The Huawei S7 tablet was scheduled to be launched on July 7th. Even pre-orders had commenced at eXpansys. However, much to the disappointment of those who were awaiting its release, that has not happened. The tablet to be with its Snapdragon base did not meet up to its hyped up entrance date for reasons not so much on the fault of Huawei as much as optimistic estimation given by the retailer itself. Now the expected dates have been re-slated as August 5th.
There has been some early reviews of the Huawei S7 and things were looking bright for the 7 inch Android tablet. Issues of a resistive touch screen, difficulty in user input and a low battery life have been highlighted as problem areas of the tablet as per the review.
The plus points of the device have been listed as the strong build quality of the device, a 12 hours battery standby time even when connected to the WiFi, good voice quality and the ability to playback 720p HD quality videos.
There were also news from Huawei of the resistive touch screen to be replaced with a capacitive screen. Whether they would be coming out with this type of the screen during its initial launch of launch with a resistive touch screen and then update later to capacitive is however yet unknown. Clock speed of the Snapdragon processor too needs to be established prior launch. Whether that stands at 1 GHz or have been scaled down to 768 MHz is another thing that everyone will like Huawei to confirm.
To confuse things further, there are rumors of a whole new model with a capacitive touchscreen capable of accepting finger inputs to be available later is also doing the rounds.
