The 8-inch FHD Android tablet will be very slim (7.8 mm) with separate Wi-Fi and LTE configurations.

In addition to showcasing the Mate S with Force Touch and the G8 smartphones, Huawei is also planning to launch the MediaPad M2 8.0 this month. The Android tablet was announced in May, but details had been quiet as the manufacturer was waiting until IFA to reveal final specifications and prices.

The MediaPad M2 8.0 will launch as two separate Wi-Fi and LTE models. Specifications for both models include:

  • 8-inch IPS display
  • 1920 x 1200 resolution
  • Quad-core HiSilicon Kirin 930 SoC
  • ARM Mali-T628 MP4 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16 GB eMMC
  • Rear 8 MP w/ auto-focus + Flash, Front 2 MP
  • 4800 mAh battery
  • Stereo speakers
  • Android 5.0 Lollipop with EMUI 3.0.5

Expect the Wi-Fi and LTE configurations to cost 280 Euros and 350 Euros, respectively, with their default Silver color.

Furthermore, Huawei will launch a premium Gold-colored version of the MediaPad M2 8.0 sometime later this year with largely the same specifications as above, but with 3 GB RAM and 32 GB eMMC instead. This higher-end variant is expected to weigh 310 grams and will cost 310 Euros and 400 Euros for the Wi-Fi and LTE models, respectively.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
