Hi I intend to get one of the M5 Pr's but I have one question before doing that.
I come from a NVidia Shield K1 and so I'm used to have the Tab connected via HDMI for watching vids in Hotels.
So is it possible to use an USB-C -> HDMI adapter with the M5 Pro?

Thanks in advance.

Can you please post the used Adapter for it, if it works. I tried at the office with an LG 21:9 Display and am not sure, whether the resolution was too much, whether the adapter did not work, or whether it is not supported

I found an article on notebookcheck.com. They tested the normal M5 Pad and found that HDMI is not possible.

What was your outcome with the Pro Model?

Didn't get it to run as of yet. But I've another connector and an App installed. Will check this evening again. Am out in the sun at the moment.

Edit 04/23: sorry for being late on here. Didn't have the time to check yesterday, but promise that I will have this evening for sure.

Tried yesterday with USB-2-HDMI Adapter. Notebook is working. Huawei M5 8.4 is not giving any signal.

There is this line in the Vendor build.prop file:

ro.hdmi.service=false

Might be worth experimenting with.

thanks for your answer, but this would not help since amazon is not working with chromecast in offline mode. But it is similar to the answer someone gave on Android-Hilfe.de

Reading in other Huawei sections, seems no others support mhl or slimport. So I don't think it's capable of video output.
