The new Honor Tb 5 features an 8-inch Full-HD IPS LCD display. Looking at the prices offered, this is one of the best tablet display one can offer. Other tabs currently available in the market offer an HD display at this price bar. Furthermore, the great display is carried to the next level by stereo speakers at the front end- one at the top and one at the bottom. This is an aid to all those multimedia lovers who get tired of headphones every now and then. To handle the imaging departments, you get an 8MP back as well as an 8MP front shooter and those who never expect something from a tablet camera, the rear shooter comes with autofocus and both support Full HD video recording.

These also get support from a Mali G51 GPU on the top. Being a next-generation chipset, this is capable of providing a stutter-free performance on the Honor Tab 5 with Full HD display.
