If it is said that it is a tablet for intensively consuming multimedia content, it is also due to its six speakers that offer a surround sound experience.

The rear camera is 5 Mpx with AI functions, although it does not offer exceptional results, but it does more than meet the requirements for quick photos. The same thing happens with its 5 Mpx front camera which, for video calls or recording videos, is not bad, but as said, the photography of this tablet, as is usually the case with the vast majority, does not usually stand out.
