Freelander PX1 7-inch tablet adds GPS,quad-core CPU

freelanderpx1Chinese tablet brand Freelander has launched a new quad-core model with built-in GPS module called the Freelander PX1.

The new model comes as a 7-inch tablet with I-PS touchscreen panel and 1024×768-pixel resolution. It’s powered by MediaTek’s new MT8389 quad-core SoC CPU clocking along at 1.2GHz with 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 8GB of on-board flash storage. That SoC CPU also has a PowerVR SGX544 graphics core on-board so it should also be a reasonable performer on your favourite games.

Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) is preinstalled. The GPS module built-in is compatible with Google and other map options.

There are two cameras on the Freelander PX1 - a 2MP front-facing option plus a 5MP image sensor on the back. It’s also well appointed for peripheral options with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless connectivity. There’s also a miniHDMI port to output to your big-screen TV.

The battery is a 3000mAh Lithium-polymer type, although we don’t know anything about its battery life.

The MediaTek MT8389 chip follows the Rockchip RK3188 path, being a quad-core Cortex A9 design manufactured at the more power-efficient 28-nanometre scale. The difference here is that MediaTek has chosen the PowerVR SGX544 core instead of the RK3188′s Mali-400 MP4 for graphics, potentially giving it a better result. However, the MT8389 only clocks at a lower 1.2GHz whereas the RK3188 is known to clock at up to 1.6GHz.

We don’t have details or pricing on this one but we expect it to become available in the coming weeks.
