Huawei shows off Huawei Ascend G6 and MediaPad M1

Huawei has shown the Ascend 6G ahead of the Mobile World Congress. The device is similar to the Ascend P6, but has a lower resolution screen. Huawei also showed a new tablet, the MediaPad M1.

The Ascend G6, which resembles a budget version of the Ascend P6, will initially come out with a version that only supports 3G, sometime in the first quarter of 2014. A version that supports lte category 4, which offers download speeds of 150, will follow in April. .8Mbps and upload speeds of 51Mbps, Engadget writes. Incidentally, the user’s network must have support for lte cat4 to enable those speeds. The 4g version is slightly thicker: 7.85mm, compared to the 7.5mm of the 3g-only version.

Furthermore, the G6 has a 4.5″ LCD screen with a resolution of 960 by 540 pixels. The P6 has a 4.7″ screen with a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. In addition, the phone has an unspecified 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, a battery with a capacity of 2000mAh and an 8-megapixel camera with an IMX134 sensor from Sony. The front-facing camera has a resolution of 5 megapixels. The version of the G6 with 4g will cost 250 euros.

The MediaPad M1 tablet also has a 1.6GHz quadcore chip of unknown make. Like the G6, the MediaPad M1 will initially only be available in a 3g version and the version with lte cat4 will follow later this year. Furthermore, the tablet has an IPS screen with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, a battery of 4800 mAh and a 5-megapixel camera. The M1 will cost 300 euros, although it is unclear whether this concerns the version with or without 4G.
