Quad-core Huawei MediaPad X1 could give Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HDX a run for their money

Huawei MediaPad X1 7.0 is a new and unannounced Android tablet that was first spotted at the beginning of January. At that time, we didn’t know much about it, not even its name. But now, thanks to German website MobileGeeks, we have quite a few details, including the MediaPad X1 moniker.

Similar to Google’s Nexus 7 2013 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HDX 7, it appears that the MediaPad X1 sports a 7-inch display with 1200 x 1920 pixels. This gives its screen a 323 ppi density, so it should be a pleasure to use it.

The MediaPad X1 is only 7.5mm thin, weighs 239 grams, and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The rest of its features reportedly include a Huawei-made 1.6GHz quad-core HiSilicon 910 processor, optional LTE or 3G connectivity, 2GB of RAM, 1.3MP front-facing camera, and a 5MP rear camera. All in all, this seems to be a pretty nice tablet. The small image embedded above is the only one that's available for now, but we can still see that the X1 looks good.

We don’t know when, and neither where the Huawei MediaPad X1 will be released. But if Huawei manages to sell it for around $200, then the tablet can certainly become an alternative to the Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire HDX (at least in Asia).
