Huawei has been making waves with its recent release of the P8 and looks set to make more with the recent unveiling of its new tablet, the MediaPad M2.
It is an 8-inch tablet with a 1920×1200 resolutions display with a pixel density of 275 PPI. Powering it is a Kirin 930 chip with 3GB of RAM and a choice of either 16GB of 64GB of internal storage. Cameras are 8MP rear-facing and 5MP-front facing. Essentially, the MediaPad M2 is a tablet version of the P8 as seen with the similar CPU, RAM and storage options.
The standout feature of the MediaPad M2 is its 99.5% metallic body that adds that premium feel and look to the tablet. The display also has thin metal bezels so the device would not be too large and also, is only 7.8mm thick. We expect better than average sound quality as the device is announced to come with Harman Kardon Clari-Fi sound technology along with dual 1W speakers. Other features of the device include a 4800 mAh battery, optional LTE connectivity and runs on EMUI 2.0, which is Huawei’s iteration of Android 5.0 Lollipop.
For now, the MediaPad M2 is expected to launch in China on July 16th but no word has been received on its availability in other regions yet.
