Now I know we’ve seen a lot of these in the past year, but this budget tablet might have a few tricks up its sleeves. The 7-inch 1024×600 display is nothing to write home about, but it is of the IPS variant so that should ensure wide viewing angles. The MediaPad 7 Vogue has an aluminum unibody design coming in black and white colors, tipping the scales at 335 grams and is 9.5mm thick.
An aluminum unibody design should ensure a premium feel on an otherwise budget tablet.
Underneath that metal is Huawei’s own quad-core K3V2 Cortex-A9 processor, clocked at 1.2Ghz. This the same processor as the one found in the Ascend Mate which we reviewed a week ago, and we found the performance of the processor to be decent, however the Ascend Mate’s chipset was clocked at a higher 1.5Ghz.
The MediaPad 7 Vogue also comes with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, and a microSD slot for an additional 32GB worth of space. There’s a 3-megapixel camera on the back, and a 0.3-megapixel camera on the front.
On the software side of things the tablet is running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, with Huawei’s Emotion UI on top. Keeping the device running is a decent 4100mah battery, which Huawei says is good for 4 consecutive HD movies, or 20 hours of continuous calling.
That’s right guys and gals, this is another 7-inch tablet capable of making calls (just like the Asus Fonepad), meaning the MediaPad 7 Vogue has a Wi-Fi and 3G variant. The 3G variant supports DC-HSPA+, allowing the tablet to reach download speeds of up to 42Mbps.
No prices have been listed just yet, but the MediaPad 7 Vogue will be available in China this month, with other markets to follow soon after.
Are you interested in this budget tablet? Or is the Nexus 7 still the go to 7-inch tablet?

I’m waiting for the first tablet that will be phone (I mean real phone) capable. For me 7″ is the way to go… Phone with bluetooth headphone, I already use headset with my Nexus 4.
Instead of carrying my phone in my pockets, I’ll carry it in my briefcase…
