Huawei had introduced three new Android-based tablets at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, and after covering the initial launch of these devices, we’re here to take a look at their specifications. Huawei announced the MediaPad M5 8.4, MediaPad M5 10.8 and MediaPad M5 Pro 10.8, all of which are quite similar in terms of specs, but not identical. Before we begin talking about specs, it’s worth noting that all three tablets are made out of metal, and they sport the same design. All three devices ship with a single camera on the back, and a front-facing fingerprint scanner.
The Huawei MediaPad M5 8.4 is the smaller out of the bunch, this tablet sports an 8.4-inch 2560 x 1600 IPS display (359 PPI), while the other two tablets come with the same resolution display, but they sport 10.8-inch panels. Android 8.0 Oreo comes pre-installed on all three tablets, along with Huawei’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 8.0 skin. Huawei’s Kirin 960 64-bit octa-core processor fuels all three tablets, this is no longer the company’s flagship processor, but it’s still quite powerful. All three tablets come with 4GB of RAM, the MediaPad M5 8.4 and MediaPad M5 10.8 will be available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB storage variants (128GB of storage will be available in China only), while the MediaPad M5 Pro 10.8 comes in 64GB and 128GB storage variants.
