Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite specifications
The “premium” tablet is powered by the octa-core Kirin 659 chipset along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. Graphics are handled by the Mali T830 MP2 GPU. On the outside, it has a smooth metallic body.
As the name suggests, the MediaPad M5 Lite has a 10.1-inch IPS panel with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080. Audio is a big part of its experience too, as the slate has quad-speakers from Harman Kardon for a stereo effect.
A big 7,500mAh battery runs the Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite 10, with support for 18W Huawei QuickCharge over USB Type-C. It has an 8MP camera on the front and the back. The product page suggests that the tab will run on Android 8 Oreo.
The M-Pen Stylus can also be purchased separately for more creative uses. It has a pressure sensitivity of 2,048 points.
