Along with the new Nova 5 smartphone family, Huawei has also renewed its range of tablets by presenting the MediaPad M6 in an 8.4 and 10.8-inch version. These are two twin high-end proposals, which differ only in their display diagonal, battery capacity and main orientation.
As anticipated by the previous rumors, we find ourselves in front of two tablets equipped with SoC Kirin 980, 2560×1600 pixel LCD display for both diagonals, 4GB of RAM, 64 and 128GB of internal memory expandable via microSD, front camera of 8 MegaPixels, main from 13 MegaPixels, 4 stereo speakers made in collaboration with Harman Kardon, jack for 3.5mm headphones and operating system based on EMUI 9.1 and Android 9 Pie with support for Desktop mode to be exploited with the appropriate keyboard.
Both will be available in both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + LTE versions on all configurations (for a total of 4 combinations per diagonal). On the smaller model there is a 6,100 mAh battery, while on the older brother it goes to 7,500 mAh, both rechargeable via the Type-C connector. The tablet is made of glass (front) and aluminum (body), while the colors will be two: white-gold and black-gray. In this regard, however, we await further details. It also appears that only the 10.8 “model is equipped with a front fingerprint sensor.
At the moment there are no known dates and prices for the western market, but the Chinese ones are known. The first to arrive will be the 10.8 “model, which can be booked today and ready to go on the market on July 10. The prices of the various configurations are:
Wi-Fi 4GB + 64GB – 2299 yuan (about 296 euros)
