Huawei Honor Tab 5 is a New Android Tablet Priced Below $200

By Radu Iorga

Huawei’s sub brand Honor unveiled today a brand new tablet dubbed Honor Tab 5, priced at a mere $165. It’s available in China for starters and it’s going to pack an 8 inch display and a Kirin 710 processor.

The product is supposed to be part of the new wave of slates capitalizing on the rebirth of the segment. It comes as a preemptive strike for the iPad Mini 5, with midrange specs. The Kirin 710 CPU actually held its own against Snapdragon 636 and 660 on the Huawei Mate 20 Lite and Honor 8X phones, so it’s quite a good choice.

The tablet also brings a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a Mali G51 MP4 set of graphics, a 5100 mAh battery and stereo speakers. There’s also an 8 megapixel camera at the back and one at the front. Other specs include an audio jack, microSD card slot and the device is available in 4 configs in China:

  • 3GB/32GB/WiFi – $165
  • 4GB/64GB/WiFi – $195
  • 3GB/32GB/WiFi + 4G LTE – $210
  • 4GB/64GB/WiFi + 4G LTE – $225

No idea if and when the device debuts in Europe or USA. I see there’s also Dolby Atmos acoustics here.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 Rugged Tablet Launching in India on February 14th

By Radu Iorga

Samsung has started sending media invites for an upcoming event that involves a new rugged tablet coming from the South Korean device maker. It’s the Galaxy Active Tab 2, that will arrive with military specs in India on February 14th. We have details below.

The product is MIL-STD 810G certified, plus IP68 dust and water resistant. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 has been launched in the USA using the same tagline teased for India: “Make Hard Look Easy”. Interestingly, the slate is listed in the Business area of the Samsung site, so it may not be intended for the average consumer.

Galaxy Tab Active 2 comes in WiFi and LTE versions in USA, packing an 8 inch TFT display, with a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution. Inside we find the Samsung Exynos 7870 processor, 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. There’s also a microSD card slot and we sure hope that the Android 7.1 Nougat software of the US version has been bumped up to Oreo at least.

Other features include an 8 megapixel main camera and a front 5 MP shooter with face unlock. There’s also a fingerprint sensor for extra security. Samsung claims that this product can survive for half an hour in five foot deep water. It also comes with S Pen support, AR features and a 4450 mAh removable battery, good enough for 11 hours of usage apparently. You can also hook up a keyboard via POGO pins.

Alldocube M3 Gets Priced at Just $119.99: Compact 8 Inch Tablet With Helio X27 CPU

By Radu Iorga

The Alldocube M3 is an 8 inch tablet that was unveiled recently and now it’s getting a very solid offer on Banggood.com. It’s priced at just $119.99 for a limited time, down from the $129.99 price tag during the preorder period.

This is the first Alldocube tablet to feature the Helio X27 processor and it should reach pre sale next week. The $10 extra off comes via the couponn “0f9bf0”, used during the checkout on Banggood.com. Aside from this retailer, others are also prepping to sell the device, including Aliexpress for example and even Amazon 2 weeks from now.

There’s 3 GB of RAM on board, 32 GB of storage and it can even make phone calls. This is a deca core tablet, with 4G LTE and an 8 inch screen with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution. It’s got a 10 point OGS touchscreen display and Android 8.0 Oreo as the OS. There’s a 2 MP front camera and a 5 MP back shooter, with AF and LED flash even.

We add to that a 5500 mAh battery and everything is crammed within a 8.48 mm thick chassis. The 5500 mAh battery remains the selling point, if you ask me. You can get the device here.

Huawei Honor Waterplay 8 Tablet Debuts, With Kirin 659 CPU, Dual Back Cameras

By Radu Iorga

As promised by Huawei a few days ago, the Honor sub brand unveiled a new tablet on October 31st. The newcomer is dubbed Honor Waterplay 8 and comes with a Kirin 659 and more features, detailed below.

There’s 4 GB of RAM on board and dual rear cameras, a feature you don’t see every day on a tablet. The product is priced at $215, which is not bad at all for the specs you get. As the name says, this is a smaller version of the Honor Waterplay tablet, which debuted last year.

Honor Waterplay 8 packs an 8 inch IPS LCD display, with a 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution and 74.13% screen to body ratio. The Kirin 659 CPU is an octa core unit and it was found on the larger slate that was launched in October last year. There’s a Mali T830-MP2 GPU here, 64 GB of storage and a microSD card slot.

As far as the camera goes, there’s a dual back shooter, with a 13 MP and 5 MP combo. Upfront there’s an 8 MP cam with fixed focus and F/2.0 aperture. The 8 incher has a water resistant case, also dust resistant and IP67 certified. The Home button placed below the screen also works as a fingerprint scanner.

Huawei also included dual speakers from Harman Kardon here, to provide stereo sound. This may also work as a gaming device, since it has the trademark GPU Turbo technology, which increases graphics processing by 60%. The device also has WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, Glonass and USB Type-C port. We’ve got a 5100 mAh battery in the mix.

Huawei’s Honor Brand Prepares to Announce Waterplay 8 Tablet on October 31st

By Radu Iorga

Huawei is trying to steal some thunder away from Apple’s iPad Pro event from tomorrow, by holding its own Honor tablet event on October 31st. It’s actually the Honor sub brand holding the event, focused on the Magic 2 handset. The WaterPlay 8 tablet feels like an afterthought, but we’ll detail it anyway.

By the way, just so you know, we should also see a brand new Honor Watch and the Honor FlyPods wireless earbuds. Honor WaterPlay 8 is a smaller version of the Honor WaterPlay tablet, that was announced last year together with the Honor 7X handset. Last year we got a 10 inch model, but the new unit will have an 8 inch screen.

The post that teases the product launch also shows dual back cameras, something you don’t see on modern tablets. The device is expected to be waterproof, just like the 10 incher and just like the name hints. Sadly we don’t have a specs list, but we can speculate according to the last year model features.

That one had a 10 inch Full HD screen, a Kirin 659 CPU, 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB or 64 GB of storage. There’s an 8 megapixel back camera on both sides with Bokeh support (both of them). A front side fingerprint scanner and a 6660 mAh battery round up the list, plus Android Nougat. The newcomer should have a smaller battery and Android Oreo at least.
