If you haven’t seen the name Huawei in then news over the past few weeks then you have obviously slipped in to an alternate dimension. The Chinese phone maker have been hitting headlines all over the world with their range of new phones, and now they are set to invade our living-rooms with the MediaQ M310.
The Huawei MediaQ is yet another Android set-top-box, which follows in the footsteps of Hisense, Haiers and Xiaomi’s models, and hopes to snatch a slice of the home entertainment market from Apple’s own Apple TV.
Rather than just being a run of the mill Android STB, Huawei have delved deep in to their parts bin and used some of the same high performance hardware which is used in some of their more powerful flagship phones. The CPU is Huawei’s own quad-core H3V2, there is 1GB RAM on-board and graphics are handled by a Vivante GC4000 GPU.
The Huawei MediaQ M310 also features 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, HDMI, 1 x SPDIF, 3.5mm headphone jack plus 2 x USB. There will also be a more powerful version named the M810 available with 2GB RAM and built in TV tuner, Ethernet and disc drive bays available too.[ Source ]
