Honor Tab 5 launches with 8-inch screen and 5,100 mAh battery

Ricky, 06 March 2019

Honor has announced a new entry-level tablet called the Honor Tab 5. It has an 8-inch display with Full HD resolution (1200x1920 px) and it runs a Kirin 710 CPU. The tablet itself looks nice and consists of a metal rear cover with plastic bumpers. This design language reminds us of the Honor 6x.


Thereís a front-facing shooter right above the display which is an 8MP fixed-focus camera. Meanwhile, around back thereís an 8MP camera with autofocus. Itís worth noting that this tablet does not have an LED flash. There are dual speakers on the tablet as well which are optimally placed at the top and bottom of the screen, best used when watching video.

This tablet also features GPU Turbo 2.0, which is Huaweiís mechanism built into EMUI for maximizing gaming performance. Itís worth noting only a handful of Google Play titles support GPU Turbo. The Tab 5 comes with either 3GB or 4GB of RAM and 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage. Meanwhile, you can expand storage up to 512GB using the microSD slot.

Powering the tablet is a 5,100 mAh battery which should yield fairly good battery life combined with the power-efficient Kirin 710.

The Tab 5 comes in both Wi-Fi and cellular options in China. The Wi-FI model starts at CNY 1,099 (~$164) while the cellular version starts at CNY 1,399 (~$209). The tablet is currently only available in China but we might expect to see the tablet hit other global markets eventually. You can already purchase the tablet from VMall, TMall, and Suning.com starting today.
