Huawei is one of the only companies that continues to crank out premium Android tablets with price tags north of $300. But the company’s latest model is more of a mid-range device. It also doesn’t actually have the Huawei name on it.
The Honor Tab 5 is an Android tablet with an 8 inch display, a Kirin 710 processor, and a starting price of about ¥1099 (about $165) in Huawei’s home country of China.
It’s part of the company’s Honor sub-brand, which Huawei typically uses to sell value-oriented smartphones.
The tablet features a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, Huawei’s own octa-core processor (with four Cortex-A73 CPU cores, four lower-power Cortex-A53 cores, and Mali G51 MP4 graphics), a 5,100 mAh battery, stereo speakers, and 8MP front and rear cameras.
It also has a headphone jack and microSD card reader with support for up to 512GB of removable storage.
Honor is offering four different prices/configurations in China:
- 3GB/32GB/WiFi for ¥1099 (~$165)
- 4GB/64GB/WiFi for ¥1299 (~$195)
- 3GB/32GB/WiFi + 4G LTE for ¥1399 (~$210)
- 4GB/64GB/WiFi + 4G LTE for ¥1499 (~$225)
There’s no word on if or when this tablet will be available in the US or other markets.
