Huawei MediaPad X1 Hands On

Huawei announced a couple of tablets and a smartphone at the MWC 2014. Among the new series of devices, the MediaPad X1 is a 7inch tablet that comes with calling facilities. Apart from the calling feature on a 7inch device, it comes with a high resolution display and a quad-core processor from Huawei. It is made of Aluminum and looks gorgeous.


We managed to get our hands on the device and made a quick video which you can check out right below.


The specifications of the Huawei MediaPad X1 are

  • 7-inch (1920 x 1200 pixels) IPS display
  • 1.6 GHz quad-core HiSilicon Kirin910 processor with Mali 450 GPU
  • Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) with Emotion UI 2.0
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, BSI sensor
  • 5-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 7.18mm thick and weighs 239 grams
  • 2GB RAM, 16,GB Internal storage, microSD card slot
  • 4G LTE / 3G HSPA+, WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS
  • 5000 mAh battery


The specifications of the tablet put it right there with the latest Nexus 7 tablet. The specifications aren’t the MediaPad X1’s only strength. It comes with a solid build and looks like it is machined out of Aluminum(which it is). Handling the device feels quite comfortable and definitely puts it on par with Apple’s iPad Mini with Retina display.

The device also comes with LTE and is expected to go on sale in China, Russia, Western Europe, the Middle East, Japan and Latin America from March 2014. It is priced at 399Euros.
