Huawei Annouces the MediaPad X1
Huawei MediaPad X1 tablet will be a bit more affordable if you live in China! While sub 10 inch tablets are becoming more and more popular, we in turn see more options in those size ranges. Companies like Samsung and even Apple have produced midsized tablets and it seems as if consumers are taking a likening to the size and its ease of use when compared to the ten in slates that solidified the market. Huawei not to be left out has also produced a new 7 inch tablet. The company took the wraps off of the MediaPad X1 just one day before MWC began and a bit more clarity on its price has been brought to light.
The Huawei MediaPad X1 is to most a good old fashioned 7 inch tablet. The device starts with a 7 inch 1200×1920 IPS LCD touch screen that offers up 323 pixels per inch. Internally the tablet uses a Hisilicon Kirin 910 system chip that runs a quad-core 1.6 Ghz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, Mali-450 GPU with 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and expandable micro SD memory options up to 32 GB. Around back of the MediaPad’s 7.18mm build we find a highly capable 13 mega pixel camera with LED flash and full 1080p video recording. Up front the new tablet uses a 5 mega pixel sensor for all your selfies and video calling. The tablet gets its go from a 5000 mAh battery and gives its users control via Android version 4.2.2. Additionally the MediaPad X1 sports a phone application, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, Micro USB 2.0 and DLNA connectivity. The price of the MediaPad X1 however has been called into question. Apparently the X1 will brand as the Honor X1 when released in China and will cost about $293 bucks while the 4G variation $326 bucks! Good deal right? Unfortunately however the European market will be offered the same X1 at about $548 buck in its 4G build. Engadget was a bit curious to this pricing plan and questioned the company. A long story short, the cost of distribution in China is lower and its direct competition is much different. When pinning the X1 up against the likes of the iPad Mini in European markets it is still very affordable and is expected to hold its own.
