The A80s features the less-popular Allwinner A31s quad-core processor, but it’s still an effective performer, particularly on gaming, thanks to its PowerVR SGX544 graphics engine.
The Teclast A80s tablet itself features an 8.0-inch panel with 1024×768-pixel resolution while it also includes 1GB of RAM and Google’s Android 4.2 operating system on-board ready to roll.
While it includes USB OTG (On the Go) for peripheral connectivity, it also has HDMI v1.4 to play your favourite movies and videos on a big-screen TV or data projector.
Details on storage are still vague but we expect it’ll be either 8/16GB with a MicroSD card reader, supporting up to 32GB of external storage.
The A80s is one of the thinner 8.0-inch tablets around with a claimed thickness of just 8.3mm.
The Allwinner A31s SoC CPU is in strong competition with the RK3188 from rival Rockchip. Both are quad-core CPUs but whereas the RK3188 features ARM’s Cortex A9 architecture, the Allwinner A31s is based on the slower-performing (but we suspect cheaper) Cortex A7 design.
The A80s is selling in China for just Y599 ($US98), making it one of a few quad-core tablets available under $100.
