A few days back, popular leakster @evleaks revealed that Huawei is currently working on a 7” Android tablet for Google. Some more info on the device has now surfaced online, courtesy of Huawei Blog.
Citing sources in China, the report published by Huawei Blog claims the upcoming tablet will feature a 7-inch AMOLED display with 1440 x 2560 Quad HD resolution. This would give the Huawei 7P a pixel density figure of 419 pixels per inch, which sounds quite impressive for a tablet. Combined with the perfect blacks delivered by an AMOLED display, the tablet would be a fantastic device for media consumption both at home as well as on the go.
Under the hood, Huawei 7P will apparently be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset, packing the Adreno 530 GPU. It will be paired with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM, similar to the setup on the HTC-made Google Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones. In terms of storage, the tablet is said to include 64GB of onboard storage, although we do think there is a possibility of multiple storage options at launch. The rear camera is tipped to be a 13MP unit, but there is no word on the front-facing camera just yet.
Quite clearly, with such high-end specifications, it is not likely that Google will price the upcoming tablet similarly to its previous 7” Nexus tablets. Provided the above specs are accurate, we don’t see Google pricing it under the $350 mark.
Since Huawei has already registered the 7P name, the tablet might be marketed as the Pixel 7P tablet, although it hasn’t yet been established that Google will indeed be using the Pixel branding for the device. Regardless of what name Google chooses for the device, we do expect it to show up at Google’s October 4 event, where the company will be unveiling the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones.
