The 7-inch tablet will carry the mid-range Snapdragon 615 SoC and a 1920 x 1200 resolution display with SIM capabilities for less than 250 Euros.

Alongside the G9 Lite announcement earlier last week, Huawei has unveiled a new tablet in the Mediapad series. Unlike the Mediapad M.2 8.0 announced last year at IFA 2015, the latest Mediapad M.2 7.0 is a mainstream 7-inch tablet with a 16:10 1920 x 1200 resolution LTPS display. The screen promises a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and excellent viewing angles. The manufacturer is also promoting "ClariVu 2.0" technology for deeper and more intense colors.

Core specifications include:

  • 7-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution display
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 SoC
  • 3 GB RAM
  • 16 or 32 GB eMMC
  • 13 MP F/2.0 w/ LED Flash Rear + 5 MP front cameras
  • 4360 mAh battery
  • Dual SIM (second SIM slot shared with MicroSD slot)
  • Micro-USB port
  • Android 5.1.1 w/ EMUI 3.1
  • 802.11n (2.4 GHz) only
  • LTE bands 1, 3, 7, 38-41
  • 187.4 x 105 x 8.2 mm

It's worth noting that the supported LTE bands are quite narrow and may not be compatible with LTE networks in Europe. It is currently unknown if Huawei will launch a separate variant for European users. Additionally, the smartphone will integrate a fingerprint reader on the edge of the device similar to the Sony Xperia Z5.

The 16 GB and 32 GB versions will sell in China for the equivalent of 210 Euros and 240 Euros, respectively, in "Crystal Powder", Gold, Pearl White, and "Quiet Blue" color options.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
