Huawei to launch MediaPad X1 7.0 LTE tablet
Huawei isn’t exactly the first company to come in to mind when it comes to Android tablets, and their recent efforts didn’t help either in establishing a firm foothold in the tablet scene. But we think that’s about to change with the upcoming MediaPad X1 7.0 which is touted to go toe-to-toe with the Nexus 7 2013.
The said tablet has yet to make its official debut, but TEENA (China equivalent of FCC in the US) already shared a pretty extensive list of the tablet’s feature set which includes a 7-inch display with WUXGA (1920×1200) screen resolution.
Handling the workload for the MediaPad X1 7.0 is the combo of Huawei’s new homebrewed quad-core SoC called HiSilicon 910 with 2GB of RAM and Mali 450 GPU.
Other notable features of this Android-powered slate includes LTE connectivity (3G variant will also be available), and thin (7.5mm) and lightweight (239 grams) body that’s somewhat reminiscent of the MediaPad 7 Vogue in terms of design.
Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0 specs:
7-inch WUXGA display, 1920×1200 @323ppi
1.6GHz HiSilicon 910 quad-core processor
Mali 450 GPU
