Huawei introduces its new MediaPad M5 tablets

Huawei today held its Mobile World Congress event, where it announced the MateBook X Pro, along with some new Android tablets. Historically, the company's MediaPad lineup have been great for media consumption, as we stated in our review of the M3 Lite, but the new MediaPad M5 offers more.

The new tablets come in 8.4- and 10.8-inch sizes, and they both have similar specs. They're powered by a Kirin 960 chipset, and they ship with 4GB RAM and between 32GB and 128GB of internal storage. The display resolution comes in at 2,560x1,600, so obviously there's a higher pixel density on the smaller one. The battery is 5,100mAh on the 8.4-inch model, and 7,500mAh on the larger one.

Other than just the size and the battery, the big difference between the two models if that the 10.8-inch variant has Pogo pins on the bottom, meaning that you can clip on a keyboard if you need to get some work done.

There's also a variant of the 10.8-inch model that comes with the M-Pen, which is known as the MediaPad M5 Pro.

Huawei didn't specify availability or pricing on these new Android tablet just yet, but we'll keep you updated when it does.
