The Japanese tablet market is ready to be graced with the presence of a new device, the Huawei MediaPad T3 7, that will be sold at a very affordable rate. The price going around these days is $106 and we are dealing with a 7 incher here, with the specs detailed below.
The debut of the machine is slated for July 7th and only the WiFi model will make the cut. The MediaPad T3 7 is part of the affordable T series from Huawei, that has been selling well all over the world. It’s got an aluminum shell and a weight of just 250 grams. The product measures 8.6 mm in thickness and has a pretty simple design. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow and relies on a MediaTek MT8127 quad core CPU clocked at 1.3 GHz.
There’s also 2 GB of RAM here, 16 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. By the way, the screen is a 7 incher with an iPad Mini 1 level resolution, of 1024 x 600 pixels (IPS LCD). Other features include a 2 MP front and back camera, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.1. Expect a 3G and maybe 4G LTE version to come later on, perhaps being adopted by local carriers.
The device seems promoted for media consumption, meaning music and movies, so I expect the speakers to be solid.
