XIAOMI MI PAD 5 coming back after THREE-YEAR's of hiatus

After long two years without updates on its Mi Pad series, one can think that Xiaomi had completely given up on the tablet market. We've to mention that the market of Android tablets isn’t the most appealing lately. We'll say that Android isn’t so attractive on larger-sized devices. However, Xiaomi managed to beat the challenges with its own MIUI. Despite this, the brand did not update its tablet lineup for quite two years now. The last model, the Mi Pad 4 was launched in June 2018, 2.5 years ago and its sales weren’t that good. However, during a sudden twist of fates, it seems like Xiaomi will bring back its tablet series this year through the Mi Pad 5.

Apparently, there's a brand new strong demand for these devices in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. This prompted the recent statement by Xiaomi’s Xu Jieyun who publicly stated that the long-silent Xiaomi tablet products will introduce an update this year. it'll bring an MIUI system based on tablet market research and development.

Though Xiaomi will not be able to compete against Samsung and Apple, it has its own market. Although it has been three years since we last saw a Xiaomi tablet, the brand has its loyal fan base. Hopefully, these fans are anticipating the arrival of the Xiaomi Mi Pad 5.
