Huawei bringing next-gen LTE to the masses with the affordable Ascend G6 and MediaPad M1

HUAWEI CONSUMER BUSINESS GROUP ASCEND

Following its announcement of the MediaPad X1, Huawei has announced two more devices at Mobile World Congress both featuring next generation 150Mbps Cat 4 LTE: the 4.5-inch Ascend G6 and 8-inch MediaPad M1.

Both devices are meant to be easily affordable with relatively low price-points and their spec-sheets reflect that. Huawei’s guessing there’s plenty of people who’d be willing to make the sacrifice in something like display resolution for super fast data speeds.

Available in a wide variety of colors including pink, blue, black, white and gold, the Ascend G6 is a handsome slate coming in at 7.85mm thick (for the LTE variant, 7.5mm for 3G) featuring a 4.5-inch 960 by 540 display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8 megapixel f/2.0 camera, 5 megapixel front-facing camera, NFC and a 2000mAh battery.

The MediaPAd M1 falls far behind the X1 specs wise, but doesn’t underwhelm with an 8-inch 1280 by 800 display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 1 megapixel front-facing camera, 5 megapixel camera and 4800mAh battery inside a 7.9mm shell.

Both devices are expected to launch in Q1 2014 at 299 Euros for the M1 and 249 Euros for the LTE enabled G6.
