Xiaomi released its first tablet, Mi Pad 5, a few years ago and launched it in the company's European market.

The last tablet was the 8-inch Mi Pad 4 in 2018, and the company recently abandoned the Mi brand.

Pad 5 was designed with productivity in mind and is especially suitable for people who work or study at home.

The tablet is equipped with the company's Smart Stylus stylus, which can be used to take notes or use its function keys to quickly take screenshots.

Mi Pad 5 is an 11-inch tablet with a WQHD+ display, 120Hz refresh rate, four speakers and 6GB of memory. Additional support for Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos.

There is also the Snapdragon 860 processor that was announced earlier this year, which is a new accelerated version of the flagship Snapdragon 855 chip that Qualcomm released in 2019.

There is an 8MP sensor on the front that supports 1080p video recording for meetings and classes.

It also has built-in capabilities to scan documents for later use or share with the 13MP rear camera.

The iPad Air is the more similar competitor, with a starting price of $803 for 64GB, and the device comes in two colors, space gray and pearl white. However, the company did not specify an exact release date for the Tablet 5, only that the date varies by region.
