Huawei's 7-inch MediaPad X2 brings dual-SIM, octa-core

Huawei logoHuawei has introduced the seven-inch MediaPad X2 tablet at Mobile World Congress. The company promotes the MediaPad X1's successor as suitable for use as a phone, with dual SIM slots and a thin-bezel housing that measures just 7.3mm thick. The second generation promises to deliver improved call quality, enhanced software and better camera and video features.

The X2 boasts an aluminum frame with a screen-to-body ratio of 80 percent, claimed to be "easy for single-handed operation" as a phone. The seven-inch IPS display offers 1920x1200 resolution, with a pixel density of 323 ppi and a wide viewing angle of 178 degrees.

The tablet is Huawei's first octa-core model with dual SIM slots, powered by a 64-bit Kirin 930 chipset that runs at 2GHz. The hardware supports 'Cat6' LTE technology, with theoretical peak download speeds of 300Mbps on compatible networks.

The upgraded cameras include a five-megapixel front-facing sensor with an f/2.4 22mm wide-angle lens, and a 13-megapixel primary shooter that is claimed to be exceptional in low-light environments. Users can also take advantage of a post-shooting focus and metering mode.
