Building on its success in delivering beautifully-designed and powerful high-end mobile devices, HUAWEI, a top tech giant globally, added another range to its award-winning HUAWEI MediaPad Series by introducing the new HUAWEI MediaPad M5 and M5 Pro in Malaysia.
Huawei’s unrivalled commitment to innovation for over 20 years in the industry has now culminated in the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 range, designed to be an excellent platform for casual and hardcore gamers alike, and for the younger generation that seeks out new experiences and has a hunger for both creating and consuming content.
Available in 8.4-inch for the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 and 10.8-inch for the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 pro, the range offers the latest technology to provide high-quality experiences when playing games, listening to music, watching videos or working on-the-go, which translates into the ultimate playground within the fingertips of each user.
Speaking at the introduction, Bill Liu, Country Director, HUAWEI Consumer Business Group said, “HUAWEI MediaPad Series was created to satisfy the needs for an outstanding entertainment experience and on-the-go productivity – a perfect balance for work and play. It has come to be known for offering top-of-the-line audio/video capabilities, stunning displays, and outstanding performance, wrapped in a sleek and sophisticated design. These cutting-edge features combine to create a series of tablets that differentiates itself from the other tablets and notebooks in the market, and to offer something uniquely compelling to each and every one of our users.”
Ultimate Gaming Experience to Keep You Hooked for Hours
With a clear and crisp large screen, slim and easy-to-hold design, and powerful processor, the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 is an excellent platform for casual and hardcore gamers alike. Thanks to Huawei EMUI 8.0, performance when gaming is optimized from the chip-level up, reallocating processing resources and minimizing distractions from social apps like Facebook and Instagram. This means users can stay in the moment and focus on maintaining their streak or beating their top scores.
To keep users going through the longest of gaming marathons, the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 packs a 5,100 mAh and 7,500 mAh battery in the 8.4-inch and 10.8-inch variants respectively to deliver up to 11 and 12 hours of 1080p video playback. When the battery does finally start to run low, the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 supports Huawei’s Quick Charge technology which can fully charge the 8.4-inch tablet in under 2 hours and the M5 Pro in under 3 hours – setting a standard for the industry.
Born Perfect for Gamers – Form Meets Function in Design
The HUAWEI MediaPad M5 series has taken the simple yet appealing design of its predecessor and evolved it to deliver something even more beautiful. Taking cues from its widely-lauded smartphones, the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 adopts a U-shaped antenna design, another breakthrough in tablets. A nano modeling technology and sleek metal body create an elegant and beautiful industrial design that is remarkable for its simplicity – a trademark of the HUAWEI MediaPad Series.
Additionally, Huawei has committed to ensuring the reliability of the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 screen. The large screens on tablets, particularly those the size of the 10.8-inch HUAWEI MediaPad M5 Pro, can often be less resilient to the bumps, knocks and drops of everyday use on-the-go. To give customers peace of mind and a product they can rely on, Huawei’s lab engineers have developed a structural design that utilizes a metal frame to reinforce the edges and protect the screen of the HUAWEI MediaPad M5, delivering an outstanding looking screen for enhanced gaming experience that’s a pleasure to use while meeting Huawei’s stringent product safety and reliability standards.
Outstanding Audio and Video for Immersive, All-round Entertainment
Ergonomically designed with a 2.5D glass – an industry-first, and a vibrant 2560×1600 display that captures even the subtlest details in images, the sleek and powerful 8.4-inch and 10.8-inch tablets also includes the ClariVu 5.0 display enhancement technology, using intelligent algorithms to adjust photos and video playback if images are unclear or the contrast ratio drops, keeping them crisp and clear.
The HUAWEI MediaPad M5 also features an industry-leading display enhancement algorithm that adds 20 percent to the dynamic range of the screen, its contrast, sharpness and color saturation, making dark pictures one again vivid. For users’ comfort, it also employs cutting-edge technology through the Eye Comfort Mode to filter out blue light for a carefree viewing experience.
Tuned by Harman Kardon, the 8.4-inch and 10.8-inch tablets are equipped with two and four speakers respectively, and supported by smart power amplifier chips, speaker boxes and a loudspeaker to produce sound that you will never forget. On top of that, HUAWEI Histen technology brings 3D surround sound experiences to the HUAWEI MediaPad M5. By effectively expanding the stereo field and offering rich sound details and levels, it presents 3D sound with a clear sense of distance so as to result in total audio enjoyment. HUAWEI Histen technology provides immersive 3D audio through the loudspeakers and fully supports Hi-Res audio enjoying exceptional quality sound.
Elegant interaction and total control with HUAWEI M-Pen for the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 Pro
The 10.8-inch HUAWEI MediaPad M5 Pro comes with the latest HUAWEI M-Pen to give users an even more intuitive means of interaction with their tablet. The HUAWEI M-Pen makes taking meeting notes, drawing and designing easier and more effortless.
The HUAWEI M-Pen is lightweight and ergonomically designed so that it sits comfortably in the hand and flows smoothly across the screen on the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 Pro as if writing on paper. Equipped with world-class 4096-level pressure sensitivity it can capture every detail users jot down. Meanwhile, buttons on the body of the pen provide shortcuts for taking screenshots, deleting images and launching apps, giving the user even greater control of their tablet.
The HUAWEI M-Pen is easily and quickly charged with the HUAWEI Media M5 Pro’s USB Type-C charger – a full charge takes only 100 minutes. From there, users can count on up to 50 days of use (based on two hours of usage per day).
