It has been long rumoured (and leaked) that Huawei would launch the Mediapad X1 tablet at MWC, well Chinese E-commerce site seems to have ignored the memos and launced the tablet ahead of schedule.

The launch of the Huawei Mediapad X1 is hardly a surprise, and neither are many of the specification details, but at least we finally know the official hardware of this new 7-inch device Huawei have been planning for such a long time. The official launch details, found on Tmall the sister site of Taobao, state the Huawei Mediapad X1 has a 7-inch 1920 x 1080 display, weight 239g and measures just 7.18mm thick. Huawei are boasting a 2.99mm bezel on the X1 and an industry leading body to screen ratio which sees 80% of the front of the Mediapad X1 taken up by the display.

Under the hood, the Huawei Mediapad X1 runs a 1.6Ghz quad-core Hisilcon processor, with 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory, extendable via 32GB micro SD card. A 5000mAh battery is a nice plus on the device and is acutally a full 1000mAh larger than the battery in the similar 7-inch CoolPad Halo.

Even the cameras look good with a 5 mega-pixel wide angle 22mm camera taking care of selfie duty and a 13 mega-pixel Sony sensor on the rear with F2.2 aperture. Tmall are selling the Huawei Mediapad X1 in China for a great price! Just 1200 Yuan which is around $196! Quite a steal for this type of device.

    Huawei Mediapad X1 or iFive Mini 3 Retina (or something else), which do you prefer Andy?

    • Andi

      Meidapad M1 looks very good, I think I might consider one myself. iFive looks good too, but not sure how iFive do with updates to the OS.

    • Emin Tolga Ozdemir

      Mediapad X1 price tag is 399 Euro, and it is very expensive. I think i prefer Mini3 Retina instead of Huawei :)

    phones are getting scary-good… but if I want a large tablet-sized phone (say > 14cm), I’m thinking I want to hold out for full HD audio with multiple microphones because I don’t want to hold the thing to my head to talk.
