With a full HD display, surround sound, the M2 is a premium travel companion

London, UK – 17 May 2016 - The Huawei MediaPad M2 10.1” tablet, the latest addition to its Android tablet product family, is now on sale from Currys PC World.

Designed to be the perfect travel companion for those who want to view and create high-end content on the move, the MediaPad M2 combines stylish design with superb performance, intuitive interaction and long-lasting battery life.

High-End Performance

The MediaPad M2 10” runs the Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, with the Huawei Emotion UI 3.1 overlay. The premium edition is powered by Octacore processors (Quad-core 2.0GHz + Quad 1.5GHz), with 3GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. These components ensure a super-fast web browsing experience, multitasking capabilities and the ability to handle 3D gaming.

Premium Design

Featuring a crystal clear 10.1inch fullHD IPS display (1920 x 1200), the MediaPad M2 uses Clari-Vu technology to automatically adjust itself to provide optimal viewing conditions depending on the lighting. Together with colour enhancement and 178 degree viewing angle, it’s the perfect companion on the move. 

Available in Moonlight Silver, Huawei has used a sand-blasted finish on the all-metal body of the tablet, providing a smooth-touch surface. A fingerprint sensor also allows users to unlock the device in one motion and is capable of storing up to five fingerprints.

Bringing Your Ideas to Life

A Huawei M-Pen Stylus is included with the premium edition tablet. This offers 2048-levels of pressure sensitivity and high definition identification accuracy, enabling users to replicate a traditional handwriting experience by taking notes on the Bamboo Paper app, or unleash their creative juices using apps such as Sketchbook.

Text can be imported with a touch of a button and software also converts on-screen notes into digital form.

The Power of Sound

Four speakers certified by Harmon Kardon are perfectly positioned to provide 180degrees worth of rich virtual surround sound. 

Renowned as the benchmark for sound quality, Harman Kardon makes sound look beautiful through cutting edge design. From the company’s very beginnings, design has been a crucial factor shaping product development and has been led by the need for function, as well as emotion. 

The Harman Kardon design housed within the MediaPad M2, highlights how the sound system feels, but also how it works, allowing users to truly immerse themselves in multimedia content.

Multimedia Capture and Creation

The MediaPad M2 includes a 13MP rear camera with a F2.0 large-diaphragm lens, intelligent image processing engine, blue glass filter, flash and autofocus. Photography enthusiasts will be pleased to see the camera includes Panorama, HDR and time-lapse modes.

Meanwhile, the 5MP front camera makes the MediaPad M2 ideal for video calling, thanks to the 88 degree ultra-wide angle lens. 

All-Day Battery Life

With a huge 6660mAh battery pack powering the device, the MediaPad M2 provides up to 6 hours of 3D gaming, 9.5 hours of web browsing, 10 hours of Wi-Fi video playback and 30 hours of music playback on a single charge.
