Back at CES last week, Huawei showed off its thin, large-screen tablet, the Huawei Mediapad M2. The tab came with a 10-inch screen, large enough for your entertainment needs and featured a thin metal body measuring just 7.3mm in thickness. Now, Huawei has officially announced the device in China, in four different versions.
The Huawei Mediapad M2 tablet comes in two color options, namely Silver and Gold. The base version, i.e. Silver 16GB starts at 2288 Yuan ($347) for the Wi-Fi and 2688 Yuan ($408) for the LTE version. If you want a larger storage version i.e. Gold 64GB, you will have to shell out 2888 Yuan ($440) for the Wi-Fi only and 3288 Yuan ($500) for the LTE version. Not the cheapest of the tablets that we have seen lately, but it features some decent specs to justify the price.
The tablet comes with the Kirin 930 octa-core chipset with Mali-T628 MP4 GPU. There will be 2GB + 16GB and 3GB + 64GB memory variants available. At the back, you will find a 13MP primary camera, while, up front, you have a 5MP sensor for things like video calling. The battery isn’t the largest we have seen in the segment, with a capacity of 6600mAh, still, it should be good enough for a day.
Apart from the usual specs, the highlight of the tablet is the fingerprint sensor on board. You don’t usually find fingerprint ID on a tablet, so this is definitely one of its selling points. Another important feature of the device is the on board stylus. This active capacitive pen will further enhance the user experience on the device. Also, you have four 1W speakers with a separate amplifier chip to ensure the M2 satisfies your entertainment needs as well.
The tablet will go on sale in China on January 15. [source]
