Aquaris M8


Aquaris M8

Smaller, but just as great.

Vivid colours, durable materials.

An all terrain tablet needs a screen that measures up. Dragontrail protection, a layer of alkali-aluminosilicate, makes it resistant to even the smallest of scratches and scrapes. This way you can better enjoy the HD screen featuring 800x1280 pixels, more than 250 nits of brightness and a viewing angle of 85º.Combine all this with GFF (Glass-Film-Film) technology and an amazing sensation of reality is created. 

Small size, powerful sound.

Our aim was clear throughout the design process: spectacular sound. To get the best multimedia experience from this tablet with petite and contemplated dimensions, we have integrated a Smart PA chip which optimises speaker response based on the content being played. This allows for loud distortion-free volume while maintaining high fidelity. This sound quality is enhanced by the two 0.7W front speakers.

A battery that lasts, and lasts, and lasts.

Energy efficiency is our priority. To achieve this in the Aquaris M8 we have focused on selecting energy efficient components (like its MediaTek Quad Core MT8163B@1.3 GHz processor) and combining them with a state-of-the-art LiPo 4050 mAh battery. The result: a tablet you can use for hours on end.
