Huawei launched the Huawei MediaPad T3 10 (AGS-W09) together with the MediaPad T3 tablet in India back in October of 2017, and although the MediaPad T3 10 tablet has interesting specifications like a 9.6-inch HD display, 2GB RAM, 4800mAh battery and runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with EMUI 5.1 out of the box, it comes with bloatware that many users would prefer to uninstall from the device. Unfortunately, that's quite impossible as there has been no support for the tablet since it was released, not even on the XDA Developers Forum.
Well, that was prior to today, as an official thread has been opened for the Huawei MediaPad T3 10 (AGS-W09) on the XDA Developers Forum.
