Following Xiaomi, another company decided to return to the tablet market that had resurrected after the coronavirus pandemic. We are talking about the Taiwanese company HTC, which today quietly released its new tablet in Russia.
The novelty, which debuted on the Russian market, was named HTC A100. This is the same model that was spotted on the Google Play console in early August. The tablet has mid-range specs and costs less than $ 300.
The new tablet is based on the UNISOC Tiger T618 chipset, on which smartphones such as the ZTE Axon 20 4G and ZTE Blade V30 are based. It is made on a 12-nanometer technological process and includes two high-performance Cortex-A75 cores, six energy-efficient Cortex-A55 cores with a clock frequency of 2 GHz, as well as a Mali-G52 MP2 graphics accelerator. The company has a chip of 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory, expandable using a microSD memory card with a maximum volume of 256 GB.
The front of the HTC A100 has a 10.1-inch IPS LCD panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels. The bezels around the display are of the same thickness on all sides. The body itself is made of aluminum and has rounded corners. Above the display is a 5MP front-facing camera for selfies and video calling, while on the back is a 13MP main camera with an additional 2MP depth sensor for portraits. The tablet is powered by a 7000 mAh rechargeable battery, which is charged via the USB Type-C port. There is also a slot for two SIM cards and a 3.5mm audio jack for connecting headphones. The tablet is powered by the Android 11 mobile operating system.
HTC A100 is already available for purchase in Russia. Here, its MSRP is 19,990 rubles, or about $ 273. Whether the new product will be released in other regions and at what price is still unknown.
