Huawei are continuing their assault on the 7-inch Android tablet market, today following up on the previously released MediaPad 7, MediaPad 7 Vogue and MediaPad 7 Lite with the all-new MediaPad 7 Youth.
Aimed at the youth market (or “connected generation”, as Huawei like to call them), it features a 7-inch display, a 1.6GHz dual-core processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and a 4100mAh battery.
Both Wi-Fi-only and 3G + Wi-Fi versions will be available, with the tablet also retaining phone functionality, much like the Asus FonePad.
Weighing 350g, its brushed aluminium construction could elevate it above other cut-price Android tablets.
“The MediaPad 7 Youth is a versatile tablet that provides an unsurpassed experience across hardware and software,”said Wang Yinfeng, Vice President, Home Connected Device Product Line, Huawei Device.
“Ideal for young people who are always on the move, the MediaPad 7 Youth delivers on Huawei’s promise to make extraordinary technology experiences accessible for all.”
Launching in Q3 in Russia, China, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Europe, we’ll pass on UK-specific pricing and availability information as we get it.
