again, Lenovo has yet to acknowledge either new product in any official material to date.
