Huawei announces the MediaPad 7 Youth
Huawei recently revealed a new 7-inch tablet- the MediaPad Youth. Although the Chinese company already produces three other 7-inch tablets (the MediaPad, the MediaPad Light, and the recently launched MediaPad Vogue) it seems the aim is to diversify the line and win over customers with a broader range of (relatively similar) product choices.
The MediaPad Youth features a 7-inch full HD capacitive 10-point touchscreen, an unspecified 28 nm dual-core 1.6 GHz processor, HSPA+ connectivity, Android 4.1, and a 4100 mAh battery. The tablet has an aluminum unibody that is 9.9 mm thick (0.39 inches) and weighs 350 grams (0.77 pounds).
The Youth will likely take the Vogue's place as Huawei's top tablet given that it features a faster processor, better data speeds, and superior touch capabilities, though it is both a little thicker and heavier. We'll also have to wait and see how the tablet's RAM, internal storage, and other features stack up once the full specs are released.
The MediaPad 7 Youth is expected to launch in Europe and select markets in Asia in Q3 of this year. Prices have not yet been announced
