CES will be the site of numerous new Chinese device, and Huawei are already teasing details of what could possibly be the new Honor X3 tablet.

Back in November benchmarks were posted showing a mystery Huawei tablet running a 6.2-inch 2K display and powerful Huawei Kirin 950 chipset. The tablet was simply refereed to as the P950S but it was widely reported that the codename would eventually be ditched and the tablet would launch as the Huawei Honor X3.

The Honor X3 would be the replacement for the current Honor X2 and along with the higher resolution display and more powerful chipset, the new Huawei tablet will ship with 4GB RAM, 64GB internal memory and Android 6.0 (likely with Huawei’s own Emotion UI skin).

To help the new Huawei tablet stand out from the rest of the crowd the Honor X3 seems to be shipping with audio centric features with a social media teaser showing off an image of one of the built-in speakers with the headline “Rhythm X Entertainment”.

Although Huawei have only chosen to officially show off one edge of the tablet, an earlier set of images shows that tablet is designed for use in landscape (perfect for movies) will feature at least one additional speaker on the opposite corner and a physical home button.

Will these details all be accurate? Well we will soon find out as the official launch of the device is 5th January, watch this space.

        The x2 can be used as a phone as its a fully functioning mobile device so this should be no different for those of us that like larger devices. Will see what happens when is officially unveiled.

          we are close to a point where all these names are redundant.

            Exactly my point, just find the device you like and don’t worry what people call it.

              If you are having sex with devices, you and I need to have a long talk! Come on a trip to Bangkok with me, I will set you on the right path.

              I got some hands on time today with the Lumia 950. Amazing phone let down by a serious lack of apps. I suggested to Msoft today to give up on Windows Mobile and bring Lumia Phones to Android. They weren’t too happy with that response lol.

              no wonder LOL.

              they should contact who makes the most downloaded apps (android+iOS), pay them to port their apps for windows mobile and once their store starts getting crowded of apps then others developers will follow for free.

            They are all pretty much meaningless at this point and only hold value to the individual consumer. For me there are phones and there are tablets. A tablet is anything over 7.

          How large are you talking? There is no way this is really going to be 6.2 inches. It is like 10 inches if you look at the images and the proportions of the camera module or button to the body.

        It;s kind of a tweener, can be used as Phablet for those of us who think 5.5 is small for a phone, or as tablet for those who think 5 is huge for a phone.

            According to what? It’s a small picture with nothing to compare it to. There isn’t even a persons hand to judge it by. This is what the X2 looks like on it’s own.

              Actually you were correct it is a 10 inch tablet, it’s called the M2.

    Thinking about it, it would be nice to see a 10+ inch tablet with kirin 930 or 935 at a ridiculous price from the honor brand, that’s something missing in their offer!
