huawei mediapad x1-1[MWC 2014] It was only the other day that we caught a glimpse of the Huawei MediaPad X1 in leaked photos. At that time we weren’t sure what to make of the device given its size. Was it a tablet? Was it a phone? Could it even be considered a phablet? Well we guess you will have to decide for yourself, but whatever the case, the tablet/phone/phablet is now official.

20140223_064948Sporting a metal body (a nice touch by Huawei to cater to customers wanting a more “premium” feel), the MediaPad X1 will sport a whopping 7-inch display with a Full HD display. As far as tablets are concerned, 7-inches is considered to be on the small side of things, but as a phone, it does border a little bit on ridiculous, but to each their own, right?

20140223_065208Despite the big display, Huawei has also managed to keep things thin with a 7.18mm thickness, so even if the phone is too big, at least it isn’t too thick and we can appreciate that. The MediaPad X1 will also be powered by a quad-core processor that has been clocked at 1.6GHz. Other specs of the MediaPad X1 includes a 13MP rear-facing camera with an LED flash, a 5MP front-facing camera, a microSD card slot for memory expansion for those times when you might require that additional storage, and a somewhat sizeable 5,000mAh battery which Huawei believes should last users for a few days.

20140223_065246Oddly enough Huawei has chosen to install Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on the MediaPad X1, although we’re hoping that Huawei will update it ASAP. Pricing has been set at €399 although availability has yet to be determined but we’ll definitely keep an eye out for that.
