Huawei MediaPad M5 Starts Getting Updated With GPU Turbo Functionality

By Radu Iorga

It appears that Huawei is not only bringing the GPU Turbo functionality to phones, but also tablets, like the Huawei MediaPad M5. The device has just started receiving the new feature, as revealed online by a few sources. Let’s see what it brings.

Weeks ago Huawei announced that the GPU Turbo update would be coming to Honor and Huawei P and Mate series device, plus a few other midrangers. Tablets were also part of the package. This software released improves graphics efficiency by up to 60% and also reduces system on chip energy usage by 30%. The software is being rolled out to smartphones gradually and slates too.

Huawei announced on Weibo that owners of the MediaPad M5 will get the GPU Turbo update from today. This is the first tablet to support the gaming-oriented system and in order to make it work, you need to go to Settings/System/System Update. This will improve your battery consumption in gaming and also preserve the battery. Performance should also go up. Huawei MediaPad M5 is a tablet released in April 2018 and it’s available in 3 versions: an 8.4 inch model, 10.8 inch one and MediaPad M5 Pro.

All of them rely on a Kirin 960 CPU, 4 GB of RAM and 32, 64 or 128 GB of storage. The devices run on Android 8.0, have 13 megapixel cameras and generous 2560 x 1600 pixel resolutions. The bigger units have quad speakers, so audio is also a premium feature here.

Huawei MediaPad M5 Now Available in USA Priced at $319, With Harman Kardon Speakers

By James A.

Huawei’s latest tablet, the MediaPad M5 is now available in USA, with a price tag of $319 and you can find it on Amazon or Newegg. The price is actually solid, considering what you’re getting on the multimedia side of things.

The device was announced at MWC 2018 and I have to admit it took its time to reach the States. It comes in 8.4 inch and 10.8 inch flavours, both powered by the Kirin 960 processor and 4 GB of RAM, as well as 64 GB of storage, plus microSD card slot. There’s a 13 MP back camera here, plus an 8 MP front shooter and Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top too.

Both types of diagonals share the same res: 2560 x 1600 pixels and the 10.8 inch model comes with a 7500 mAh battery, which is certainly more generous than the 5100 mAh one of the small unit. Keep in mind that the above mentioned price only applies to the 8.4 inch model, while the bigger one goes for $359.

A Pro version is also available, at $449, with a Huawei M Pen Stylus and a keyboard dock, which offers access to a custom desktop UI. The 8.4 inch Huawei MediaPad M5 also has Harman Kardon tuned speakers with 360 degree and promises 10 hours of battery life. You can get it here.

MWC 2018: Huawei MediaPad M5 Now Official, in 8 inch, 10 inch and Pro Version

By Radu Iorga

After a bunch of leaks and specs unveiled online, the Huawei MediaPad M5 tablets finally came to life today at MWC 2018. We did get an 8 inch, 10 inch and Pro model as rumored. The Pro even bundles an M-Pen stylus and the exciting novelty is the Harman Kardon set of acoustics.

Huawei MediaPad 5 8 is an 8.4 inch tablet, while the MediaPad M5 10 is a 10.8 inch slate. The MediaPad M5 10 Pro takes everything up to the best config possible, complete with LTE, M-Pen stylus, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. All the slate share Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top and a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. Harman Kardon acoustics are here, as quad speakers included at least on the big unit, but I also expect the small one to get some action.

The M-Pen provides 4096 levels of pressure and plays nicely with photo editing and drawing software. Huawei MediaPad M5 8 packs a Kirin 960 CPU, 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and its 8.4 inch IPS LCD display has a 2560 x 1600 pixel res. There’s a 13 MP back camera and an 8 MP front shooter, which are shared by the 10 inch model too. Both have metal chassis and Quick Charge.

 

The smaller unit has a 5100 mAh battery, while the biggie goes with a 7500 mAh unit. All models have WiFi and LTE versions and the 10.8 incher measures 7.3 mm in thickness and weighs 498 grams. An interesting feat for the M-Pen is the fact that it offers special shortcut buttons, for screen capture, deleting images, starting apps and more. There’s also an optional keyboard for the 10 inch tablet.

Huawei MediaPad M5 8 starts at $428, MediaPad M5 10 at $490 and the M5 10 Pro at $613.

New Huawei MediaPad M5 Renders Appear, Confirming Harman Kardon Acoustics

By Radu Iorga

We’re just one hour away from the big Huawei event at MWC 2018, where the Chinese company is going to unveil the MediaPad M5 tablets. Just before the launch some new renders of the devices appeared, focusing on the 10 inch version and revealing its Harman Kardon acoustics.

We’ve already seen the MediaPad M5 a bunch of times, but the device gets reconfirmed this way. It seems that it’s going to have a 10.8 inch display in the big version and also a ton of speaker holes for some high end Harman action. We also see a big 13 megapixel back camera and a generous 8 MP front shooter, plus 3 metal pins at the bottom back, probably for attaching accessories.

Built out of metal, the device is said to have a Kirin 960 CPU inside, 32 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM. I expect that the Pro model will have 64 GB of storage, an M Pen stylus and more goodies. A microSD card slot is also here, plus we’re going to get a keyboard accessory and a fingerprint scanner too. Strangely leaks have mentioned Android 7.0 Nougat instead of Oreo on board.

 

The waistline is 7 mm thick and the MediaPad M5 10 is just 499 gram heavy. A starting price of $490 is expected, while the LTE model will probably add $70 more. The 8 inch version may be cheaper.

Already certified by Bluetooth SIG and the FCC, the device was expected to debut in Barcelona at the end of the month in two versions: an 8.4 incher and a 10.1 incher (although it may also be 10.5 inches).

There’s even an extra MediaPad M5 Pro, with the codename “Cameron Pro”, which will come with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage. This one stands out through the support for the M-Pen stylus.

MediaPad M5 Pro only comes with LTE and will sell for around 520 euros ($642). All the new models are said to feature a Kirin 960 CPU, 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution and 4980 mAh battery, plus Android 8.0 Oreo.
