It’s been a while since we’ve used the term “Nexus 7 competitor”, but here we are, getting ready to talk about a possible contender to the title. Specifically, we’re referring to the Huawei Media Pad X1 – the tablet that has made it in the headlines several times during these past few weeks.
Needless to say, the Pad X1 broke the cover again; this time around in the form of a handful of photos depicting the device in all its glory. While the slate has been under the spotlight prior to this day, never before has the Pad X1 been so clearly showcased from all angles. Check out the images below and join us after the break for more details.
Huawei Media Pad X1 – The Latest Details
Aside from the images you see above, we’ve also stumbled (via the Chinese equivalent of the FCC) across a full spec list for the Pad X1. The device will feature a 7 inch TFT display with a resolution of 1200 x 1920, a quad-core 1.6 GHz CPU (probably the Huawei in-house developed Hisilicon V9R1 chipset) and 2 GB of RAM.
The device seems to run on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and packs a 13 MP main camera complemented by a 5 MP front-facing unit. It weighs 239 grams and its dimensions are 183.5×103.9×7.5mm.
The interesting thing is that the Pad X1 also seems to support GSM call features, and that’s mainly the reason why in the past, we’ve speculated that the device could be a “ginormous phablet”.
In any case, just yesterday Huawei posted a new teaser video on YouTube (which you’ll find below), letting everyone know that the company will be present at the Mobile World Congress, where several devices -including two tablets- will be present. Needless to say, we believe that the Media Pad X1 is one of the “culprits”, and we’ll get to see more of it in just a few days from now. Stick around and we’ll keep you up to speed. In the meantime, check out the teaser video below and let us know if the Media Pad X1 shapes up to be like a true Nexus 7 competitor in your eyes.
