Huawei has maintained a small lineup of Android tablets for a while now, but they have ranged from decent to only usable as a hammer. Today the company took the wraps off four new tablets, with both 8-inch and 10-inch models available. They don't really stand out at all, but they don't seem awful.

Let's start off with the MediaPad T3 (which is unrelated to Terminator 3, in case you were confused). The 10-inch model retails for US$159, and the 8-inch version costs US$139. As you might expect from tablets in this price range, the specs are nothing fantastic. Both variants have a Snapdragon 425 processor, 16GB of internal storage (no mention of microSD expansion), 2GB of RAM, and a 4,800mAh battery. They both have a screen resolution of 1280x800, which should look okay on the 8" model, but that resolution on a 10-inch screen isn't pretty.

Next is the MediaPad M3 Lite, which is priced higher than the T3 tablets. The 10-inch model costs US$249, and the 8" one costs US$199. They both have a slightly-better Snapdragon 430 CPU, 16GB of storage (again, no mention of microSD expansion), and 3GB of RAM. Both have a much higher resolution of 1920x1200. The 8-inch model has a 4,800mAh battery, and the 10-inch one has a 6,660mAh battery.

All of these tablets have Android 7.0 with Huawei's EMUI 5.1 skin. While the Snapdragon 425 and 430 chips don't make for great productivity machines, they should be able to handle Netflix binge-watching and light browsing just fine.

A new set of budget tablets from Huawei running on the Snapdragon 4xx chips. It appears that they'll be in direct competition with the Lenovo Tab 4 / Tab 4 Plus series. Local availability and price unknown for now (do share if you have information on this). But for those who can't wait, these tablets can currently be found on Amazon US and Aliexpress.

Edit: Local versions of the T3 8" are available from the usual online retailers, Qoo10 and Lazada. I've not seen local sets for the 10" and M3 Lite. Do correct me if I'm wrong.

Prices listed in the quoted article are in USD.

For comparison, the Huawei T3 8.0" LTE is currently listed on Lazada for SGD289.

anyone bought the t3 8-inch model?

looking at aliexpress, they sell a 3gb/32gb variant for s$266 [singapore only sell 2gb/16gb variant]

seller claims google play is installed

hoping to use it as a device for surfing internet while commuting in mrt/bus, plus reading free e-magazines from NLB...
