Huawei announced its latest three Android 8.0 tablets at MWC in Barcelona in late February, and a month later these tablets were released in Europe. But they haven’t been released in the US yet, and when or if they will be released is unknown. A lot of people are curious about these tablets though, so it is at lest possible to order them from the Chinese megastore Aliexpress where all three models of Huawei MediaPad M5 can be found.
I don’t know how these sellers will handle any potential warranty claims but there they are at least. I’m told that regular international stores might start selling them soon too though, so that could be a better option for those worried about a tablet possibly having problems.
The tablets are the Huawei MediaPad M5 8.4, with 2560 x 1600 display, HiSilicon Kirin 960 processor, 4GB of RAM, and optional 4G LTE.
Huawei MediaPad M5 Pro 10.8, with a 2560 x 1600 display, pen, HiSilicion Kirin 960 processor, 4GB of RAM, fingerprint sensor, quad speakers, and otpional 4G LTE.
Huawei MediaPad M5 10.8, also with a 2560 x 1600 resolution display, HiSilicion Kirin 960 processor, 4GB of RAM, optional 4G LTE, but no pen for this one.
All the specs are high on these tablets, and they have all been really thought through, and even include a taskbar and “Desktp View” so I totally get why people have been wanting to get their hands on them.
