The Chinese manufacturer Huawei has via its official website announced the Huawei C5 10 2020 in China. The tablet manufacturing market has not been lucrative as the smartphone market. Since the advent of smartphones with really large screens, the sales of tablets dips even further.

Last year, Huawei upgraded its tablet family with the MatePad Pro. The series now includes the 5G version of MatePad Pro, the standard MatePad, and the entry-level MatePad T8. However, the Chinese company will not stop with the MatePad series. Current information shows that the company will retain its C series tablets.

The placement of the power button and front camera are quite weird. However, this is for a good course – the device is designed to work seamlessly on landscape mode. If you hold this device in portrait mode, the power button will be on top of the device. In addition, the camera will be on the left while the volume rocker will be on the right of the device.
The device is powered by Huawei’s Kirin 810 SoC which is paired with 4GB of RAM as well as 64GB and 128GB of built-in storage.
