We’re definitely just a few days away from the launch of the 2021 Xiaomi tablet PC, after this new tablet was even approved by the FCC today, hinting that there’s an international model that will launch alongside a domestic Chinese one.
We already have a couple of decent and reliable leaks of this Xiaomi tablet by now that indicates what to expect. But we did get a few more details confirmed by today’s FCC approval too.
Official specs listed were MIUI 12.5 on the test unit, with dual-band Wi-Fi 5 (SISO/MIMO), Bluetooth 5.1, it was tested with the keyboard and stylus that we saw in the CAD files, and it features proximity sensors that reduce the power of the Wi-Fi in specific parts of the tablet whenever that part of the tablet is held by a hand in order to reduce the SAR exposure to the user.
This is a feature found in Samsung’s flagship S-series tablets the last three years too, which has led several unknowing tablet reviewers to complain that this and that Samsung tablet has poor Wi-Fi reception, when in fact it’s just a temporary reduction in power when their hand is directly clutching one of the Wi-Fi antennas.
Xiaomi started asking people for specs and feature suggestions for the Xiaomi tablet in February this year, so Xiaomi’s new tablet should have some good mass appeal.
Main specs is rumored to be an 11-inch screen with 120 Hz refresh rate, a 12MP rear camera, and possibly a Qualcomm Snapdragon 860 processor.
