There are three versions of the Xiaomi Redmi Pad so far – regular, Pro and SE – but none of them offers 5G connectivity. That will change soon as CEO Lei Jun shared that a 5G variant of the Redmi Pad Pro is in the works and that has now appeared on TENAA as well.

The slate has a model number 24074RPD2C with the “C” standing for China. Two other variants have been spotted: 24074RPD2G (Global) and 24074RPD2I (India).

The 5G variant is supposed to have the same specs as the current Wi-Fi only model, except for the connectivity. This means a Snapdragon 7s Gen 2 chipset, a 12.1” 120Hz IPS LCD and a 10,000mAh battery with 33W charging.

TENAA provides a photo of the Redmi Pad Pro 5G, but there isn’t much to see. And the specs listed may need to be corrected as they only list a 4,900mAh battery (it’s possible that this is one cell of a dual-cell battery).

The 5G model, like its Wi-Fi sibling, will support Network Sync, says Lei Jun. Network Sync is a one-tap solution to connect the tablet to your phone’s hotspot, but that is obviously a lot more useful on a tablet that doesn’t bring its own 5G modem.

Xiaomi tends to pick model numbers that correspond to the launch date, e.g. the Xiaomi 14 has a model number 23127PN0CC and it was announced in 2023 in December (hence 23.12…). The 2407… model number of the Redmi Pad Pro 5G suggests a July launch.

PS. we have already reviewed the vanilla Remdi Pad and the SE (links below) and we are in the process of reviewing the Redmi Pad Pro as well.
