A couple of days ago Huawei’s new Ascend P7 press image leaked online, following an earlier teaser video for the company’s upcoming MWC product releases. Now two more Huawei devices have been leaked ahead of schedule, the mid-range Ascend G6 smartphone and high-end MediaPad X1 tablet.

The Ascend G6 is a 4.5 inch model measuring 130 x 65 x 7.5mm, although we don’t know the display resolution yet, and comes with a MediaTek MT6582 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz. It also features 1GB of RAM, a 8 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front facing camera. The Ascend G6 will come with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, so sadly no KitKat.

As for Huawei’s tablet, the MediaPad X1 (picture at the top of the post) is a little more of a high-end affair, with a 7 inch 1920×1200 resolution display, 1.6GHz quad-core HiSillicon 910 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a very respectable 6,000 mAh battery. The tablet will also feature a 5 megapixel rear camera, will come in 16GB and 32GB internal memory variations, and will support even more storage space via a MicroSD slot. The tablet is also expected to arrive in an LTE variant too. Finally, the Huawei MediaPad X1 should be about as thin as the Ascend G6 smartphone and could be very reasonably priced at just $200 for the cheapest model.

Following the initial leaks, Huawei has also tweeted an image teasing four different devices for MWC. The MediaPad X1 and Ascend G6 appear at the right and in the centre left of the image respectively, but there are also two currently unknown devices in there as well. From the looks of things, one is larger tablet sporting stereo speakers, and the other could be a mobile hotspot?
