The first pre-installed Flyme OS tablet to be launched now looks destiend to be the JDtab, a tablet that have been manufactured by Foxconn. The info comes via Gizchina, who notes that this tablet is manufactured for JD.com, which is why it appears to be the only store to take orders for it right now too. The price is 1499 Yuan in China.
Called JDtab J01, this is a 7.9-inch tablet that runs the Meizu-developed but Android-based Flyme OS that Meizu have previously launched on as much as 17 of their smartphones to date. So this is so far the closest we are to a Meizu tablet, a tablet that occasionally surfaces on the rumor mill but which have never seen the light of day.
The hardware specs on JDtab includes a 2048 x 1536 resolution display, a 2 GHz quad-core processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 64GB of storage, USB Type-C, a 6200 mAh battery capacity with a 10 hour battery life, with a weight for the tablet of 370 grams, and a thickness of 6.95 mm.
So not too far from the Ifive Mini 4s we wrote about yesterday.
JDtab also has Harman Kardon speakers, just like the great Huawei MediaPad M3 does, as well as a 5MP front camera and a 8MP rear camera.
For a quick introduction to the interface of Flyme OS, Meizu’s Flyme division have launched a brief video of Flyme on the MEIZU Pro6 plus Smartphone, seen below.
