Chinese tablet maker Hisense made a little splash by launching the Sero 7 line of low-cost tablets with Nexus 7-like specs in 2013. Now the company’s tackling the 8 inch tablet space with the Hisense Sero 8.
The new tablet’s already available for pre-order in the UK for about £90, which is $150 US… although the Hisense Sero 8 would likely be even cheaper if and when it comes to America.
The Hisense Sero 8 features an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel IPS display with 5-point multitouch, a 1.6 GHz Rockchip RK3188T quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
The tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat software, features a 4000mAh battery, and supports 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0. It has a 2MP rear camera and VGA front-facing camera.
While those specs aren’t particularly impressive, they should be good enough to handle most common Android tablet tasks… and they aren’t bad at all for an 8 inch, $150ish tablet.
