Over the past few years, many of us have come to know Huawei as a manufacturer of smartphones, and we probably wouldn’t associate them with tablets. However during IFA 2016, the company decided to surprise us all with a brand new tablet in the form of the Huawei MediaPad M3.
Now like we said, Huawei isn’t necessarily a name you’d associate with tablets, but with the MediaPad M3, it looks like the company has put quite a bit of effort and hardware into it. The tablet will sport an 8.4-inch display with a resolution of 2560×1600. We are also looking at the tablet being powered by Huawei’s very own Kirin 950 octa-core processor with 4GB of RAM, and 32/64GB of storage.
There is also an 8MP rear and front-facing camera Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Harman Kardon-certified stereo speakers, and a decently-sized 5,100mAh battery. It is a pretty decently-specced tablet but in terms of features, we guess there’s really nothing about it that truly makes it stand out, but if you’re after a decent tablet then maybe it could be worth taking a look at.
In terms of pricing, the base 32GB WiFi model will cost €349. The 64GB WiFi and 32GB LTE versions are priced a bit more at €399, while the 64GB LTE model will retail for €449. The tablet is expected to make its way to Asia and the Middle East, but no word on a North American release just yet.
