HUAWEI unveils MediaPad M5 lite tablets for families

At CES 2019, Huawei announced the addition of HUAWEI MediaPad M5 lite tablets designed for families.

The devices is priced $299 and will be available late January at U.S. retailers including Amazon and Newegg.

As children are frequent tablet users, Huawei created Kid’s Corner to provide a customized environment for children while enabling parents to set time limits and control access to content.

To protect the eyesight of young tablet users, the HUAWEI MediaPad M5 lite has a Distance sensor, Posture Detect sensor, Ambient Light sensor and Blue Ray Filter.

The Blue Ray Filter mitigates eye strain by blocking out blue light, and the Ambient Light sensor automatically adapts the color and brightness of the display according to the environment for the best setting to prevent eye strain.
