Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 Offers a Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8x12 Performance

The closest competitor of Samsung in the Asian region introduces a new line of MediaPad 7 Youth2 tablet with Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8x12 at 1.2GHz (quad-core) chip behind the metal framed machine. It is their answer for the South Korean company's Galaxy Tab 3 Lite handheld machines which are now headed to the global market following its appearances at CES 2014.

Compared to Huawei's 7-inch tablet, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Lite has a slicker and slimmer design but in terms of performance, having a quad-core technology under the hood is likely similar for both. However, the one with Marvell PXA968 CPU could offer a flagship ergonomic design which is not available on the competing brands.

However, this model fall in terms of storage size. A built-in 4GB is not probably enough for a handful of free apps for Android.

Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 also appeared in the recent CES but pricing details and official date of release is not yet available. As predicted, availability will probably start in local Chinese and neighboring country retail stores in Asia before hitting Europe and American markets.

For specs and other important details, see the following list below:
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8x12 at 1.2GHz dual-core
  • RAM: 1GB
  • Storage: 4GB (MicroSD card slot is also available for additional space)
  • Operating System: Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean)
  • Display: 7-inch, 1024 x 600-pixel resolution
  • Camera: 3-megapixel, VGA in front
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2G, and 3G
  • Ports: No words for USB, HDMI, and other supported port yet
  • Battery: 4100mAh Lithium-Ion
And compared to Huawei's Ascend Mate 2 6.1-inch smartphone, it is slightly bigger and wider but the two different device shares a 3G connectivity support. The company also revealed their next generation of 5.5-inch handset, the B199 packed with 2GB of RAM which is higher compared to what we can get from MediaPad 7 Youth2.

In addition, prices for this 7-inch machine will probably start in less than $150.00 or $200.00 just like of its predecessors in stores.
