There’s a new Huawei Honor tablet in town and we know that because it has just been certified by TENAA. This is by no means the first Honor slate launch this year, since we saw the Play Pad 2 tablet getting two versions earlier in the year, together with the Honor 6A smartphone.
Back then the device s came with 8 inch and 9.6 inch screen sizes and now they’re completed by a 7 incher. The newcomer appeared on TENAA’s site this week and it goes by the model number BG2-U01. The specs are rather basic, from what we know and the device comes in gold and gray. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with a custom EMUI on top. The 7 incher provides a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and relies on a mystery quad core CPU, clocked at 1.3 GHz.
It’s either a MediaTek, or a HiSilicon Kirin I bet. Then there’s 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 2 MP front and back shooter sans LED. These are all entry level specs, but they don’t stop the tablet from also offering a SIM card slot. Finally, there’s a 4000 mAh battery inside and everything fits in a body that’s 8.6 mm thick and 275 grams heavy.
A microUSB 2.0 port is at the bottom. There’s little chance we’ll see a 4G version of the device, but the Honor Play Pad 2 did have such a version, so it may happen.
