Meet the Huawei MediaPad M3 Android tablet

IFA 2016: Huawei has unveiled the MediaPad M3, its latest flagship tablet that combines a metal body, Android and audio from Harman Kardon.

The Huawei MediaPad M3 is powered by a Kirin 950 octa-core processor and 4GB of RAM. Storage comes in two flavours, 32 or 64GB, and both can be expanded with up to a 128GB microSD card. Android 6.0 Marshmallow and Huawei’s Emotion 4.1 run the show.

Where the MediaPad M3 should really shine is the display, which offers a resolution of 2,560×1,600 pixels so that means 2K goodness in an IPS package. Pixel density per inch, meanwhile, works out at 359. Huawei’s ClariVu-Eye care technology filters out blue light, which can be bad for your eyes.

Harmon Kardon’s inclusion in the MediaPad M3 has resulted in stereo speakers that should make good for watching Netflix without headphones. AKG H300 headphones, specifically designed for the tablet, are also included.

“HARMAN’s legendary brands like Harman Kardon and AKG have been introducing important innovations in audio for decades, and we continue to develop new ways to enrich the audio/visual experience for our customers,” said Harman Kardon chairman and president Dinesh Paliwal.

“We have a long history of working with top brands like Huawei to bring outstanding  advances to the market. We are proud to count Huawei among a select group of global partners and align with their long standing pursuit of innovation and commitment to user experience,” he added.

The Huawei MediaPad M3 will be available from the 26th of September, 2016, and will launch in a number of global markets including the UK, China, Japan, Germany and New Zealand.

Prices start from €349 for the 4GB + 32GB WiFi model, rising to €399 for the 4GB + 32GB with LTE connectivity. The 64GB WiFi and LTE models cost €399 and €449, respectively. Have a read of our MediaPad M3 hands-on here or watch the video below.
