Currently a Huawei conference is on and till now Huawei has unveiled two calling tablets ( Rather large for your face, eh?), a wearable and a smartphone.
Quite a few categories Huawei!
First up, the tablets.
Huawei MediaPad X1
The MediaPad X1 is the slimmest, narrowest and lightest (239 g) tablet in the world.
It also has got calling capabilities, but we doubt many will use it, as at 7 inches, it is just too big to be used as a phone.
It has a 1920*1200 LTPS pixel 7 inch screen with a huge 5000mAh battery to keep it running.
It has two cameras : 13 MP (f/2.2) on the back and 5MP (f/2.4) on the front.
It has 16GB internal storage, expandable through MicroSD to upto 32GB.
It has a Hisilicon Kirin 910 SoC which features a 1.6 Ghz quadcore Cortex-A9 ( Mid End) processor and a Mali-450 MP4 (Quad Core ) GPU with 2 GB of RAM.
The tablet has TD-LTE, FD-LTE, WCDMA, and TD-SCDMA radios, enabling it to use 4G and 3G networks in m ost parts of the world including China.
The wifi radio is 802.11n which is a previous generation standard. The current gen standard is 802.11 ac.
It will release for 499 euros in China, Russia, Western Europe, Middle East, Japan and Latin America by March.
Huawei MediaPad M1
Huawei MediaPad M1
The Huawei MediaPad M1 is a 8 inch calling tablet with almost non-existent bezels.
It has got a 1920*1280 pixel 8 inch screen backed up by a 4800mAh battery.
Behind the scenes, there is a 1.6 Ghz quad core procesor chugging along with 1GB of RAM.
It has stereo front facing speakers with a supposedly sound enhancing feature called SWS.
It sports the now aging 4.2.2 Android Jellybean with some software tweaks.
Price : 299 Euros
Huawei Ascend G6
Huawei announced a smartphone too, but it has at best low end specs : 4.5 inch QHD (960*540) display, 1.2 Ghz Quadcore processor, 8MP camera and 4G LTE.
Its sports Android 4.3 with Huawei’s Emotion UI. You have the option to switch between a multi theme emotion UI or a simple one.
Software features : Face enhancement ( auto ), Selfie Window.
The front camera is a 5MP one with a 20mm lens, meaning you can take “wide group selfies”
It is quite slim, at 7.9 mm but not quite as slim as the Huawei Ascend P6 (6.18 mm). It looks like a cheaper version of the Huawei Ascend P6, which it is.
Price details haven’t yet been revealed but judging by the specs, it would be placed on the lower end of the market.
UPDATE :Price : 249 euros
Huawei TalkBand B1
Huawei released it’s first wearable device today : The TalkBand B1.
The TalkBand B1 can be used as a smartphone companion, watch and fitness tracker.
It has a 1.4 inch OLED (Flexible!) display for displaying notifications and other information. It also has a removable bluetooth ear peice which means you can make calls without removing that smartphone out of your pocket (Though you still need the smartphone for using the calls function).
The TalkBand can count your steps and also calculate distance and calories. It can also track how well you are sleeping.
Huawei says you can extract upto 6 days from the built in 90mAh battery. It is also water resistant, so you may never have to take it off, except for charging, of course.
Price : 99 euros
