While we await the launch of the Huawei MediaPad M7, it is only natural that leaks and renders come up. The latest leaked renders of the device reveal a metal tablet that looks quite trendy. It does not look all that different from the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6, and its design is contemporary. Of course, in today’s terms, a big part of the trend is slimmer bezels, and this is what we have here.
The original source of the leak point to an internally-known codename “Marx” for the device. We expect that Marx will succeed the MediaPad M6, considering its support for Huawei’s smart magnetic keyboard and the M-Pen stylus.
We do not have much information about this device yet. In fact, all we have basically are renders. Even these are not enough to tell us the size of the display.
What we can say, however, is that Marx will likely be a flagship device. This means that we expect to see the HiSilicon Kirin 990 SoC. The device, if it is indeed the MediaPad M7, will also likely come with at least 8GB of RAM.
One thing that we easily notice from the renders is the presence of a punch-hole on the front of the device. This is quite unconventional on a tablet, and it will likely spark controversy. It may just be the first time we are seeing something like this on a tablet. We expect that it will house the selfie camera.
On the rear of the device, we see a dual-camera setup. On the bottom is a USB Type-C port between two speaker grills. One of these may actually be a microphone or both may be speakers.
We do not have renders of the opposite edge where we believe the 3.5mm jack will be. So, we cannot confirm the presence of the 3.5mm jack at the moment.
We see the M-Pen stylus on the top of the tablet, suggesting magnetic attachment. This means that we may not see an internal storage compartment for it within the tablet.
The MediaPad M6 tablets are just about four months old. So, it may be too early to talk about the unveiling of the MediaPad M7. We will keep you informed as soon as we get more information about the M7, and when we get wind of its actual launch event.
