Huawei unveils 7-inch MediaPad 7 Vogue with voice calling and mid-range specs

Huawei has introduced another mid-range, 7-inch tablet with voice-calling capability, called the MediaPad 7 Vogue.

Between ASUS, Samsung and Huawei, to name a few, there are plenty of 7-inch tablets floating around the marketplace with just as many mediocre specs. The MediaPad 7 Vogue is no different.

It's a device that lets users make network calls with a built-in receiver for direct calling, but it only offers a 1024 x 600 IPS display, quad-core Huawei 1.2GHz Cortex-A9 CPU, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of storage. Huawei said the 3G module supports DC-HSPA+, while the Wi-Fi connection supports 802.11b/g/n.

The MediaPad 7 Vogue also offers a 3-megapixel rear camera, Android 4.1 with Emotion UI 1.5 and a microSD expansion slot.

These specs mirror another Huawei tablet called the MediaPad 7 Lite. Huawei's attempt to take on the Nexus 7 debuted with the MediaPad 7 Lite, as it was the company's first tablet to launch in the UK and similarly featured a 1.2GHz Cortex A8 processor and 7-inch IPS display.

The MediaPad 7 Vogue is another entry-level product from Huawei, but it is a nice option for budget-conscious consumers who want a smartphone and tablet combo cheaply. The device will launch in China this month in black and white color options.

There are no other details in regards to pricing, but Huawei said other markets would follow.
