Along with its announcement of new versions of the Nexus 6P and Huawei Watch, the folks from Huawei also introduced some fresh new hardware today at CES.
First up is the Huawei MediaPad M2 10.0, a tablet that runs Android 5.1 beneath Huawei’s custom EMUI 3.1 user interface. As its name suggests, the MediaPad M2 10.0 has a 10-inch display that has a resolution of 1920x1080. Other features on the outside of the MediaPad M2 10.0’s full-metal body are 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras and a stylus (with the gold version) for doodling or taking notes.
On the inside of that aluminum body lives an octa-core Kirin 930 processor paired with either 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage in the silver model, or 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage in the gold version. No matter which color you choose, though, you’ll get a microSD slot for adding more storage. Rounding out the MediaPad M2 10.0’s spec list is a fingerprint sensor, 6660mAh battery, and Wi-Fi connectivity.
The MediaPad M2 10.0 will launch in the US in Q1 2016, and Huawei says that it’ll share pricing closer to release.
The second Android device shown by Huawei today is the GX8. The Huawei GX8 shares many features with the MediaPad M2 10.0, including a full metal body, 1920x1080 display resolution, Android 5.1 with EMUI 3.1, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 16GB of storage, a microSD slot, 2GB of RAM, and a fingerprint sensor. The GX8’s spec list also includes a 5.5-inch screen, octa-core Snapdragon 615 processor, and 3000mAh battery.
The Huawei GX8 has been available globally since September 2015, but it’ll be making its way to the US for the first time in Q1 2016. It’s price will be set at $349.99.
