There’s a new Huawei tablet in town, a device pertaining to the Honor series. It’s called Honor WaterPlay and it’s priced at $300. I’d see it in the hands of someone who wants to binge watch a TV show even if it’s time for a long hot bath.
This is obviously an Android tablet, with IP67 rating and it can survive dunks of up to one meter in depth and only for half an hour. The slate offers a 10.1 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel display and relies on the same Kirin 659 processor which we recently saw on the Honor 7X handset. There’s also 3 or 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage, but the version with extras takes you higher than $300 of course.
The device also uses a microSD card slot, a fingerprint scanner and a 3.5 mm audio jack, plus it has a 6660 mAh battery with 18W fast charging. There’s Android 7.0 Nougat on top with EMUI 5.1 available. An 8 megapixel camera is also spotted here, plus a front cam for good measure. On the connectivity front, LTE is available in optional manner, plus WiFi ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS.
The USB is of the Type-C variety. The whole thing measures 7.8 mm in thickness and weighs 465 grams. Available in silver and champagne gold, the device will go on sale in China come October 24th. The version with extra RAM goes for $364 and if you also want LTE it’s going to cost you $409.
