Potential Mi Pad 5 Keyboard and Stylus Design Leaked in CNIPA Patent
Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 is perhaps the most leaked tablet from China this year and we’ve already seen specs and renders for it. Today we learn more about its accessories, including a keyboard and stylus. Those were revealed by a CNIPA patent.
The device is supposed to debut in August in at least two versions. CNIPA is the China National Intellectual Property Administration. It revealed that the device will have a keyboard accessory, propping the slate at 45 degree angels. It comes with an adjustable support, which lets you tilt the display view angle and also an area for a stylus. There’s a cutout used as a connector to attach the tablet to the keyboard.
On the top left there’s a square shared cutout for the camera. The stylus looks rather basic and feels more like the Apple Pencil than the S-Pen or Huawei M Pencil. The previous Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 leaks revealed that we would get a 10.95 inch screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor and a special version of MIUI for tablets, a Pad OS of sorts. There should be support for “handheld PC mode” with MIUI features.
The MiPad 5 is also rumored to have a dual camera setup at the back, a 20 MP main sensor and a 13 MP secondary shooter. It should also use a 8720 mAh battery, probably quad speakers and with a bit of luck a 120 Hz refresh rate panel. Expect a hefty price.
