MWC 2014 - Just when you thought 6-inch smartphones were big, Huawei has gone back to the drawing board with its new, gigantic 7-inch smartphone, the MediaPad X1.

Huawei's new smartphone is still technically a smartphone at 7 inches, but it is really pushing the boundaries of a tablet here. We have small bezels on the side - just 3mm - and it is quite thin at just 7.18mm. The build quality looks great, with an all-glass front and aluminum back and sides that use an interesting nanotechnology to keep it rigid.


Inside of the MediaPad X1 we have an unknown-until-now Kirin 910 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1920x1080-pixel screen, 13-megapixel Sony Exmor R rear-facing camera backed up by a wide-angle 5-megapixel camera on the front. The MediaPad X1 can also charge other devices from its USB port, too. The MediaPad X1 will arrive in China, Russia, Western Europe, the Middle East, Japan and Latin America in March.

It will arrive in four colors, and a price of €399 to or $548 - which is definitely not too bad considering what you're getting with Huawei's MediaPad X1.
