According to reports, Redmi is working on its first tablet. Although the official name of the device has not been confirmed, it is tentatively called the Redmi Pad. Miuipolska reports that the Redmi Pad will be equipped with the MT8781 chipset from MediaTek. There is no information on SoC’s marketing name.
Redmi Pad’s new chipset will be manufactured using TSMC’s 6nm process, according to the report. It will be similar to the Helio G99, which powers Infinix Note 12 Pro and Vivo V25e smartphones. POCO M5 will also feature the G99.
There will be two Cortex-A76 CPU cores running at 2.2GHz, six Cortex-A55 CPU cores running at 2GHz, and one Mali-G57 MC2. The Helio G99 also has these specs. According to the report, the new chip will support LPDDR4x RAM, eMMC 5.1, and UFS 2.2 storage.
A camera with a maximum resolution of 108 megapixels is supported by the MT8781 chip, along with a front camera with a resolution of 32 megapixels (or two cameras with 16 megapixels). H.264, H.265, and VP9 codecs will be supported for encoding/decoding 2K video at 30fps. A device featuring the MT8781 chip will have a display resolution of 1200 x 2000 pixels and a refresh rate of 90Hz. Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.2, and LTE. Despite this, it will not support 5G.
As far as the Redmi Pad is concerned, it is unlikely to connect to any mobile network since its FCC documents do not mention an IMEI number. It is still unclear what the tablet’s key specifications will be. Due to its serial production starting in Asia and Europe, it does not appear that the Redmi Pad will take too long to become official.
