Chinese technology giant Huawei has silently introduced another mid-range tablet. The new MediaPad M5 lite was silently listed on company’s website and it comes with an aluminum unibody and a quartlet of speakers.
Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite: Specifications and Price
The MediaPad M5 Lite sports a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels and an aspect ratio of 16:10. The mid-range tablet is powered by a Kirin 659 SoC, which seems definitely outdated for 2018. The tablet is being offered in two memory variants – 3GB + 32GB and 4GB + 64GB. Huawei is particularly touting the quad speaker system tuned by Harman/Kardon as one of the main attraction here.
The speaker also works with Huawei’s Histen 5.0 sound system to replicate a 3D surround sound experience. The tablet comes with a massive 7,500mAh battery and runs EMUI 8.0 based on Android 8.0 Oreo. The tablet, according to Huawei, will be ideal for long multimedia and gaming sessions. Another additional feature is a stylus called Huawei M-Pen, which supports 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity. The stylus will only be available in select markets and it features a gun metal finish.
Huawei is currently the leader in China’s smartphone market and recently managed to dethrone Apple as the second largest smartphone maker during the second quarter of 2018. However, the Chinese smartphone maker does not really have a huge presence in the tablet market, despite having a range of devices in the MediaPad series.
