Huawei’s new slate could well give Google’s Nexus 7 a good run for its money.

The company’s MediaPad X1 tablet comes with a similar 7-inch display with 1920 x 1200 resolution but weighs in at just 239g. The tablet is equipped with the company’s HiSilicon Kirin chipset that comes with a 1.6GHz quad-core Cortex A9 processor and comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

There’s also 2GB of RAM, a Mali 450 GPU and an unspecified amount of built-in memory that can be expanded using a microSD card. The smartphone also boasts tri-band 3G connectivity, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

A 5MP camera rests at the back of the device while a 1.3MP snapper is placed at the front near the top bezel of the phone. Huawei has also added an HDMI out and a USB port for easier content streaming or transferring.

As of today, the MediaPad X1 hasn’t been formally announced yet. The information stated above was courtesy of a Chinese certification body (Tenaa), so there are still no concrete details when it comes to its international debut and pricing.
