The Chinese mobile manufacturers Huawei showed their new gadget in Barcelona, Spain at the Mobile World Congress, the Oscars of mobile tech. The new Huawei MediaPad X1 is a 7 inch HD phablet that is meant to be an alternative to Kindle Fire HDX from Amazon or the popular Nexus 7. Is it better than these 2 ones? Not really. But it’s still a very capable mobile device. Huawei MediaPad X1 has front and back HD cameras, works on more than one operating systems and presumably it also has a good battery life. Sounds promising.
The phablet has a 7 inch LTS display with 1200×1920 323 ppi resolution. The viewing angles of the display are 178 degree, supporting 10 touch point at the same time. It plays a 1080p HD movies at 30 frames per second and it features a Glove Mode that allows the users to handle the touchscreen wearing gloves.
