Huawei MediaQ M310 Is Now Available For Purchase

Huawei MediaQ M310 is a media player based on Hisilicon K3V2 quad core SoC, the company unveiled at CES 2013. The company expected the product to be released in Q3 2013 (about now), and the good news is that it has started to pop-up on Aliexpress for $109 including shipping. The bad news is that the only seller has no feedback at all, so you take an extra risk if you buy right now, and I’m sure it will show up in more places in the days or weeks ahead.

Huawei MediaQ M310

Let’s remind us of the specifications:

  • SoC – Hisilicon K3V2 Quad-core Cortex A9 processor with Vivante GC4000 GPU
  • System Memory – 1GB RAM
  • Storage – 4GB Flash + microSD card slot
  • Video I/O – 1x HDMI In,1x HDMI Out
  • Audio I/O – HDMI, SPDIF, 3.5mm stereo jack, Mic mono
  • USB – 2x USB 2.0 (1 extension from Y cable) + 1x micro USB
  • Connectivity – 802.11 b/g/n 2.4G/5G 2×2MIMO, Bluetooth 4.0
  • Dimensions (L×W×H) – 65mm × 65mm × 14mm
  • Power supply – 1x Micro USB for power DC 5V 2A

The operating system is a customized version of Android. Storage and memory sizes are a bit on the low side by today’s standard, but it should still be usable. HDMI In is quite a rare feature, and allows you to connect another receiver (DVB, Cable, Satellite) to your device to easily switch between the two devices. The good thing with buying a device from a larger company is that software support is likely to be better, and if you want to see how the device “can make your life rich and colorful…” works and its features, watch the promo video below. Advertised features include display mirroring, Huawei Cloud storage, video chat, gaming, voice control, and more.

    “Storage and memory sizes are a bit on the low side by today’s standard, but it should still be usable. HDMI In is quite a rare feature…”
    There’s another higher spec model with SATA too.

    @qwiqooq
    @onebir is right. There’s also “MediaQ M810 featuring 2GB RAM, 8GB flash, 2x Gb Ethernet, a DVB digital TV receiver, and 2x 3.5″ HDD bays for NAS applications.” At least they demo’ed it during CES, but I can’t find it on Huawei website, and there are not many (recent) references to this device online.

    I wonder is there is any XBMC support on these, they look nice boxes with decent hardware.

    Do Hisilicon chips have a history of supporting libstagefright ? a quick Google says no which would mean XBMC is a no go.

    I don’t know. Maybe it’s possible to find out in Linaro Android Image for K3V2: http://releases.linaro.org/13.07/android/images/hisilicon-4511
