Huawei to launch Vision smartphone and MediaPad tablet

Chinese manufacturer to launch new tablet and smartphone in second phase of attempt to make the Huawei name known in the UK

Huawei is set to launch two own-brand devices in the UK tonight (November 7) at an event in central London.

The event will mark the debut of the Vision, the Chinese firm’s second own-brand smartphone, following the launch of the Blaze this summer. It comes with a 1GHz processor, Android 2.3 and a five mega-pixel camera.

The Vision is aimed more at high-end consumers than the Blaze, which is priced at around £100 and has significantly less processing power and a smaller screen.

Alongside the Vision, Huawei is expected to launch the MediaPad (pictured), a 7-inch tablet with a dual-core 1.2Ghz processor and 5 megapixel camera. It is 10.5 millimetres thick, and weighs 390 grams.

The MediaPad runs Android Honeycomb 3.2, the latest version of Google’s operating system designed for tablets, which is the first to include optimisation for 7-inch devices.

The launch event, which will be held in Mayfair, will feature a performance by artist Plan B, winner of the 2011 Brit award for best british male.
