Yesterday afternoon, Huawei released a teaser showing off a thin metal device, with the following words on top “Rhythm x Entertainment”. The poster shows that the speakers will be located at the side and it will feature at least a metal frame, if not an all metal body. From the size of the device and the design, it looks like Huawei will release the Honor X3 tablet at the event.

Huawei may incorporate the same Kirin 950 chipset that debuted on the Huawei Mate 8 flagship. Thanks to the previous leaks, we kind of know the specifications of the device. The Honor X3 tablet is rumored to come with a 6.2-inch display with 2K resolution screen. Huawei has often stressed 2K resolution is unnecessary on a smartphone sized device. But the company may make an exception with the Honor X3, probably because it’s a large phablet/ tablet.

Under the hood, the X3 is said to come with Kirin 950 with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. At the back, the device will reportedly come with a 20MP camera while up front, you can expect an 8MP sensor. As for the software, the X3 tablet is said to feature the all new Android 6.0 Lollipop update.

Since the teaser confirms the launch on January 5th, we don’t have to wait too long to get more details about the Honor X3. Pricing details are still unknown, but you can expect the tablet to retail for somewhere around $400.
