Despite all the setbacks Huawei has faced in the recent past, it has been going strong in terms of releasing new smartphones. Surprisingly, the brand has not given up in the tablet space either, as we now have the new MediaPad M5 Lite, which is a 10.1-inch tablet that comes with a nifty stylus. Huawei is going to sell this tablet in India exclusively via Flipkart at a retail price of INR 21,990 starting from September 30 as part of the e-retail site’s Big Billion Days sale event. The M-Pen Lite stylus will be included in the box for free. Let’s now take a look at what the new tablet has to offer in terms of its technical specifications.
MediaPad M5 Lite Specifications, Features
The MediaPad M5 Lite is a 4G LTE capable smartphone that also offers support for 2.4GHz/5GHz Wi-Fi networks. Huawei has used a sturdy metallic chassis on the outside of this tablet. The display on the M5 Lite measures 10.1-inch diagonally and offers a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels with a pixel density of 224 PPI. To improve the viewing experience on this tablet, Huawei offers ClariVu 5.0 technology which is a software-based solution for improving color saturation and contrast. For more precision when using this touchscreen, you get the M-Pen lite stylus that offers 2048-layers of pressure sensitivity.
Powering the MediaPad M5 Lite is an octa-core HiSilicon Kirin 659 chipset. In India, this tablet will be offered in its 3GB RAM + 32GB storage configuration, with the option of adding an additional 256GB of storage with the use of a microSD card. For software, the tablet runs EMUI 8.0 that is based on Android 8.0 Oreo. It is unclear whether the brand will be able to push out any major OS updates for this tablet considering all the problems it has faced with getting access to Google Services.
Just as much care has been taken in the audio department where you have a total of four loudspeakers – one in each corner. Huawei has partnered up with Harman Kardon to design these speakers and paired them with Histen 5.0 audio technology for a more immersive listening experience. You can always choose to go the wired audio route by making use of the provided 3.5mm headphone jack. For imaging and video calls, both the front and rear of the tablet comes equipped with 8MP resolution sensors, where the one on the back additionally offer autofocus support.
When it comes to battery life, the MediaPad M5 Lite sports a massive 7500mAh cell that should offer incredible backup. Furthermore, the tablet ships with an 18W charger that is said to fully top up the device in less than 2.9 hours. Charging takes place over the included USB Type-C port.
