Huawei MediaPad X1 pictured next to a Samsung Galaxy Note 3

The quad-core Huawei MediaPad X1 tablet (which could be seen as a competitor to the Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire HDX) has appeared for the first time in a real photo, sitting next to Samsung’s 5.7-inch Galaxy Note 3. Since the MediaPad X1 sports a 7-inch display, it’s obviously significantly larger than the Note. Still, its narrow bezels allow it to remain compact.

As we already reported, the X1’s 7-inch screen has 1200 x 1920 pixels, offering a 323 ppi density. Other features should include LTE (optional), Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a 1.6GHz quad-core HiSilicon 910 processor, 5MP rear camera, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 2GB of RAM. The tablet weighs 239 grams and is only 7.5mm thin.

It’s said that Huawei might launch the MediaPad X1 around the world soon, offering it in two color versions: white and black. However, nothing is confirmed at this point.

agree, Snapdragon 805 or even 800 or a Tegra 4 would make me want to buy.

Clicking the Weibo source link and translating it kind of scared me. They even provided a number to a hotline... Um, dafu.q is going on here?
