Like the MediaPad 7 Youth launched last year, the new model has a metallic frame, and a 7-inch display with 600 x 1024 pixels. It runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean with Huawei’s Emotion UI 1.6, further featuring HSPA+ (21 Mbps), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, A-GPS, a 3MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 4,100 mAh Li-Po battery helped by “Huawei’s patented power-saving tech and the Dynamic Power Management system.”
Huawei says the processor inside the MediaPad Youth2 is a quad-core 1.2GHz MSM8x12 A7 - which likely means it’s a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 (either the 8212, or the 8612 model).
With these features, the Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 will give Samsung’s latest Galaxy Tab3 Lite a run for its money. We could even say that the Youth2 looks a bit better on paper, specs-wise. The Galaxy Tab3 Lite should cost around $130, and we’re guessing that Huawei won’t ask more for its new tablet. The Chinese company hasn’t announced when and where it intends to launch the MediaPad 7 Youth2, but we’ll likely hear more on this soon.
