Chinese tech giant Huawei just announced their newest additions to their tablet lineup, the devices are called Huawei MediaPad M6 and they’re available in two sizes: 10.8-inch and 8.4-inch.

The main selling point of the new tablets is the powerful Huawei HiSilicon Kirin 980 CPU, which is a big upgrade over the MediaPad M5 that instead equipped a less appealing Kirin 960 processor. The Kirin 980 is also the world’s first mobile phone chip based on 7nm process technology, implementing Cortex A76 cores and the Mali-G76 GPU.

  1. M6 10.8″ Seems to be very interesting. External keyboard option is good thing. Price, is attractive.

  2. What are the risks of Google not allowing android support for this device?

  3. Funnily enough, I returned my recently purchased Samsung Tab S5e in favour of hanging on to my much more dynamic old Mediapad M5 10.8 Pro LTE. I love its quad speakers and stylus. I also got it cheap, which helped. The screen and battery life are fantastic too. I can’t see any reason to go for the new Mediapad M6, but at least Huawei are alive and productive despite Trump’s daft efforts. Killing off good tech is akin to burning good books.

  4. I own the M5 10.8 and its GREAT. So i would like to have the M6 10.8 without a doubt. The M5 has the best sound i ever heard on a mobile device. And its very snappie
