Huawei MediaPad M2 8.0 Tablet

Design and Display

Huawei MediaPad M2 shows off a design one would probably expect of higher-end devices. It sports an all-metal body and is dubbed “the world’s first unibody 4G LTE tablet” by its maker. The device flaunts an attractively svelte profile at just 7.8mm thick and weighs 310 grams.

Huawei MediaPad M2 crams in a large 8-inch diagonal display with Full HD (1920 x 1200 pixels) resolution. The IPS touchscreen offers wide-angle viewing and great colour reproduction. The display has Sun View and Eye Care features.

Camera and Storage

Huawei MediaPad M2 does well for itself in terms of cameras, even though tablets are not the ideal devices for capturing images. It rocks an 8 megapixels sensor with LED flash and autofocus on the rear along with a 2MP front-facing camera for selfies.

The slate comes in two storage versions: 16 GB and 32 GB. Extra storage memory can also be added via a microSD card slot.

Hardware and Software

Packing an octa-core Kirin 930 processor, Huawei MediaPad M2 is seemingly designed to deliver solid performance. The 64-bit chip is assisted by either 2 GB or 3 GB of RAM to deliver highly responsive performance.

Huawei says the eight-core chipset is engineered to intelligently switch between cores according to applications in use. The tablet will run on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop mobile operating system, overlaid with the Chinese company’s Emotion UI 3.1.

Other Features

The MediaPad M2 is designed to supply rich and immersive sound through its Karman Kardon stereo speakers with HiFi Codec Hi6402 and Clari-Fi sound technology. The tablet’s SWS 2.0 (Super Wide Sound) provides wider sound fields of 180-degree surround sound.

The slate, which packs a 4800mAh battery, boasts 4G LTE capability to enable users enjoy blazing fast connections. Huawei MediaPad M2 supports the latest Wi-Fi 802.11ac, which is about 40 percent faster.
