The Chinese manufacturer Huawei has a tablet on the way, and boy is this thing a behemoth. The company has recently announced that it has plans to ship the MediaPad 10 FHD to “select markets” starting in the month of September. The tablet will be coming with a whole host of delicious hardware inside to prove that it is indeed a behemoth and arguably going to be one of the best tablets on the market. Here’s some of the specs it will feature:
- A 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 high definition IPS display screen and 16:10 golden ratio
- 8 megapixel HD rear camera + 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera
- Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
- Full 3G & 4G LTE radios built-in
While the mentioned features above aren’t exactly what you would consider “out of this world,” the tablet’s kicker is that it will be featuring a quad core processor along with a 16 core GPU. The K3V2 Cortex A9 is going to be clocked at a whopping 1.4GHz which if I remember correctly, is .2GHz more than the Transformer Pad’s Tegra 3 quad core processor. As you would expect from a tablet today, when you put it with the tablet’s 6,600mAh battery, the combination is going to give users a bit over 10 hours of continuous battery life. One of the best parts is that all of this superior hardware isn’t going to be adding any sort of heftiness to the tablet. The device is going to be measuring in at 8.8mm thin and will weight in at 580g. What’s unfortunate is that the device won’t be making an appearance in the American market (at least for now) and will be launching in Germany, Sweden, Russia, Belarus, Korea, Bahrain and Kuwait. The good news is that Huawei has said that other markets will follow, so the hope is that the Chinese company will be announcing a variation for the States. It could turn out to be another Galaxy Note 10.1 where we have to wait a couple of extra months for the tablet.
Here’s some of the details on the device that Huawei has released:
“Most consumers use tablets for entertainment purposes such as gaming, viewing multimedia content, browsing the internet and reading e-books,” said Richard Yu, Chairman of Huawei Device. “We have created the MediaPad 10 FHD to be extraordinary – to excel in all of the entertainment capabilities including speed, power, web-browsing, high definition display and audio, and packaging it all in a compact and sleek body.”
The HUAWEI MediaPad 10 FHD quad-core tablet has a 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200 high definition IPS display screen and 16:10 golden ratio providing optimal screen viewing for gaming and high definition video. The MediaPad 10 FHD features an 8 megapixel autofocus rear-facing camera that records 1080P HD videos and a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera.
With its 5.1 Dolby surround sound technology the MediaPad 10 FHD provides theater-quality audio effects even with regular headphones and its dual speaker design provides superior audio performance across gaming, music, and video playing.
The HUAWEI MediaPad 10 FHD is powered by a K3v2 Cortex-A9 1.4GHz quad-core processor and a 16-core GPU. The MediaPad 10 FHD LTE version supports the world’s fastest mobile wireless data connection at up to 150Mbps LTE (compatible with 84Mbps HSPA+), in addition to Wi-Fi and 3G versions. The MediaPad 10 FHD’s 6600mAh battery provides more than 10 hours of continuous usage.
With a keyboard add-on, the MediaPad 10 FHD can be transformed into a ultra-book, and its VGA and HDMI output and office software compatibility supports all your business and entertainment needs. The MediaPad 10 FHD also supports Ethernet access via a USB adapter cable to eliminate network accessibility limitations The HUAWEI MediaPad 10 FHD’s sleek aluminum-alloy body measures 8.8mm thin and weighs only 580g.
The HUAWEI MediaPad 10 FHD WiFi version is now available in China, and will begin shipping to Germany, Sweden, Russia, Belarus, Korea, Bahrain, and Kuwait in September, with other markets to follow.
This new tablet is actually sounded really amazing. With a 16-core GPU this thing really has to pack a punch in the graphics side of things. I can only imagine what some of the Unreal Engine powered games will be looking like when it fully releases. As the details say, the device is already available in China for your purchasing pleasure (I assume because Huawei is a Chinese manufacturer). It’ll begin shipping to other countries very soon. They have said in the month of September but an official date hasn’t been released as of yet.
I’ll be excited to see how this tablet will run, not only that but I will seriously be happy when Huawei will announce a United States version of this tablet. This may not be an iPad or a Transformer Pad, but it does sure look nice. Is anyone out of the United States going to be getting one when it releases in other countries within this next month here?
