Chinese consumer electronics brand Xiaomi offers a range of products. However, there is one department in which it hasn’t really arrived — tablets.
But that is set to change soon if a report by XDA Developers is to be believed. As per the report, Xiaomi is working on at least three new high-end tablets that will run on Android-based custom OS.
The report claims that there are multiple references of three devices — codenamed “nabu”, “enuma”, and “elish.” In its findings, they found that these codenames are referenced in methods such as “isPad”, suggesting that some MIUI apps will show select features on tablets.
Additionally, it also suggests that the MIUI Home app has been spotted with an alpha version that contains a new settings page that demos system navigation on tablets.
The report elaborates that the “enuma” comes with model name K81 and “elish” comes with model name K81A. They are said to be variants of one another, while the “nabu” model is a different product with a model name that ends in K82.
Another hint that the report points out is that a reference was also found in the MIUI Settings app in a method called “isSplitTablet”.
When it comes to the specs of these alleged tablets, the report suggests that they could offer an IPS LCD display with 2560×1600p resolution and 120Hz refresh rate. They are likely to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 8-series chipsets.
There is no word from the company on this officially yet, but that could change in the next couple of weeks.
