UPDATE (May 5th, 2021):
A new report has emerged that corroborates claims of Xiaomi working on three premium Android tablets. The newest references to these unreleased tablets have been found within MIUI 12.5 system apps. An alpha version of the MIUI Home application has shown hidden system navigation options meant for a tablet device.
The leak further reveals that the "Enuma" and "Elish" codenamed tablets have model numbers ending with K81 and K81A respectively. The third tablet i.e. "Nabu" has its model number ending with K82. This has led to speculation that the first two tablets could actually be two different versions of the same model. Each of these tablets is said to sport an IPS LCD panel with 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 16:10 aspect ratio.

Xiaomi is a well-known smartphone brand around the world but if you are following the company since its early days, you might remember that it also used to make Android tablets. It is finally rumored to be making a return to the tablet market with the release of a new lineup. We first heard about these rumors early this year and now, we are hearing some more details.
The fresh report reveals that Xiaomi actually has three Android tablets in the pipeline. These are said to have model numbers K81, K81A, and K82 along with internal codenames "Enuma", "Elish", and "Nabu". The company will be using Qualcomm Snapdragon 800-series processors. The exact choice of the chipset will be Snapdragon 870 for "Enuma" and "Elish" but it will be Snapdragon 860 for the "Nabu" model.
As for technical specifications, not much is know at this point. There are rumors that new Xiaomi tablets will have an IPS display with 2560 x 1800 pixels resolution. There will be a 48-megapixel primary camera sensor on the "Enuma" model and a 12-megapixel camera sensor on the other two tablets. Each of the models will have a quad camera setup including an ultra-wide camera sensor, a macro camera sensor, and a depth camera sensor. Other noteworthy features will include quad speakers, NFC support, and ultra-fast charging for quick charging times.
An exact release date for these Xiaomi Android tablets is currently unknown. The only thing known about the launch is that these will become available later this year. We should be getting more details as we will get closer to the launch event.
