Teclast A11s packs in less RAM but quad-core CPU, lower price


Chinese tablet brand Teclast has been busy with its A11 tablet chassis, upgrading it from its launch dual-core CPU design to Allwinner’s quad-core A31 processor.

However, the tablet maker has just announced a new lower-priced quad-core version called the Teclast A11s. Still with Allwinner’s A31 quad-core SoC CPU, it appears Teclast has dropped the amount of RAM from 2GB down to 1GB. But it also comes with a corresponding drop in price to just Y899 ($US150).

The Teclast A11s features a 10.1-inch I-PS touchscreen panel with 1280×800-pixel resolution, but it’s driven by the PowerVR SGX544 Mp2 eight-core GPU inside the 1GHz-clocked A31 CPU. That should provide quite decent gaming speed.

It comes with 16GB of flash storage on-board with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) preloaded. You can expand that via the MicroSD card slot up to 32GB. There’s also a decent list of peripheral options too with HDMI v1.4 video output, along with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless networking.

The Teclast A11s comes with the same 6800mAh Lithium-ion battery as the previous A11 model so it should deliver reasonable battery life.

It measures up at 257 x 176 x 9.9mm with a weight of 689grams.

The Allwinner A31 SoC is based on a quad-core Cortex A7 design coupled with PowerVR’s SGX544 MP2 eight-core graphics engine. It competes constantly with Rockchip’s RK3188 quad-core CPU, which has a faster Cortex A9 quad-core design but slower graphics thanks to its Mali-400 MP4 GPU core selection.

At this stage, availability is still unclear but we’ll bring you updates as they come to hand.
