Huawei MediaPad M3 octa-core tablet

Huawei MediaPad M3 octa-core tablet

Its stable mate the Nova Plus sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 3,340mAh cell, 16-megapixel rear shooter with OIS, and 8-megapixel auxiliary snapper.

It features a 2560 x 1600 pixel display, a Kirin 950 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB (or 64GB) of storage, and a 5,100 mAh battery that Huawei says should provide more than 11 hours of battery life, The tablet has stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon and it comes with AKG earbuds.

Today's smartphone users demand a device that empowers them to capture and share their favorite moments, anytime and anywhere.

Alas, both phones are also endowed with Huawei's Emotion UI - complete with the company's insane "knuckle sense" tech, which allows you to carry out various tasks by tapping the screen with your knuckles. And now there's another pair of Huawei phones to consider: the Huawei Nova and Huawei Nova Plus. The Huawei Nova, along with the Nova Plus are both marketed as being mid-range smartphones, meaning they're not created to compete with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S7 or iPhone 6s - and the price reflects that.

Alongside the Nova, Huawei also unveiled the Nova Plus, a slightly larger version of the Nova with all the same specifications apart from a bigger 5.5-inch display, a better 16MP camera and an even larger 3340mAh battery. The new nova series features a stunning multi-curve design, camera advances for more vivid photography and performance updates for enhanced usability.

The tablet comes with a choice of 32GB or 64GB of built in storage and there is also a microSD card slot for extra storage. There's a circular fingerprint reader on the rear, mounted centrally, which can be used to pull down the notifications menu, swipe through gallery photos and answer calls, and it's paired with NFC for contactless payment via Android Pay. Software-wise, the MediaPad M3 relies on Android Marshmallow with Huawei's Emotion UI running atop. There's a 12mp, f/2.2 aperture camera and an 8mp, f/2.0 front-facing camera. It is backed by a 3000mAh battery that is sealed behind the sturdy Aluminum body.

Huawei is also offering a premium after-sales service with the Huawei P9. USB-C, however, is a jump forward, meaning you've got a lot more data capability rolling into the phone - and if USB-C headphones take off, an option for that too. The device will go on sale later this month, as yet there are no details on pricing.

Huawei has been on a bit of a winning streak recently in this department and the MediaPad M3 shows no sign of that trend changing. They come in a range of colors including Titanium Gray, Mystic Silver, and Prestige Gold.
