I think Huawei Honor WaterPlay Tab can be first tablet with IP67 rating. It means that you can safely walk with it under the rain or even in the shower and listen to music or watch TV shows.

So, Huawei Honor WaterPlay Tab is available in different modifications. We have a basic version with 32GB of internal memory and 3GB of RAM, and more powerful version with 64GB of internal memory and 4GB of RAM. The difference between two versions is not big, but if you need a more powerful tablet, then you should buy top version and everything will work fine.

Huawei Honor WaterPlay Tab: Design

The design of tablet is so simple and sometimes even boring, that it is even problematic to describe. The frame around the display is symmetrical white. The camera is in the center of top frame; under the display is Home button.

On the side faces of the tablet are speakers; it looks attractive, but we’ve already seen this. The rear panel is completely flat and faceless. Here we have only a camera, that does not protrude beyond the body. Also there is company logo.

Huawei Honor WaterPlay Tab has IP67 rating, but not IP68, as many had hoped.
