The tablet has a PSP-on-steroids look about it with a big 5-inch screen housing 720p (1280×720-pixel) resolution. And as far as hardware goes, Much looks to have got the right components in place with MediaTek’s MT6589 quad-core SoC CPU running at 1.2GHz. The key here is the powerful PowerVR SGX544MP graphics engine, which is generally only surpassed by Qualcomm’s top-drawer Adreno 3xx series graphics engine.
Showing its ready for a fair amount of gaming, the Magic Media i5 comes with a decent 3500mAh Lithium-ion battery, along with 1GB of RAM and 4GB of on-board flash. That storage seems a bit low but we’ll be surprised if it doesn’t come with a MicroSD card slot to boost that up a bit. This one is unusual in that it’s also 3G data-ready with dual SIM cards. It also comes with twin USB2.0 ports and twin cameras.
And the whole thing is driven by Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system.
According to Androidpc.es, the Magic Media i5 is due to go on sale in a week’s time for € 165 (about $US210) - but only in China. (We’ll see if it doesn’t land on Pandawill or dhgate.)
