Price info and partial specs for Huawei MediaPad M5 8 and 10 tablets leaked out
With Mobile World Congress (MWC) fast approaching, we're getting more and more detailed information about upcoming products expected to be revealed at the trade fair. Even though Huawei won't introduce its new flagship smartphone at MWC 2018, the Chinese company is likely to unleash a new wave of Android tablets under the MediaPad brand.

Late last month, a couple of renders of the MediaPad M5, an unreleased Android tablet, leaked online. Now we have additional information about the new MediaPad slates that Huawei plans to launch on the market in the coming weeks.

Apparently, Huawei MediaPad M5 8 (codename Schubert) will pack 4GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. The tablet will be available for purchase in Europe for around €380. The slightly larger Huawei MediaPad M5 10 (codename Cameron) will offer the same amount of memory, but it will cost €420.

Finally, the MediaPad M5 10 Pro (codename Cameron Pro) is said to include 4GB RAM and 64GB storage. The high-end Android tablet is expected to sell for €520, but it will offer LTE support as well.

On top of that, Huawei will launch a Bluetooth speaker called SoundStone, which will be compatible with all three MediaPad M5 models. However, the speaker will be available for purchase separately for €40.

I'd rather buy a Windows 10 convertible. Wait. I already have! With a 500GB SSD, Cellular capability, a powerful yet efficient Intel Core M Dual-Core with more muscle than Snapdragon 845, a 4,000mAh x 2 batteries (One in the tablet itself, other one in the detachable keyboard casing), 4 Gigs of RAM and an 11 Inch Display with full Office Suite. And it glides no matter what I through at it! But of course, my demands are rather minuscule as I don't do some heavy duty video editing or gaming etc. And... It also has an Android ROM (Marshmallow) available at XDA so I can basically run two Operating Systems on this thing if I so desire. What this tablet does? Oh well, G'Day!

There are advantages of running Windows 10, but Core M has far less muscle than Snapdragon 845, also, it's not as power efficient. I bet even the Kirin 960 will leave your Core M CPU in the dust.

So, you think an ARM SoC can beat an X86-64 intel dual-core with Turbo that one might find in a Mac Book? I'm fascinated! For people like you, even a 5 year old MT6582 faster than Core-M because it's clocked at 1.3Ghz whereas The Core-M gives up at just 600Mhz. Oh well...

I can't wrap my head around your old man's lack of Internet awareness with a millennial's annoying smugness. It's like you're artificial intelligence practicing on us or something....

Try installing Android and run antutu. You'll be surprised.

Mediapad m5 pro has good specs but I'm gonna wait and see what chrome OS tablets have to offer. Hope Huawei makes some chrome OS tablets.
