Huawei still has a way to go before it has the name recognition of a Samsung or a Sony, but what we’ve been seeing from the company lately has us thinking that the manufacturer will be finding itself on the receiving end of a lot of positive attention this year, thanks to some impressive-sounding hardware. The CES gave Huawei the opportunity to reveal its shockingly thin Ascend P1 S, and invitations to its MWC event foretell the debut of even higher-end hardware for its Diamond line of phones. The latest Huawei model to cross our path is a ten-inch tablet the company will likely show-off at the MWC next week.
While there are plenty of photos of this Android to give you a sense of its design, thanks to Hi-tech.mail.ru getting a sneak preview of the tablet pre-MWC, there are still a good number of questions about its specs. The tablet will supposedly arrive running Ice Cream Sandwich, and will feature an eight-megapixel camera. Beyond that, screen resolution, processor configuration, and storage options are still unknown.
Reportedly, the Huawei tablet feels like a cross between a Galaxy Tab 10.1 and an iPad 2, due to the Samsung’s size and the metal build of the iPad. While not an exceptionally lightweight tablet, it supposedly still does a good job despite its metal casing and sheer size. Look for full confirmation on the tablet’s specs, as well as news of a name, as we get started with the MWC.
