The China-based Android manufacturer also announced a mid-tier smartphone in part of a larger plan to woo the U.S. market.

A premium Android tablet

There haven’t been too many major Android tablet announcements in the past year, but Huawei’s hoping to spark some change with its premium tablet, the all-metal MediaPad N210.

The N210 is a full size, high-end tablet with four speakers.

The tablet runs on a 2GHz octa-core Kirin processor with a 6660mAh battery pack. It features a 10-inch, 1080p display with 16:10 aspect ratio, and 2.0 Surround Sound, provided by Harmon Kardon. The N210 also offers four speakers, two on top and two towards the bottom, in an effort to outshine its competitors as entertainment-focused devices.

Huawei’s Wi-Fi only tablet will also be one of its first U.S.-centric devices to prominently feature its proprietary Kirin processor, which will go head-to-head with Samsung’s octa-core 1.9GHz Exynos 5433 processor in its Galaxy Tab S2 devices, and Nvidia’s Tegra X1 in Google’s productivity-focused Pixel C.

The MediaPad N210 will be available later this quarter in two varieties: a silver version with 16GB version and 2GB of RAM, and a gold version with 64GB of storage space and 3GB of RAM. The gold version will also come bundled with a pressure sensitive stylus, and both devices features expansion slots.
