PIPO to launch quad-core U8 tablet with 7.85-inch IPS panel

pipou8Chinese tablet maker PIPO is set to release a new 7.85-inch tablet called the U8.

According to Androidpc.es, the new model will feature RockChip’s quad-core RK3188 processor combined with an I-PS (in-plane switching) LCD panel with 1024×768-pixel resolution (some are suggesting it’s exactly the same panel as used in the iPad mini but that there’s no confirmation on that yet).

While few details are known at this stage, the unit, which looks similar to Apple’s iPad mini, will include a decent 4750mAh Lithium-ion battery and include MicroSD card slot and HDMI output.┬áIt will also feature 2GB of RAM but no word as yet on internal storage or which version of Android will be supplied.

Further reports suggest the tablet will go on sale in China this month.

The device is said to be in final engineering but at this stage, no pricing details or launch date have been announced.

The compact seven-inch tablet market has boomed on the back of Apple’s iPad mini and the Google Nexus 7. The PIPO U8 will have plenty of company.
