Huawei MediaPad M2 10 – Specs, Features and Pricing Information

Described by Phone Arena as the coolest tablet at CES 2016, Huawei MediaPad M2 10 is an impressive device targeted at young users interested in rich multimedia experience. The humongous tablet packs a Full HD IPS display and is nicely decked out to deliver heavy-duty performance, long battery life and superb surround sound.

Huawei MediaPad M2 10 sports a premium unibody design with an all-aluminium chassis and a sandblasted metal finish. It is impressively thin at a thickness of just 7.35 millimetres, which drop to 5.0 millimetres at the thinnest point. The weight is about 500 grams. The massive tablet should feel comfortable to handle with this design.

Display and Camera

The tablet crams in a colossal 10.1-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, translating into a pixel density of about 224 ppi. Judging by the display technology, the MediaPad M2 10 should make for enjoyable content viewing with friends. The multi-touch screen supports an M-Pen stylus for writing drawing and opening applications. A pair of cameras is provided for image capturing. There is a 13-megapixel sensor with LED flash and autofocus on the rear, and another 5-megapixel unit on the front for selfies.

Hardware and Software

With a robust HiSilicon Kirin 930 octa-core processor on board, Huawei MediaPad M2 10 looks ready to deliver convincing performance and smooth multitasking. The 64-bit CPU is capable of speeds of up to 2 GHz. It will be supported in its processing task by either 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM, depending on version bought. Internal storage capacity will be 16 GB or 64 GB, expandable by another 128 GB via the microSD card slot. The slate will still run on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, which some people may consider a disappointing choice at this time. The OS will be coated by Huawei’s EMUI 3.1 skin.

Sundry Features

Juice will be supplied to Huawei MediaPad M2 10 by a very large 6660mAh battery which looks to support many hours of use. The tablet packs a fingerprint sensor for solid biometric protection. It supports ultra-fast 4G LTE connectivity along with 3G, Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ac. In addition to storage options, Huawei MediaPad M2 10 will differ in terms of Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity options. For superb sound, four Harman/Kardon speakers, two each for treble and bass, backed by SWS 2.0 Surround Sound and Clari-Fi Audio Restoration.

Availability and Pricing

It is expected that Huawei MediaPad M2 10 will be available in the first quarter of this year. The price for the standard 16GB, Wi-Fi only model has been put at $349 (converting to N70,000 – N100,000 in Nigeria based on current exchange rate reality), while highest-end version with 64GB storage, Wi-Fi and LTE will retail for $469 (around N93,000 – N135,000). The prices of the slate are reasonable. You may check out the smaller ASUS ZenPad C 7.0 if you are looking for a tablet that is a lot more cheaper.
