The design of the MPIE G7 is specially particularly noteworthy because of its stunning superfine profile measuring only 8 mm and a weight of only 120 g, a stand-out design and elegant aesthetics.

Apart from what we have already shown, it’s important to talk about the display, offering a 5.0-inch HD screen, a little bit small for a phablet, but truly fascinating for razor sharp images, brilliant color and unparalleled clarity. Amazing for visually demanding HD movies, high resolution photos and the latest 3D games, also the capacitive screen offers an experience amazing dive, another plus because it consists of a layer of electrical insulation, such as glass, coated with a transparent conductor such as ITO (indium tin oxide-doped). Since the human body is also an electrical conductor, touching the display surface is a distortion of the electrostatic field of the screen, which is measured by the change in capacitance (electric capacity).


The MPIE G7 provides high-level software optimization to complement the hardware. It includes a powerful MTK6582 Quad Core Cortex A7 processor that can perform multiple tasks at full speed, this CPU is focused on low cost sector, noted for having a price that is very competitive. Mediatek every day is getting stronger, an example of this strength is the partnership that has entered into with HTC, because these processors are irresistible, they have a good performance, and is priced lower than most of the others.
