In terms of design, Huawei MediaPad M6 Turbo Edition looks pretty much similar to Honor 9X. It has a single module at the back with the company’s branding on the center. The tablet comes with an 8.4-inch 2K IPS display having a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels. Under the hood, the device is powered by Kirin 980 chipset coupled with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard memory. For graphics, the device makes use of the capable Mali-G76 GPU.
In terms of imaging, there is a single 13MP camera at the back accompanied by an LED flash. For casual video calling, the device features an 8MP sensor. All of these is fueled by a massive 6,100mAh battery which does not support fast charging though. The tablet will take more than 2 hours to charge completely from zero to 100%. As per the claims, a single charge can give you 12.5 hours of video playback. For gaming, the tablet supports GPU Turbo 3.0 which is said to increase GPU and network acceleration.
For audio, it has stereo speakers with the support of Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. It is the first table to come with such audio enhancements. Speaking of first, Huawei MediaPad M6 Turbo Edition also comes with PC-grade liquid cooling. It has 200% larger heat dissipation area and can lower GPU temps by 5 degrees. The cooling tube used is 120mm long having three layers of graphite and thermal conductivity back cover. Another key addition is the Turbo button which is textured just like the OnePlus’s alert key. The Turbo key opens up game-specific features such as Game Space, memory clean function and various other game customizations.
