And that’s for an octa-core tablet!
When we first wrote about the Acer Iconia One 10 (B3-A10) a little over a month ago, the specs had not been confirmed yet. But the Acer Iconia One 10 specs for the B3-A10 and B3-A20 models have now been confirmed.
Let’s start with the funniest specs for the Acer Iconia One 10 (B3-A10). Sure, it has a octa-core 1.7 GHz MediaTek MT8151V processor. Great! But it only has 1GB of RAM (DDR3L). Now that’s going raise some eyebrows. The GPU is still a Mail-450 MP4 though, while it has storage options are 16GB and 32GB with support for microSD cards up to 128GB.
The display resolution of the 10.1-inch IPS screen is 1280 x 800. Other than that it has 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi support and Bluetooth 4.0, a 0.3MP front camera and a 4.9MP rear camera. It also has a 5440 mAh battery capacity which is claimed to be enough for 7 hours of average use. The thickness is 9.2 mm and the weight is 508 grams.
The Acer Iconia One 10 (B3-A20) is very similar. What’s different is the quad-core 1.3 GHz MediaTek MT8163 processor, a 15% higher battery capacity, together with 10% more weight and thickness.
The color options of the Acer Iconia One 10 are black and white, and the pattern of the back of the tablet is an interesting design touch. It also comes with the Acer Iconia Suite of apps, which includes split window multitasking.
