Huawei MediaPad X2, a giant phablet unveiled






Huawei has just unveiled the Huawei MediaPad X2 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015. The Huawei MediaPad X2 comes with a fully laminated 7-inch ultra HD IPS screen and a slim body of only 7.28 mm. The MediaPad X2 also houses an ultra octa-core chipset, making it the first 64-bit ultra octa-core, 4G-enabled LTE dual-sim phablet.


The new MediaPad X2 comes with a 7-inch LPTS display with a resolution of 1920x1200 pixels which covers more than 80% of the device's front. Unlike the Mediapad X1, the Mediapad X2 boasts an "ultra" octa-core, 64-bit Kirin 930 chipset clocked in at 2.0Ghz. The 13MP camera at the back boasts a dedicated ISP chip, which is said to generally improve the low-light performance of the tablets's camera sensor and also bear other goodies to the table.

The front-facing snapper is a 5MP one. The device will be available in two versions - one with 2GB of RAM/16GB of native storage and a beefier one with 3GB of RAM/32GB of available storage. Connectivity-wise, both of these are dual-SIM slates with LTE Cat.6 on board.
