Press renders of Huawei's Ascend G6 appear, plus live photos of the MediaPad X1

Only one day after we spotted the Huawei Ascend P7, here we have a press render of another unannounced Huawei smartphone: the Ascend G6 - seen above. While the Ascend P7 is bound to become Huawei’s new flagship Android handset, the Ascend G6 is a more modest offering, albeit still looking pretty nice.

Feature-wise, the Ascend G6 reportedly offers Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, a display of around 4.5-inches (unknown resolution), quad-core MediaTek MT6582 processor clocked at 1.3GHz, 1GB of RAM, MicroSD card support, 5MP front-facing camera, and an 8MP rear camera. The smartphone seemingly measure 130 x 65 x 7.5mm, thus being quite thin. Huawei could unveil the Ascend G6 at Mobile World Congress 2014 next week, alongside the Ascend P7.

The Chinese company might also announce the rumored MediaPad X1 at MWC. As we told you before, the X1 is a high-end tablet with a 7-inch, 1200 x 1920 pixels display, LTE (optional), 5MP rear camera, a quad-core 1.6GHz HiSilicon 910 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB / 32GB of internal memory, MicroSD card support, and a 6,000 mAh battery. The Huawei MediaPad X1 should be as thin as the G6 smartphone (7.5mm) and, interestingly, it's said that it could cost less than $200. New live photos of the tablet appeared in China recently, so we embedded them below for your viewing pleasure. As you'll see, the X1 has phone capabilities, and comes with a smart case that somewhat resembles LG's QuickView cases.

Earlier this week, Huawei said that it was ready to “amaze” the world at MWC with a new smartphone and a new tablet. Will these be the Ascend P7 and the MediaPad X1? We’ll find out soon.
