Honor, Huawei’s sub-brand, has introduced a new budget tablet in India with support for 3G voice calling. Christened the Honor T1 7.0, the device has a metallic body and comes with support for a single micro-SIM card for voice calling and data usage. The tablet is available for a very affordable price tag of Rs. 6,999. The Honor T1 7.0 was launched on the same day we saw the official arrival of the Honor 5c in India.
As for specs, the Honor T1 7.0 boasts of a 7-inch 1024 x 600 pixel IPS display and is powered by a humble quad-core Spreadtrum SC7731G A7 mobile chipset with four cores clocked at 1.2GHz. The tablet gets 1GB of LPDDR3 RAM as well. Internal storage capacity is limited to 8GB. However, the tablet does support microSD cards for additional storage memory.
As mentioned earlier, the Honor T1 7.0 comes with a SIM card slot with support for voice calling and data usage. Other connectivity options include Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, USB-OTG and Micro-USB.
Moving on to the software, the tablet runs Huawei’s own custom Emotion UI 3.0 which is based on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. This, as you might have already guessed by now is quite outdated considering the fact that the rest of the works has moved on to Android 6.0 Lollipop. In terms of imaging, we don’t expect great quality with the 2-megapixel camera at the rear and a fixed focus camera at the front.
Measuring 8.5 mm thick, the Honor T1 7.0 weighs 278 grams. The tablet has a 4,100 mAh battery that promises 12 hours of movie playback time and a standby time of 300 hours. The Honor T1 7.0 is available only in the silver colour option, and is currently being sold on Flipkart.
