Kirin 960-powered Huawei MediaPad M5 leaks
A new Huawei tablet has been spotted in Bluetooth certification documents. The device carries the 'MediaPad M5' moniker, with documents revealing SHT-W09 and SHT-AL09 model numbers.
The previous MediaPad M series tablet Huawei launched was the MediaPad M3, so it's likely the company will stick to Chinese practices and skip number 45.
Some of the key specs for the slate were also confirmed, including Kirin 960 SoC with octa-core CPU, 8.4-inch 2560 x 1600 pixel display, Bluetooth 4.2, and Android 8.0 Oreo. No information on the tablet's pricing and availability was provided, though.

Since my 8.4" M3 and the new M5 are 16x9, a wide screen movie will be very near the size it would be on a larger tablet. I like is the sharp high resolution screen. And this tablet is much lighter than a 10" tablet.

Totally agree with Travis. For me 7 inch is just the right size. I also started with a Samsung P1000 and I'm using a mediapad x2 at this moment, witch after almost 3 years still is the world strongest 7 inch phablet. I'm longing for the X2 successor...

Sounds nice but would want a 9 or 10 inch version for real media viewing. Unfortunate that it's one of the smaller tablets.
