But according to anrdoidpc.es, Chinese brand PIPO is set to release a new model that ups the resolution to a new level.
The new U6 tablet will feature a 7-inch I-PS (in-plane switching) panel with 1440×900-pixel resolution.
Other details are pretty scarce but we do know it’ll be powered by the ‘everywhere’ tablet chip, Rockchip’s quad-core RK3188 SoC with 2GB of RAM. It’ll also get a sizeable 4650mAh Lithium-ion battery, so battery life should be somewhere up around the five-to-six hour mark.
Over the last couple of months, we seen a significant improvement in the screen resolution and quality coming from many of the Chinese home-brands, not just in tablets but smartphones as well. The likes of the UMI X2 smartphone, now available in India, offering full HD (1920 x 1080-pixel) resolution in a Rs14,000, 5-inch smartphone shows that low-screen resolution will soon become a thing of the past.
However, what the new high-resolution screens are doing is making it possible for even cheaper budget tablets like the Sunnycube V7, hitting the streets for under $60. Sure, the screen resolution may well be only 480 x 800-pixels, but as new technologies come on board, the older ones don’t necessarily disappear straight away – they become more affordable.
