Huawei’s MediaPad 10 FHD will launch in late August and it’s expected to cost $471 or 385 euros, if you want the exchange rate. The device is a quad core tablet that was showcased quite a while ago, at MWC 2012 if I’m not mistaking. The info comes straight from China, so it’s as real as it gets.
The news about the product’s arrival was posted on the Sina Weibo service, a Chinese equivalent of Twitter by a Huawei official. MediaPad 10 FHD was unveiled in February at Mobile World Congress and it will debut in China next month. This is a pretty high specced tablet, with Android 4.0 ICS on board, a quad core 1.5 GHz Huawei processor, a 10.1 inch 1920 x 1200 pixel display (Full HD IPS), HSPA+ support and an 8 megapixel rear camera. There’s also a 1.3 megapixel front camera and a 6,400 mAh battery.
To that we add a 8.8mm thick chassis and the tablet is estimated to provide 8-9 hours of continuous HD video playback and 6-7 hours of full HD playback. I can’t wait to find out what the benchmarks reveal about the quad core Huawei CPU inside the device, especially since we’ve seen so many quad core tablets out there and have all the reason to compare them to this model.
