While Xiaomi didn’t announce its first tablet on April 23, as it was hinted earlier this week, the company certainly has a tablet in the pipeline. Or at least that’s what various Chinese and Taiwanese websites are saying.

According to Focus Taiwan, Xiaomi is currently in talks with both Intel and Nvidia, and it should choose one of them to supply SoCs for its first tablet. Reportedly, the upcoming slate may feature a 7.85-inch display with 1536 x 2048 pixels - thus rivaling Apple’s iPad Mini 2, which sports a 7.9-inch display with a similar resolution.

Focus Taiwan has it from a Taipei-based researcher that Xiaomi is planning to release its first tablet in the third or fourth quarter of this year. The device might cost as low as $160.

Yesterday, we told you that Xiaomi bought the Mi.com domain for $3.6 million. The domain will be used to promote the company’s products around the world - including in the ten new markets where Xiaomi is going to expand in the near future. Most probably, we’re going to see Xiaomi’s tablet presented via the new website at some point.

At the moment, Xiaomi is one of China’s most successful smartphone makers. The company plans to sell no less than 60 million handsets throughout 2014. Its tablet-related ambitions are likely high as well, although it remains to be seen what its first attempt in this regard has to offer.
