Which LTE Tablets can send music in LDAC or LHDC Bluetooth Codec?

Finally I want to try to go wireless with my music (512 GB microSD card). At least partly. I do not want to have another Bluetooth headphone (I have some on ear and IEMs) but this time I want to try a Bluetooth receiver to feed my wired IEMs or over ear headphones. My favourite so far is the Shanling UP4 as it has a dedicated volume wheel and supports better Bluetooth codecs als LDAC and LHDC / HWA.

I read a few times that since Android 8.0 every device has LDAC support and some even LHDC. No, this is not true, at least for me:
Neither my Huawei Mate 10 that was billed as the first to support LHDC does offer this for me nor my Samsung tablet S6 which only has SBC! (I enabled developer options on all my Android devices.) The best device I have regarding Bluetooth is my newly bought backup smartphone, a super cheap Xiaomi Poco M3: This has every better codec activated, aptX HD, LDAC and LHDC. But i like to have a nice "big" screen of 10 inch or so for decent album art and therefore I am searching for a tablet with LTE as the only device to take on a ride to the park (I have a multi-SIM contract).

Is there a decent modern tablet (that supports 512 GB microSD cards ) that actually supports LDAC or LHDC/HWA codecs?
(Perhaps the Huawei MediaPad M5? The faster Huawei MatePad Pro has LHDC but accepts only the proprietary smaller NM cards)

Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 supports LDAC/Aptx. It's the LTE version I own. Nice tablet and not too expensive. Use it with my Hiby W3 which also supports LDAC.

The hint to the Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 sounds good: My newest phone, a Poco M3 also has a Snapdragon 662 as CPU and it can handle music apps fast enough for me. But it always falls back to aptX when connected to my Sony LDAC headphones. It obvoiusly is not easy to get the highe codecs really working.

I finally had success: After Chris from techtabletsw.com advised buying the Lenovo P11 Pro directly from China as XiaoXin Pad Pro I bought one for online reading. After two weeks it arrived.

And to my surprise it has all current Bluetooth-Audio-Codecs: SBC, AAC, aptX, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive-Audio, aptX TWS+Audio, LDAC. And it connected without any problems to my Sony Blueetooth headphone mit LDAC (and aptx HD). Stable connection in all rooms of our flat. The only feature it is missing is LTE. But for music listening from the big SD card with a nice big screen for the covers in good wireless quality this is perfect.
