Could this be the cheapest dual-core 7-inch tablet on the market? Reports are that Chinese tablet maker SunnyCube is set to launch this V7 tablet for just $US40 inside China in June.
The tablet has the basic 800×480-pixel (WVGA) resolution you typically see on a 7-inch panel but is powered by a 1.5GHz VIA WonderMedia WM8880 dual-core Cortex A9 SoC (system-on-a-chip) processor. Website Android Inside is already offering it for $US80. However, reports are that it will be available on sites such as Aliexpress for nearer to $US50 at time of launch.
The Sunnycube V7 tablet will include Android 4.2 operating system, along with Wi-Fi and HDMI output. It’ll feature dual cameras – 2MP on the rear and a basic VGA (640×480-pixel) unit on the front. There’s also a MicroSD card slot but no word on maximum capacity (however, most likely it’ll be 32GB).
Cnx-software.com has found reports of benchmark tests with an AnTuTu v3 score of 11,612.
VIA’s new WonderMedia WM8880 processor looks to be a minor speed-bump upgrade of the previous-generation WM8850, adding in a second Mali400 graphics core to boost gaming capabilities.
We’ll see how long it takes for the tablet to hit eBay stores.
