Chinese manufacturer Huawei has announced the7 Lite, a new 7 inch tablet to follow in its predecessor’s footsteps. Huawei remains silent on the subject of which CPU will be used, but we’re hoping for a quad core. Huawei will certainly need a quad core processor to compete with Google’s Nexus 7 tablet. Several other details regarding the MediaPad 7 Lite have been released.
The Huawei MediaPad 7 Lite will have an IPS display with 1280 x 800 pixels. Its predecessor had a resolution of only 1024 × 600 pixels. The MediaPad 7 Lite also has a special telephone-esque feature thanks to an integrated voice modem using GSM phone. Huawei also promises “high quality” 3G connectivity with the tablet. The device also can support 1080p video playback. Other features include Wi-Fi and front and back cameras. The housing is made of an aluminum alloy. Sadly, the operating system is still running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich not Jelly Bean, but Ice Cream Sandwich will certainly get the job done. The device is called light and compact by Huawei, but these characteristics are common on all tablets anyway.
