According to androidpc.es, the new tablet is an Apple iPad mini lookalike with 7.9-inch I-PS (in-plane switching) panel and 1024×768-pixel resolution (sound familiar?). But instead of a dual-core Apple A5 processor, the new V88mini will be yet another tablet to feature Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core Cortex A9 processor.
The tablet is said to measure only 7.2mm in thickness and weigh in around 385grams It’ll also come with two cameras – a 2MP camera on the front for video conferencing plus a larger 5MP on the rear.
The battery is believed to be a sizeable 5000mAh Lithium-ion unit.
By comparison, Apple’s iPad Mini features the same screen size, type and screen resolution and the same thickness. The iPad mini comes with a 16.3-watt-hour battery, which equates to roughly 4400mAh, so slightly small than the V88mini’s option. Where the iPad mini continues to win out is in weight – it tips the scales at only 308grams for the Wi-Fi version and 312grams for the Wi-Fi+Cellular model.
