Huawei announces three new devices at Berlin IFA show


Manufacturer’s latest smartphone and two tablets to come to UK market in late 2012 and early 2013

Huawei has announced two new tablets and a smartphone which are set to come to the UK market by Q1 2013, at the IFA show.

The Ascend G600 smartphone with 8MP camera and DTS surround sound will be released later this year alongside the MediaPad 7 Lite tablet followed early in 2013 by the firm’s new premium tablet the MediaPad 10 FHD.

Huawei’s premium tablet will have a focus on entertainment with 5.1 Dolby surround-sound included to create, what the firm will market as, ‘theatre-quality audio effects even with regular headphones’.

Huawei Device chairman Richard Yu said: “Most consumers use tablets for entertainment purposes such as gaming, viewing multimedia content, browsing the internet and reading e-books. We have created the MediaPad 10 FHD to be extraordinary – to excel in all of the entertainment capabilities including speed, power, web-browsing, high definition display and audio, and packaging it all in a compact and sleek body.”
