The new Honor Tab 5 is an 8-inch Android tablet that starts at the equivalent of US$163, but even the LTE version with 4/64 GB still comes for less than US$250. This slate uses the HiSilicon Kirin 710 processor with GPU Turbo 2.0, runs Android Pie with Magic UI 2.0 on top out of the box, and sports Dolby Atmos audio.

Huawei is one of the last big brands still releasing high-end Android tablets these days, but now it seems that the time has come for its sub-brand Honor to come up with a very attractive mid-ranger that rocks a Kirin 710 chip and starts around the equivalent of US$160.

In addition to the aforementioned HiSilicon processor, the Honor Tab 5 comes with the following highlights: 8-inch display with 1,920 x 1,200 pixels, stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support, 8 MP cameras on both sides, a 5,100 mAh battery, and Android Pie with Magic UI 2.0 on top. The memory/storage variant available are 3/32 GB and 4/64 GB, in both cases there are WiFi-only models and 4G LTE ones.

The best part of the story is that even the 4G LTE variant with 4 GB of memory and 64 GB of internal storage does not jump above the US$300 mark. In fact, its price is much lower, currently standing around US$225 (CN¥1,499).

Sadly, there is also an issue - the Honor Tab 5 can only be found in China for now, and we have no information about a possible launch in the US or any other market. Obviously, the more adventurous ones should be able to import it from GearBest, AliExpress, and so on.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
