Huawei is trending in the news like never before. The P8 is already quite a popular phone, and the Honor 7’s success is no secret… today, the company announced the M2 tablet, which can be thought of as the large-screen sibling of the P8.
The M2 comes with a decent set of specifications and is priced 1588 Yuan (US$255) for the entry-level 16GB WiFi only version. Pricing goes all the way up to 2288 Yuan for the 64GB LTE version, with intermediary variants being 64GB WiFi only and 16GB LTE version priced at 1888 Yuan (US$304).
Lets take a look at the specifications:
- 8-inch 1920 x 1080p display
- Kirin 930 octa-core CPU
- 3GB RAM
- 16-64GB on-board storage
- 8 mega-pixel main camera
- 5 mega-pixel front facing camera
- 4800mAh battery
Huawei claim that the tablet is 99.5% metal, so that should justify the pricing if not anything else. Also, the device is just 7.8mm thick which should make it easy to carry around.
The Huawei M2 runs EMUI 3.0, which is Huawei’s take on a forked ROM. The fork is based on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
