Huawei MediaPad M5 is a new tablet of the Chinese, the premiere of which may take place in a few days. This device was known to us under the code name SHT-AL09 and SHT-W09. The correct name of the device appeared on the website of the Bluetooth SIG organization. There, the tablet also revealed some details related to the specification.
Huawei SHT-AL09 and SHT-W09 were seen even earlier, but until now it was believed that this would be a new tablet MediaPad M4. But it turns out that the four will not be, the new model was immediately five. The number four in some Asian countries is associated with bad luck, probably this is the reason why the Chinese decided to skip the figure and put the five immediately.

It will be a tablet with a higher price shelf for more demanding users. The device will receive a screen with a diagonal of 8.4 inches and a resolution of WQHD (2560 x 1600 pixels).
