The advanced MediaPad M5 10 Pro has a codenamed of Cameron Pro. It comes with a higher storage capacity of 64 GB. Like other M5 tablets, this one also features 4 GB of RAM. This tablet will carry support for M-Pen stylus. It is likely to arrive only in LTE edition with a pricing of 520 euros (~$644).
According to previous leaks, the MediaPad M5 8 may feature 8.4-inch display that will support 2560 x 1600 pixels resolution. The Kirin 960 chipset is expected to power the device. It may come preinstalled with EMUI 8.0 based Android 8.0 Oreo. It is likely to be equipped with Cat. 4 LTE modem and USB-C port. It might not feature a 3.5mm audio jack. The SHT-W09 model received approval from the Federal Communications Commission in the previous month. The FCC listing of the tablet revealed that it is packed with a 4,980mAh battery.
The MediaPad M5 tablets will be arriving to replace the MediaPad M3 tablets from last year. The Chinese manufacturer seems to have skipped “MediaPad M4” moniker since the number 4 is considered bad omen in China.
