The gadgets of CES 2016 are here, and Huawei’s getting us started with a flurry of product news. We just checked in with some color options for its wearable and smartphone offerings, and now we’re  moving right ahead into new-device launches, as we’re introduced to a tablet that sure tries to do a lot of things well, what Huawei calls an “all-around good tablet,” the MediaPad M2 10.

As its name suggests, this is a ten-inch device intended for media consumption, with a full HD 1920×1200 display and a 16:10 aspect ratio optimized for movie watching. While we’d like to have seen a higher pixel density than 226ppi, the MediaPad M2 10 is really designed to impress on the acoustic front, with a four-driver speaker array built into the aluminum casing.

The two top speakers handle the treble, while the bottom-firing units lend some bass to the equation with the help of resonance chambers. As on Apple’s iPad Pro, all four speakers are side-firing. Huawei had some help from Harmon Kardon in the acoustic design here, with Clari-Fi audio restoration onboard to upsample low-quality MP3s and 2.0 surround sound.

Further down in the device sit some more predictable components: 16GB of storage, 2GB of RAM with microSD support up to 128GB and a 13MP/5MP dual-camera arrangement. There’s also a fingerprint scanner here, as well as what Huawei calls a “giant battery.”

The base version of the MediaPad M2 10 comes in silver, with a higher-end gold edition bringing 64GB of storage, 3GB of RAM and an included pressure-sensitive stylus (sold separately for the silver version). The US will get the WiFi-only model, while an LTE variant will go on sale globally, both hitting shelves in Q1. Price is TBD, as is the probability of an Android Marshmallow update.
