An upcoming Android tablet, the Huawei Honor X3 has been spotted on Chinese certification site TENAA, suggesting it will be released in the near future.
The firm had much to showcase at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, re-introducing its flagship Mate 8 phablet, and some new devices including the MediaPad M2 tablet. It had been expected that the Honor X3 tablet would be unveiled at the time but it wasn’t.
However, the Huawei Honor X3 has surfaced on TENAA, revealing a bit about its specs and what users can expect when the device finally launches.
The TENAA listing shows that Honor X3 will be similar to the MediaPad M2, but with a visibly different design. According to TENAA, the Honor X3 will sport a 7-inch 1920 x 1200 display, along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
The Huawei Honor X3 will be powered by a mid-range Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core processor.
A 13-megapixel snapper will be placed on the back of the tablet, while a 5-megapixel front shooter will be available for selfies. It will run Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top.
The Huawei Honor X3 will sport a huge non-removable 4,230mAh battery, as it is a metal unibody handset according to TENAA. A fingerprint scanner will also be on board and it will be located on the right side of the device.
Rumors have suggested that a higher variant of the Huawei Honor X3 might be launched as the original version doesn’t exactly sport high-end specs.
It’s believed that the higher-end model will have a QHD display, 4GB of RAM, and Huawei’s Kirin 950 64-bit octa-core SoC.
The battery will also be somewhat bigger than that of the regular version, most likely a 5,000mAh unit.
The regular model of the Honor X3 tablet is expected to cost around 1,999 Yuan (that’s about 62,000 Naira), while it remains unknown how much will the higher-end model cost- as it’s not sure if Huawei will release it.
