To add to their line up today with the Mate 8 and the female version of the Huawei watch. Huawei also announced a tablet named the MediaPad M2 10. It’s a 10 inch tablet with a 1080p screen. Not the most high res screen but Huawei seems to like to stick with lower resolutions and give you max battery life. They also seem to be sticking with micro USB for the time being, instead of making the move to USB-C.
What is particularly interesting about this tablet is that it’s powered by their own in house Kirin CPU. Huawei doesn’t normally release their hardware in the US using their own processor. As well as the fact that it has an active stylus named the M-Pen. Something else to take note of is that it will ship with Android 5.1 with EMUI 3.1. Instead of the latest version of Android 6 Marshmallow.
Huawei also bragged about the Harmon Kardon speakers, so the sound should be pretty good. One more great feature is microSD support for cards up to 128gb. You’ll be able to choose between a silver or gold finish, and it should launch Q1 of 2016.
