New PIPO M7pro 8.9-inch tablet features Samsung screen: reports

m7proChinese local-brand tablets are becoming more sophisticated in an ever tightening market and PIPO is joining the trend with its upcoming M7pro release.

According to, the new tablet will feature an 8.9-inch Samsung Super PLS panel with near-Retina resolution of 1920×1200-pixels – better than Full HD.

Details are scant at this stage but the new model will follow the growing trend of tablets powered by the Rockchip RK3188 quad-core CPU. It’ll come with Android 4.2.2 preloaded and possibly even come with back-facing 5MP image sensor. You’ll also get HDMI output plus USB OTG for connecting up peripheral storage devices.

From what we can gather, the PIPO M7pro Wi-Fi edition will sell for Y1199 while a 3G variant will be sold at Y1399.

At Y1199 (approximately $US195), it’s one of the first, if not the first, to provide a quad-core Full HD-or-better resolution tablet for under $US200, which isn’t a bad effort, particular if it includes that Samsung panel as reports are suggesting.

Unfortunately, we know nothing about storage but we suspect it’ll include something like 8 or 16GB of built-in flash with a MicroSD card offering another 32GB if the PIPO M7Pro follows the well-worn tradition of previous tablets.

At this stage, we don’t have any details on when it will be available but we suspect ‘watch this space’.
