The site for certification of Bluetooth-devices has information on a new tablet Huawei MediaPad M5, which apparently will be presented at CES 2018. At the same exhibition, there will be an announcement of smartphones Huawei Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro for the US market.
Judging by the data that got into the network, it’s about an 8.4-inch tablet with a screen resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels. As a hardware platform, the company’s chipset Kirin 960 was chosen, and for the software part, Android 8.0 Oreo with the EMUI 8.0 shell is responsible.
The novelty is likely to get an aluminum case, stereo speakers, a fingerprint scanner, as well as a standard audio jack and a USB Type-C port. In the model lineup, Huawei MediaPad M5 will take place higher than its predecessor Huawei MediaPad M3 but will keep a fairly affordable price tag around $ 350. But the model Huawei MediaPad M4 is likely not at all to see the light of the standard for Asian companies reasons.
Recall that the Huawei MediaPad M3 tablet was introduced at the IFA 2016, it was equipped with an 8.4-inch display with a resolution of 2560 × 1600 pixels, an 8-core Kirin 950 processor and a complete battery of 5100 mAh. The amount of RAM was 4 GB, and the capacity of the built-in storage is 32 GB or 64 GB. And already this year on the Ukrainian market came out new tablets Huawei MediaPad T3 with a diagonal screen 7, 8 and 10 inches.
One potential new device is that the MediaPad M5, a high-spec Android tablet computer that will supersede the MediaPad M3 published in 2016. We were big fans of this MediaPad M3, and although tablets actually are not as popular as they once were, we’ve got high hopes that this will be a nice one. This is what we think we understand about the Huawei MediaPad M5.
In case the last important Huawei tablet release was that the MediaPad M3, why is not the following heading to be the MediaPad M4? It is possible Huawei will bypass the MediaPad M4 – that the number 4 is frequently associated with poor luck in China and proceed directly to the MediaPad M5. A Bluetooth filing definitely backs this up, linking the version amounts SHT-W09 and SHT-AL09 together with all the MediaPad M5, following the tablets passed through its own eligibility labs in December.
Huawei established the MediaPad M3 in IFA 2016, as well as CES 2018 that the upcoming significant technology series on the horizon, so it is possible the M5 is going to be among Huawei’s brand new products shown there. The MediaPad M3 has been 350 euros upon launch, a cost which might be matched or improved upon to its MediaPad M5.
After the tablet passed via the Bluetooth qualification process – in which it had been really labeled as a smartphone-, we had been given a fantastic idea of what to expect. The display size is very likely to be 8.4-inches, just like the MediaPad M3, using a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution.
Android 8.0 Oreo is anticipated to operate on the MediaPad M5, as demonstrated by a data seen on a web site log, in which the SHT-AL09 sort of the M5 was apparently being analyzed. When Android 8.0 is installed, there’s a great chance Huawei’s very own EMUI 8.0 or even EMUI 5.1 user interface will probably be set up on the top.
The Bluetooth certificate also claims the Kirin 960 chip will power the tablet computer, and so will not arrive with the Neural Processing Unit (NPU) that is a part of their Kirin 970 chip fitted into the Mate 10 Pro. Details about RAM, cameras, memory, and connectivity are anonymous, together with the battery dimensions.
