Huawei is beefing up their tablet line-up in the Philippines by bringing the Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite 8.0 locally.
This latest one is a smaller, but ironically more powerful, than the 10-inch MediaPad M5 Lite from a few months ago. The Huawei MediaPad M5 Lite 8.0 features a more compact 8-inch FHD+ screen and a more powerful Kirin 710 processor (versus the Kirin 659 on the 10-inch).
Due to its smaller body, the 7,500mAh battery was shrunk to a 5,100mAh one. It also has a dual speaker setup, which is a compromise over the quad speaker setup that the former has.
Huawei also rigged it with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, while on the back we have a 13-megapixel primary shooter.
