TCL announced the oddly named TCL 10 Tab MID on September 3, which is in fact an 8-inc tablet.

As it's released by Verizon, the 8-inch TCL TAB is as you would expect a tablet with cellular 4G LTE capabilities included.

Powered by an octa-core 2.0 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 processor, with 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage with support for memory cards up to 256GB, this tablet has achieved Geekbench 4 benchmark scores of over 1,500 in single core, and over 5,700 in multi-core scores.

In Geekbench 5, it has scored 312 in single-core, and 1,404 in multi-core scores. So that gives you an idea of where we are in terms of performance. It's higher than the 274 and 1,005 Geekbench 5 scores of the Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.4 (2020).

Other reasons to buy it then is the Full HD resolution 1920 x 1200 resolution display, and specs such as a fingerprint reader, a 5MP front camera, an 8MP rear camera with LED flash/light, Android 10, 18W fast charging for the 5500 mAh battery, stereo speakers, a far-field mic, Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, a USB C (2.0) port, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.

TCL 10 Tab MID or TCL TAB as Verizon calls it, weighs 325 grams and is 8.5mm thick.
