So even though Alldocube had already launched two best selling small tablets in the 8-inch category this year, starting with the Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini, and then in quick succession the top model Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro, they still launched a third 8-inch tablet this week, named Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Lite. And the price is only $84.99.
But this tablet is a little different from the other two. For one, this is a straight 8-inch tablet, whereas the other two are 8.4-inch tablets.
The low price is partially what this tablet is about, to a large degree due to the octa-core 2.0 GHz Allwinner A523 processor. And it also only has 4GB RAM and another 4GB virtual RAM, and 64GB storage.
The 8-inch HD display also only has a screen resolution of 1280 x 800. So all those thing put together, is what makes this such an affordable tablet.
Because in other areas we are looking at Widevine L1 support, stereo speakers, microSD card support up to 512GB, a 5MP front FHD camera, and a similar 5MP rear camera with LED.
Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Lite also has dual-band Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, a 4000 mAh battery capacity, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
Despite having a smaller screen than its siblings, the tablet itself isn’t any smaller, so the thickness is 9.2mm while the weight is 322 grams.
So this is a cheap Android 13 tablet, and it’s an alternative to something like the $99 Fire HD 8.
But beyond that, I don’t know about you, but I would rather consider one of the two other 8-inch Alldocube tablets for myself.
