Huawei MediaPad M2 showcased in promo video as the
Last month, Huawei quietly unveiled a new tablet called MediaPad M2, a 7.8mm-thin slate that comes to succeed the MediaPad M1 from 2014. While the M1 is a rather modest device, the M2 offers pretty attractive features, some of which are now showcased in an official promo video.

Presented by Huawei as "the world's first unibody 4G LTE tablet", the MediaPad M2 runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and sports an 8-inch IPS display with 1200 x 1920 pixels. The device is powered by Huawei's own 64-bit octa-core Kirin930 processor (clocked at 2.0 GHz), has an 8 MP camera on the back, and a 2 MP camera on the front. The MediaPad M2 also delivers superior sound thanks to Harman/Kardon's Clari-Fi technology, a HiFi Codec Hi6402 (developed by Hauwei), and stereo speakers with "Super Wide Sound."

The M2 has two versions: a regular one that comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory, and a premium one with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space. Both support microSD cards, and have 4800 mAh batteries inside.

Huawei was supposed to launch the MediaPad M2 last month (first in France). However, right now the tablet doesn't seem to be available to purchase anywhere in the world, and there's no word on its price.

Isn't it annoying Huawei just brag themselves they're the 1st 4g LTE Unibody tablet in the world when they're certainly not?

Sony even bragged that their Xperia Z4 Tablet as the "world's slimmest tablet" when it's the same as the iPad Air 2. This is all a bad and unprepared marketing.

Sony said "world's slimmest waterproof tablet" Which is true as far as I know, the iPad Air 2 isn't waterproof

I wish it had an AMOLED display but a very nice looking tablet though.

IPS display is good enough.

AMOLED is better when it comes to watching videos, which is generally what someone with an LTE tablet wants to do, but it's expensive to make. From what I know, the Samsung Tab S are the only tablets with AMOLED and they look amazing.

Well IPS screen is very good for watching vids. But once u have amoled and surfing on net or reading , the screen is yellow not white .. dark .. disadvantage of amoled ..

Something tells me the next Nexus tablet is going to be based on this.

They show us that they have paid a great deal towards audio but there isn't front facing speakers. It wouldn't be that difficult because this is a tablet. I too wish that this was an Amoled Display for richer media experience while save battery. My biggest gripe with this should be the UI, which looks exactly like iOS but other than that Huawei has done a Good job

Still won't beat the iPad and for a special honorable mention, the Surface Pro series.
