Huawei has announced a new mid-range tablet via its website – the MediaPad M5 lite. It features an aluminum unibody and a four (4) speakers.
The MediaPad M5 lite sports a 10.1-inch 16:10 display with 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and it’s powered by a rather outdated Kirin 659 SoC. The memory variants are two – 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB. The iconic feature, however, appears to be the quad Harman/Kardon-tuned loudspeakers that work with Huawei’s Histen 5.0 sound system to mimic 3D surround sound.
An ample 7,500 mAh battery ensures long multimedia and gaming sessions, at least according to Huawei, and the system runs on Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top.
Additionally, depending on your region, the tablet ships with Huawei’s M-Pen lite Stylus supporting 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity.
The MediaPad M5 lite will be available in Champagne Gold and Space Grey although pricing is unconfirmed.
