The iPad mini look-alike has the same basic shape as Apple’s smaller tablet but is only 6.8mm thick (the Apple iPad mini is 7.45mm thick).
Selling for Y899 (approx $149), the U781 Q1 features a 7.85-inch chassis and 1024×768-pixel I-PS touchscreen panel. The tablet is powered by Allwinner’s A31S quad-core SoC CPU, which in turn drives the I-PS panel with PowerVR’s fast SGX544MP2 graphics engine. The processor is accompanied by 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 16GB on on-board flash, preloaded with Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system. Storage can be expanded to a hefty 128GB thanks to a MicroSD card slot.
The tablet packs in two cameras – a 2MP sensor on the front and a higher-quality 5MP option with autofocus on the back. It also comes with a miniHDMI port to out video to your big-screen TV, while power is provided by a 3450mAh Lithium-ion battery. At this stage, there are few details on actual battery life.
As we mentioned, the tablet is now on sale for Y899 – about $150, but the cheapest we’ve seen on Aliexpress is $179. If you see it cheaper, let us know in the comments below.
