Honor announces two Honor Pad 5 tablets for India

Ro, 11 June 2019

Along with the Honor 20-series, the company also announced two tablets for the Indian market named Honor Pad 5 and they come in two flavors - 8" and 10.1".

The 8-inch model is the more powerful option with Kirin 710 on board, 1920 x 1200px resolution screen and either 3GB or 4GB of RAM.

The slate's internal storage is 32GB or 64GB and it has single 8MP cameras on the front and back. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie with Magic 2.0 UI on top and interestingly, it offers stereo loudspeakers as well.

The 10.1-inch tablet, on the other hand, runs on slower and older Kirin 659 SoC with either 3GB RAM and 32GB storage or 4GB/64GB RAM combo.

It packs the same 1920 x 1200px resolution LCD but runs the older Android 8.0 Oreo with EMUI 8.0 on top. Actually, this is a re-branded MediaPad T5 for the Indian market.

Both models are offered only in Glacial Blue. The 8-inch Pad 5 retails for INR 15,499 ($225) for the base 3GB/32GB config while the 4GB/64GB variant asks INR 17,499 ($251). The 10-inch alteration sells for INR 16,999 ($244) and INR 18,999 ($275), respectively. The tablets will be made available via Flipkart starting July.

Using a more powerful and newer chipset on a smaller and cheaper tablet is just weird. The price are actually reasonable but with the on-going Google debacle, these tablets probably won't even get another major Android version update

The Honor Pad 5 8" seems like the MediaPad M5 Lite 8" https://www.gsmarena.com/huawei_mediapad_m5_lite_8-9668.php Looks exactly the same, shares all the exact same specs except for the camera.
