Huawei's latest unveiling comes just days after they released the official promo video for their MediaPad 10 FHD tablet.  Huawei's MediaPad 10 FHD is expected to be released in China, late August this year, at a starting price of 3,000 yuan. With this timeline, we could expect the MediaPad 10 FHD tablet to launch in India in September. 


The Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD is a quad-core tablet with a 10.1-inch display running the Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) OS. The word 'FHD' in the name of the product stands for Full High Definition. Earlier reports claimed that the tablet boasts of a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. However, in the promo video that the company released, it was revealed that the tablet would have a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels with a 16:10 aspect ratio. 


The MediaPad 10 FHD is powered by Huawei's K3 quad-core processor, which the company claims is the fastest on the block, quicker than even the Nvidia Tegra 3. Further, owing to the smaller size of Huawei’s chip, the CPU is clocked at a tantalizing 1.5 GHz, which should handle Android 4.0 OS without breaking into a sweat. The MediaPad 10 FHD also supports high speed wireless communication at upto 84 Mbps (HSPA+) as well as LTE. The Full HD panel is an IPS display, which the company claims gives you accurate colour reproduction as well as better viewing angles. 


Another feature of the tablet is Dolby surround sound technology. The tablet is fitted with an 8MP auto-focus, dual LED, fill-flash rear camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. This is also one of the few tablets to have 2 GB of RAM onboard; so performance should never be an issue. The tablet is built using a unibody aluminium chassis, weighing 580 grams and measuring 8.8 mm.
