As far as big-brand names go, not too many will have heard of Colorfly outside of China but the tablet developer has just launched a new model thin enough to give the iPad mini something to think about.
According to pcpop.com, the new Colorfly U781 Q1 measures up just 6.8mm thick, well under the 7.45mm of the Apple seven-inch model.
The U781 Q1 features the new Allwinner A31S quad-core CPU combined with PowerVR’s dual-core SGX544 MP2 graphics processor unit (GPU).
It comes with 1GB of RAM plus a 7.85-inch in-plane switching (I-PS) panel with 1024×768-pixel resolution. You get 16GB of on-board storage but the microSD card slot is claimed to support 64GB cards for greater expansion.
It’s power by Google’s Android 4.1 operating system, but there’s no word on a 4.2 upgrade.
There are two cameras on-board – a 2MP front-firing unit plus a 5MP sensor on the rear with auto-focus.
Wireless connectivity includes 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi but no Bluetooth.
At this stage, there are no release details or pricing but we expect it to hit the streets within the next few weeks.
