Huawei isn’t exactly the manufacturer that comes to mind when we think of tablets; the Chinese manufacturer is synonymous with midrange and high-end smartphones and phablets — mostly limited to Asian and European markets. But it could now be making the switch to slates according to a new leak, which hints at the launch of a 7 inch tablet called the MediaPad X1.
The leak also reveals a rendering of the tablet along with the hardware specs sheet and it looks fairly impressive for the most part.
If the report is anything to go by, the Huawei MediaPad X1 will feature a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display, 2GB of RAM, a quad core 1.6 GHz HiSilicon Kirin 910 chipset, a 5MP camera on the rear, 3G HSPA connectivity and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with Huawei’s custom UI.
There’s no word on whether this tablet will remain a China only offering like many other Huawei devices, but we’re hopeful of an extensive global launch. With the MWC event barely weeks away, we should get more clarification on the launch as well as the pricing of this budget tablet.
