Chinese manufacturer Huawei has announced the MediaPad M2 10 at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas today. With its 10-inch display the M2 is larger than most previous MediaPad models and puts a focus on camera and audio capabilities. 13MP in the rear camera is an unusually high pixel-count for tablets and a 5MP module at the front should allow for decent selfie-quality as well.

For high quality sound output Huawei has partnered with Harman/Kardon whose Clari-Fi technology provides high-resolution audio. There is also the optional  Huawei's Active Stylus, which offers 2048-level pressure sensitivity, and a fingerprint reader at the front for biometric security.

At 1080p the resolution of the 10-inch display is, compared to Apple's current iPads and high-end Samsung Galaxy models, pretty low. Under the hood Android 5.1 Lollipop and the EMUI 3.1 launcher are powered by Huawei's own Kirin 930 octa-core CPU, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. There is also a premium version of the M2 that comes with 3GB of RAM, 64 GB of storage and the bundled Active Stylus. Huawei says the MediaPad M2 10 will be available in the US during the first quarter of 2016 with prices starting at $349 for the standard non-LTE model and topping out at $469 for the MediaPad M2 10 Premium with LTE support.
