According to Androidpc.es, 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’.
