The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite barely launched yesterday and already there’s a rival in town to challenge it. The newcomer arrives from Huawei and it’s dubbed MediaPad 7 Youth2. You can see it below, sticking to the usual MediaPad design.


The MediaPad 7 Youth launched last year and the newcomer brings a metallic frame, a 7 inch display with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean as the OS. The platform has Huawei’s Emotion UI 1.6 on top and it also comes with HSPA+ connectivity, with a download speed of 21 Mbps and other specs include WiFi, AGPS, a 3 megapixel rear camera and a VGA front cam.

There’s also 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, a microSD card slot and a 4100 mAh Li-Po battery. Huawei also implemented a power saving technology and the Dynamic Power Management system for extra juice. As far as the CPU is concerned, this one is a quad core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 200. There’s no price for the MediaPad 7 Youth2 yet, but we’re guessing it should be around the value of the Tab 3 Lite, about $130.
