Along with the announcement of the 7-inch Huawei Honor Play Tablet today, Huawei also took the wraps of a new 9.6-inch Android tablet called Huawei Honor Play Note.
And while Huawei does occasionally produce some top-end tablets, like the MediaPad X1 7.0, the Huawei Note 9.6 isn’t one of them. This is a mid-range tablet.
Inside we find a Android 4.4 tablet sporting a 9.6-inch screen with a 1280 x 800 resolution IPS display, and 1GB of RAM, but it is at least powered by a nice processor which is the same 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor found in the new 9.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A that’s launching this week.
It weighs 430 grams and is 8.3 mm thick. Battery life is good due to the 4800 mAh battery in combination with a low resolution display. And it has dual band Wi-Fi too.
And while it does run Android 4.4, it also has Huawei’s own EMUI 3.0 user interface running on top of that, which won’t be to everyones liking. The price for this tablet in China is 999 Yuan or the equivalent of $159 USD.
