Huawei showcases MediaPad 10 FHD tablet in pre-launch promo video

Recently, we wrote about the expected release of Huawei's quad-core tablet MediaPad 10 FHD in China in late August this year,  at a starting price of 3,000 yuan. With this timeline, we could expect its launch in India in September. Now the popular Chinese manufacturer Huawei has brought the tablet to the fore by way of a promotional video, a month ahead of its launch.

The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD is a quad-core tablet with a 10.1-inch display running the Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS. The name FHD stands for Full High Definition. Earlier reports stated that the tablet boasted of a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. However, as per the promo video above, the tablet has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels with a 16:10 aspect ratio. The MediaPad 10 FHD is powered by Huawei's K3 quad-core processor, which the company claims is the fastest on the block, quicker than even the Nvidia Tegra 3. Further, owing to the smaller size of Huawei’s chip, the CPU is clocked at a tantalizing 1.5 GHz, which should handle Android 4.0 OS without breaking into a sweat. The MediaPad 10 FHD also supports high speed wireless communication at upto 84 Mbps (HSPA+) as well as LTE. The Full HD panel is an IPS display, which the company claims gives you accurate colour reproduction as well as better viewing angles.

Another feature of the tablet is Dolby surround sound technology. The tablet is fitted with an 8 MP auto-focus, dual LED, fill-flash rear camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. This is also one of the few tablets to have 2 GB of RAM onboard; so performance should never be an issue. The tablet is built using a unibody aluminium chassis, weighing 580 grams and measuring 8.8 mm.

The company launched its 7-inch MediaPad in November last year. The tablet was powered by Qualcomm’s dual-core 1.2 GHz processor and ran on Android 3.2 Honeycomb. In terms of specs, it offered a 217 ppi IPS screen with a WXGA (1280X800 pixels) display, 1080P full HD playback and SRS enhancements. It also came with a 1.3 MP front-facing camera and a 5 MP auto focus rear facing camera with HD video recording capabilities. Connectivity options include a 3.5 mm jack, HSPA+ 14.4Mbps, GPS, Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11n.
