Original article below:

The Huawei MediaPad M3 tablet is an android tablet with an 8.4-inch, 2,500 x 1,600 IPS display that offers a pixel density of 359 ppi. It runs on Android 6.0 (Marshmallow), with Huawei's EMUI 4.1 interface present.

In terms of specifications, it comes in two variants – one with 32GB, and another with 64GB of storage. Both variants come with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, as well as a microSD slot for an additional 128GB of storage. Powering the device is Huawei's octa-core Kirin 950 SoC.

There are two 8MP camera systems on this tablet, one at the front and the other at the rear. Autofocus is only available at the rear. Onboard is a 5,100mAh battery that gives about up to nine hours of stamina when viewing Full HD videos.

Perhaps the more interesting feature of the MediaPad M3 is its audio system. There's two 3D speakers tuned by Harman/Kardon, and for those who prefer plugging in earphones or headphones, there's an AK4736 Hi-Fi audio chipset for better audio. You'd be happy to know that it also comes bundled with a pair of AKG earphones.

Pricing for the MediaPad M3 has been set at RM1,999 for the 64GB variant, while it's RM1,699 for the 32GB model. Stocks are currently unavailable, but we've been told that additional units may arrive in time for Christmas.
