Huawei added two new tablets to its MediaPad lineup – the MediaPad T3 8-inch and MediaPad M3 Lite 10-inch – in the months of April and June respectively. However, the Chinese company did not disclose the prices and availability at the time of launch. The tablets are now available to purchase on Amazon.com along with two more variants – the MediaPad T3 10-inch and MediaPad M3 Lite 8-inch. The MediaPad T3 8-inch costs $139 (roughly Rs. 8,890), the 10-inch version costs $159 (roughly Rs. 10,200), while the MediaPad M3 Lite 10-inch variant retails at $249 (roughly Rs. 16,000) and the 8-inch display variant is available at $199 (roughly Rs. 12,800).
Both the display variants of Huawei MediaPad T3 tablets share the same specifications such as a 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 SoC with two RAM/ storage options of 2GB/ 16GB and 3GB/ 32GB, and a 4800mAh battery. Both the variants have a screen resolution of 1280×800 pixels, which should look fine on the 8-inch variant but on the 10-inch display, pixels would disperse a tad bit. Both the tablets come with a metallic finish along with an embedded fingerprint scanner. They run on Huawei’s own Android 7.0-based EMUI 5.1 skin. The tablets sport a 5-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing camera.
Coming to the MediaPad M3 Lite, both the variants come with a better 1.6GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 SoC, three RAM/ storage options – 3GB RAM and 16GB storage, 3GB RAM and 32GB storage, and 4GB RAM and 64GB storage, as well as Android 7.0 Nougat-based EMUI 5.1. The batteries, however, differ in each variant – MediaPad M3 Lite 8-inch has a 4800mAh battery while the MediaPad M3 Lite 10-inch packs in a 6600mAh battery. Both the variants have a display resolution of 1920×1200 pixels. For the optics, both the variants have 8-megapixel shooters on both the sides, but the rear one comes with autofocus capability while the front is a fixed-focus camera.
