The Huawei MediaPad T3 tablet has just paid a visit to TENAA, China’s equivalent to the FCC. As it’s usually the case when a smartphone or a tablet visits TENAA, we now have plenty of MediaPad T3 specs to work with, not to mention that the listing also revealed the design of Huawei’s upcoming tablet. This tablet was certified under the KOB-L09 model number, and that very same tablet received its Wi-Fi certification last month. Now, do keep in mind that this tablet was actually certified under the Honor brand, which is kind of Huawei’s subsidy, even though it operates as a separate company. This suggests that the tablet could be released as the Honor Pad 3 outside of China, and could even make an appearance at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, even though the company’s press event will probably be reserved for the Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus.
If you take a look at the provided images down below, you’ll get to see the Huawei MediaPad T3 aka Honor Pad 3 in the flesh. This tablet is made out of metal, and it comes with some considerable bezels all around. All of its physical keys are placed on the right, and so is the tablet’s SIM card tray, which suggests this tablet will offer 4G LTE connectivity. The Huawei MediaPad T3 will, according to TENAA, sport an 8-inch 1280 x 800 IPS display, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable internal storage. The device will be fueled by a quad-core SoC clocked at 1.4GHz, which could be the Snapdragon 425 processor. A 5-megapixel camera is placed on the back of this tablet, and a 2-megapixel shooter can be found on its front side. Android 7.0 Nougat comes pre-installed on this tablet, and on top of it, you’ll get the company’s Emotion UI (EMUI) 5.0. A 4,650mAh battery is also a part of this package, while TENAA also reports that the tablet will be available in Gold and Gray color variants.
That is basically all the info that TENAA shared this time around. As already mentioned, this tablet could be announced during MWC 2017, though it definitely won’t be Huawei’s main announcement, that’s for sure. On the other hand, Huawei / Honor might introduce this tablet during a separate event in the coming weeks, we’ll see.
