If you’re going to be in the market for a new Android tablet, Huawei might have one to consider.
During this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Huawei is announcing a brand new tablet with a display that measures in at 10.1 inches. That screen has a resolution of 1920×1200, and there is an octa-core Kirin 659 processor under the hood. The MediaPad M5 Lite also features 3GB of RAM and 32GB of built-in storage, with a microSD card slot for expandable storage if you need more, up to 256GB. The battery measures in at 7500mAh, and supports Huawei’s QuickCharge feature.
There is an 8-megapixel camera on the back and on the front, and Huawei is bundling a stylus in the package as well. Huawei says the tablet’s speakers are tuned by Harman Kardon, so the sound profile should be pretty good. And Huawei also included something called Kid’s Corner, which means parents can set app time limits, control access, and even set up individual profiles. The fingerprint reader can allow individual access to those profiles on the tablet.
The new tablet is running Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box, underneath Huawei’s EMUI 8.0 custom software.
The MediaPad M5 Lite lands in the United States in “late January”, and it will retail for $299.
