Chinese tablet brand Colorfly has launched its latest 10.1-inch Android tablet dubbed the Colorfly CT102 Qise 3.
It’s a thin quad-core 10.1-inch model with better than Full HD resolution. It’s powered by Allwinner’s quad-core A31 SoC CPU, which means it’s a decent gaming tablet, thanks to its PowerVR SGX544MP2 multi-core GPU.
However, it’s the panel itself that will gain most interest here – a near-Retina style 1920×1200-pixel model.
It’s decently appointed with cameras – a basic 2MP option on the front for video conferencing and a more serious 5MP sensor on the back.
It comes with 32GB of on-board storage and a MicroSD card slot to expand that by a further 32GB. Other than that, details are fairly scant – no information on Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, peripheral options, even which version of Android it’ll be loaded up with.
At this stage, there’s also no word on pricing or availability but we expect it to begin hitting store shelves shortly.
The Allwinner A31 is a quad-core Cortex A7 processor in competition with the popular Rockchip RK3188 for use in China’s booming tablet manufacturing market. The A31 doesn’t match the RK3188′s Cortex A9 architecture for raw processing speed, but Allwinner’s decision to incorporate PowerVR SGX544 MP2 cores keeps it in the hunt with tablet buyers for its superior gaming speed. In combination with that high-pixel-density screen, the Colorfly CT102 Qise 3 should actually be quite a reasonable gaming option all-round.
Being a Cortex A7 design and manufactured at a 28-nanometre scale, it should deliver pretty decent battery life. That said, it won’t quite reach the same performance levels as you’ll see from the RK3188 or other similar Cortex A9-grade SoC CPU-powered devices.
