The papers for the FCC approval of the Huawei MediaPad T3 7 was published yesterday, and the approval brought with it some more information of the specs too, and what we can expect.
The good thing is that this is a new 7-inch Android tablet, since new 7-inch Android tablets are far between these days. Huawei has named it both Huawei MediaPad T3 7 and Huawei MediaPad T3 7.0, with the internal code name “Baggio2” and the model number BG2-W09.
From before we have already written that it has been officially listed with Android 6.0, dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi cover, and Bluetooth 4.2. But at least new specs revealed also includes a 3000 mAh battery and a GPS sensor, and we get to see the illustrations for it as well, with the holes in the casing for the speaker.
The edges of the tablet are square on top and round at the bottom, so it will be fun to watch it that materialize on this tablet.
An 8-inch version of the new MediaPad T3 series have also leaked, and so have a few other Huawei mobile devices, and even a new Windows 10 Huawei Matebook. So Huawei have enough unannounced mobile products piled up by now to have their own large press show in a not too distant future.
The market is also screaming for a new 7-inch Android tablet. The globally most popular 7-inch Android tablet in Q1 2017, apart from the not-really-Android $49 Amazon Fire tablet, is the Asus ZenPad C 7.0. And although it is a well put together tablet, with a generally smooth browser and some appeal, it is powered by an Intel Atom x3 Sofia processor, and has a 1024 x 600 resolution display.
