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?

      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.

      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.
