Huawei-affiliated Honor also announced today the 8" Media Pad 2 slate and the Watch S1 smartwatch. Both devices will go on sale this October in China.
The Media Pad 2 packs an 8" IPS display of 1920 x 1200 pixels and runs on the Snapdragon 616 chip with 3GB of RAM. The S616 SoC is quite common among the mid-range smartphones with its octa-core Cortex-A53 processor (4x1.5GHz + 4x1.2GHz) and Adreno 405 GPU.
The slate comes with 16 or 32GB expandable storage, 8MP main camera with LED flash, a 2MP front snapper, and a 4,800 mAh battery. The SIM-enabled version offers LTE connectivity with support for voice calls.
Honor Media Pad 2 runs on Android Marshmallow with Emotion 4.1 launcher. The tablet will be offered in Gold and White paintjobs and will launch in China on October 25, while the pre-orders open on October 19. The 16GB Wi-Fi flavors is priced at CNY 999 ($149), the 32GB Wi-Fi costs CNY 1,299 ($193), and the 32GB LTE model will set you back CNY 1,499 ($222).
The Honor Watch S1 weighs just 35g and packs a circular display with a dial. It is water resistant up to 50m, and supports replaceable bands. The watch focuses on fitness tracking with an accurate heart-rate sensor and pedometer, but it also displays various notifications. The promised battery life is up to 6 days.
The Watch S1 will launch in China also on October 25, while the pre-orders will kick off October 19. You can have it in Black, Blue, or Orange straps for CNY 699 ($103).
There is no info on international availability though.
If OTG is confirmed then you might need external power supply to power the harddrive, on my laptop port 2.0 doesn't work with portable hard drives (in computers it works because of high power 2.0 ports), my mobile's otg works okay with usbs but can't...
Is the tablet could read an external hard drive like 1tgb of seagate?
