Huawei‘s sub-brand Honor, today, announced its Honor 20 series smartphones in India. Apart from this, the Chinese smartphone maker also launched two new tablets expanding its portfolio – the Honor Pad 5 8-inch and Honor Pad 5 10.1-inch.
Both two tablets target entertainment-focussed consumers with few safety features for children. Here is a quick look at the specifications and pricing of both the tablets.
Honor Pad 5 8-inch Variant: Specifications, Features
As mentioned earlier, Honor Pad 5 comes in two different screen size variants – 8-inch and 10.1-inch. The former one comes with an 8-inch Full HD resolution display. Although the brand hasn’t revealed the display type, it should definitely be IPS LCD. The tablet is powered by a Kirin 710 chipset equipped with GPU Turbo 2.0 for a better gaming experience.
In terms of storage, the 8-inch variant sports up to 4GB of RAM and up to 64GB of internal memory. For optics, there is an 8MP camera sensor on both the front and the back. All of this runs on the latest version of Android 9 Pie with MagicUI 2.0.1 skin on top. Like most of the tablets, there is a dedicated children space through which you can control the accessibility of the apps. For audio, Honor has added a dual stereo speaker configuration.
Honor Pad 5 10.1-inch Variant: Specifications, Features
As the name suggests, the 10.1-inch variant of the tablet comes with a massive 10.1-inch display with Full HD resolution. Again, the brand hasn’t really talked about the display type so we assume it is IPS LCD. Unlike the 8-inch variant, this one is powered by a less powerful Kirin 659 chipset coupled with up to 4GB RAM and up to 64GB storage.
Like with the chipset, the 10.1-inch variant comes with an 8MP camera sensor at the back and a single 2MP camera sensor at the front. Even though it is priced costlier, the tablet comes with inferior cameras and performance when compared with its cheaper 8-inch variant. Although the speakers on this one are tuned by Harman Kardon. As of now, there is no word on the battery capacity of this tablet.
Honor Pad 5: Price in India, Availability
Honor Pad 5 8-inch variant comes in two different storage variant – 3GB+32GB and 4GB+64GB capacity. Both of them are priced at INR 15,499 and INR 17,499 respectively.
Honor Pad 5 10.1-inch variant comes with the same storage capacity but with a different price tag. You can get the base variant for INR 16,999 while the top-end variant is going to set you back INR 18,999.
As per the company, both the tablets will be up for grabs starting from July 2019 on Flipkart. Although the exact date is still unknown.
