Huawei has officially announced the MediaPad X2 smartphone (or tablet, you should say, for it’s 7-inch screen) at MWC 2015 event. To be clear, it is a cellular tablet that is nothing new if we remember the Samsung Galaxy Tab series. The specs here, for the Mediapad X2 are much better, though.
The Mediapad X2 looks like the bigger version of Ascend Mate 7, though it actually is the successor to the Mediapad X1. It seems Huawei has taken the design from Ascend Mate 7, where we see slim bezels and 80% body area taken by the screen.
The Huawei Mediapad X2 comes with the 2.0GHz Kirin 930 ultra-octa core chipset, and with that, there is support for LTE Cat. 6. There is 64-bit GPU Mali-T628 and i3 micro-core along with integrated audio cavity, the Smart PA chip and a DTS surround sound technology. The 7-inch screen has a 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution, and the device runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with Huawei’s custom Emotion UI (EMUI). We usually don’t see great cameras in the tablet devices, but here, Huawei has given a 13-megapixel rear and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The display has 178-degree viewing, and LTPS HD touch display helps in crisp content output, while CABC technology given in the Mediapad X2 will be adjusting the brightness of the screen to ensure the battery runs for long.
Based on the RAM and storage, there are going to be two versions: one with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage, other with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage. The 16GB one will be available only in Titanium silver, while the 32GB one will come in rose gold option. The battery given in the device is 5000 mAh.
Talking of connectivity, the Mediapad X2 is a dual-sim, dual stand-by and dual 4G tablet with 2.4G dual-Wi-Fi and other standard options. It has Dual Mic setup for noise cancellation.
There is no information about the price and availability of the Huawei Mediapad X2, and we’ll update it here as soon as we find out.
