Supersized, super fast, supercharged — a new HUAWEI 7-inch Android tablet that lets you make phone calls, download 1GB movie in a minute, and use it as powerbank to charge other mobile devices is now in the Philippines.
HUAWEI, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today announced the market availability of the world’s slimmest and narrowest 7-inch LTE Cat4-enabled all-in-one phablet.
First launched during the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, HUAWEI X1 combines the functionality of a smartphone and tablet with 4G LTE connectivity to provide an all-round mobile experience. HUAWEI X1’s full aluminum alloy unibody is compact and weighs less than a canned drink at 239 grams. Ultra-slim at 7.18mm, the device provides outstanding comfort and ease of use, even when operated with a single hand. Its 7-inch 1200 x 1920 FHD LTPS 10-point capacitive touch display provides an incredibly crisp and dynamic visual experience and features an outstanding 80 percent screen-to-body ratio. HUAWEI X1 features content adaptive brightness control (CABC) technology together with a 515 nits brightness level to allow amazing visual clarity under direct sunlight. It also includes intelligent grip suppression so you can hold and scroll simultaneously.
HUAWEI X1 is powered by a Kirin 910 1.6 GHz quad-core processor and runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The ultra-long lasting 5000 mAh battery provides an exceptional 21 days of standby time, more than five full days of continuous video or web surfing, and also powers additional mobile devices with its reverse charging function. HUAWEI X1 uses the ‘Super Decode Media Files’ function to differentiate between file types to ensure the smooth streaming of media while preserving battery power and the ‘Mail Grouping Service’ which differentiates between various types of signals and mobile phone ringtones to organize messages.
HUAWEI X1 makes professional-quality photography possible on a phablet with an advanced 13MP Sony Exmor R BSI rear-facing camera that has a five plastic elements (5P) lens featuring panoramic shooting and an IMAGESmart engine with auto-scene recognition. Its 5MP front-facing camera has a four plastic elements (4P) lens and HUAWEI’s proprietary self-focus tips, preview screen, 10-level auto-facial enhancement and voice-activated hands-free capture, to take the best ‘selfies’. The phablet adds an extra dimension to photos with the ‘Voice Photo’ function, which takes photos accompanied by a 10-second audio clip that can be shared via Facebook and WeChat. The IR blue glass infrared filter also enables filming or photographing in low light.
LTE Cat4-enabled to make connectivity faster and more reliable than ever, HUAWEI X1 downloads work files in seconds and a 1GB movie in one minute with speeds of up to 150 Mbps. With in-built WiFi routers, 2.4/5G dual mode WiFi support, as well as voice call and SMS capabilities, the device provides on-the-spot connection to friends and family. The AirSharing function enables screen sharing and the transfer of images via cloud photo sharing. Navigating HUAWEI X1 is a breeze with the latest intuitive and easy-to-use interface, Emotion UI 2.0, featuring easily customizable home screens, enhanced ‘Standard’ and ‘Simplicity’ UIs and more than 1,000 diverse themes.
The Huawei X1 is available in black and white at PhP19,590 suggested retail price.
