Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 joins the budget Android tablet army

Huawei has launched a new 7-inch tablet to join the cheap Android army, the Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth 2.

This 7-inch tablet isn’t just unusual in name, but in features too as it is capable of making phone calls over a 2G or 3G network, just like a smartphone.

Its specs are far from impressive, but could appeal to those looking for an alternative to the Argos MyTablet or Tesco Hudl if the price is right.

Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 Features
The Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 features a 7-inch 1024 x 600p resolution display with 5-point capacitive touch.

It runs on a quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8x12 A7 processor with 1GB of RAM and is powered by a 4,100mAh Li-Polymer battery.

Coming with a meagre 4GB of internal storage, it does have a microSD slot supporting cards up to 32GB.

The Youth2 offers Android 4.3 Jelly Bean overlaid with the Huawei Emotion UI 1.6.

As mentioned before, the MediaPad 7 Youth2 can make 2G and 3G phone calls for some Trigger Happy TV style fun.

In the rear is a 3-megapixel camera, paired with a secondary 0.3-megapixel option up front.

With the back looking like a budget, oversized iPhone 5S, Huawei has opted to give the Youth2 a black bezel around its 7-inch display to differentiate it from the competition.

Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth2 Release Date and Price

Huawei has yet to release any pricing or release information for the tablet/smartphone Youth2, but we expect it will be on par with something like the Tesco Hudl.
