Huawei announces MediaPad M6 in 8.4" and 10.8" flavors
In addition to the three nova 5 phones Huawei also introduced its latest tablet offerings with the MediaPad M6 duo today. We have two slates actually - coming in at 8.4 inches and 10.8 inches. The only other difference between them is battery capacity.
Both MediaPad M6 versions come with LCD panels of 2560×1600 pixel resolution with nicely slim bezels (in tablet terms, at least). The larger 10.8-inch version packs a 7,500mAh battery while the smaller one comes with a 6,100 mAh cell.
Both tablets come with 8MP front cams and 13MP rear shooters. This year Huawei also added a Harman Kardon branded quad speaker setup for the larger tablet for more immersive media consumption.
The Huawei MediaPad M6 8.4 and 10.8 are powered by the Kirin 980 SoC and come with 4GB RAM while storage can be either 64GB or 128GB. They run EMUI 9.1 based on Android 9.1.
Thanks to the new pogo pins Huawei is also bringing a keyboard case for added productivity. The slates also have USB Type-C ports, 3.5mm audio jacks and microSD card slots.
The MediaPad M6 10.8 is available for pre-order starting today and will hit stores on July 10. The starting price for the base 4GB/64GB Wi-Fi-only model is CNY 2,299 ($335) and goes up to CNY 3,499($510) for the top of the line 4/128GB version with cellular network support.
The smaller 8.4-inch tab goes on pre-order July 7, while official sales start July 20. Pricing starts at CNY 1,999 ($290) for the 4/64GB Wi-Fi model and goes up to CNY 2,699 ($392) for the 4/128GB cellular version.

My Samsung S10 tablet battery died so I purchased the Huawei Mpad 10.8. The sound is great, everything else is work in progress. It is HEAVY, the home button is exactly wher you place your thumb to hold it, the screen extend well into the edges ...

im pretty sure they have that in mind already... but maybe they also considered the "bottle neck effect" when it runs. not sure though but just maybe

Lol, 4gb of ram in tablets is a crime circa 2019. Basically tablets need minimum 2x ram than phones to be useful... People buy PoS like this one and then wander why it ends up collecting dust somewhere. Tablets these days can and do replace...
