Description

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.

Display

  • Display size:
    • 8.4 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1600 x 2560 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 359 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
