Huawei is launching the MediaPad X2 tablet/phone, a descendant of the MediaPad X1. The MediaPad X2 ups it’s game with a better Kirin 930 processor, which is the main upgrade for this second-generation MediaPad X. This updated design has 8 CPU cores (ARM A53 core design) and an ARM Mali T628 graphics processor (GPU).
The MediaPad X2 should be able to handle games decently, for gamers wanting to use this device. Just don’t expect it to compete with high-end devices priced in the $650+ range. However, it should be just as good for handling multimedia videos. Again a caveat, the 1080p screen has 2 to 3 times less pixels than other high-end phones you can buy.
The rest of it is very similar to the original X1: the body is nearly the same, and the battery capacity is 5000 mAh for 12 hours of video. The software has been upgraded and The X2 will ship with Android 5.x aka Lollipop. The Huawei MediaPad X2 is more for those who bought the original. It won’t entice others to jump on board. If you enjoyed the first one, you may want to give this one a try. It’s not going to be for everyone, that’s for sure.
