Huawei, the company which launched the cheapest Android phone – the Huawei Ideos – in 2010 has been trying to make its presence felt on the Android scene. So far, it has been completely overshadowed by the likes of HTC, Samsung and Motorola. Even the announcements of the Huawei Ideos X5 and the Ideos X6 failed to make any major impact.
Now, images of an Android tablet and a new Android smartphone by Huawei have been leaked on its official Flickr account, just a week before MWC.
The Huawei Ideos S7 Slim is an Android tablet which has a 7 inch capacitive touchscreen display. From the images, it seems to have a front facing camera and keys for Home, Menu and Back. We don’t have any other details yet. We can expect it to run Android 2.2 Froyo at launch, with a Android 3.0 Honeycomb upgrade coming later. It will likely be priced much lower than the current crop of Android tablets.
The other leaked device is the Huawei Ideos X3 Android smartphone. It will be a budget phone and will likely have a 3.2 – 3.5 inch display. Both these devices will be launched at the Mobile World Congress in a week.
