Huawei MediaPad M5 8 Specs


Just like some of the previous MediaPad tablets that are based on a Kirin chipset, the Huawei MediaPad M5 8 packs a similar 2.4GHz octa-core Kirin 960 processor. The tablet sports an 8.4-inch display with 1600 x 2560 pixels resolution. Huawei MediaPad M5 8 ships with Android 8.0 Oreo on board, fingerprint sensor and LTE support (for some models) which should make it even more appealing.
