Alldocube will release one of the most interesting new 8-inch Android tablets in a while, with the launch of the Alldocube Palm Play Mini G99 aka Alldocube iPlay 50 mini Pro on July 28.
This tablet is a higher specs version of the Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini tablet that launched in May, making the newest version a sort of Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini 2.
Now the first model has already been very popular due to its combination of a low price and nice specs. But the Alldocube Palm Play Mini will have an even higher appeal since it has a more powerful chipset.
The Alldocube Palm Play Mini has a MediaTek MT67899 ‘G99’ processor and Mali G57 MC2 GPU, along with 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of UFS 2.1 storage.
It also ships with Android 13 out of the box and Alldocube’s recently introduced Alldocube OS which is just a regular UI on top of the OS. But this gives people the chance to use virtual RAM too if they want, by dedicating 4GB, 6GB, or 8GB of the storage as additional RAM.
The screen has been kept to a Full HD 8.4-inch screen though, featuring a display resolution of 1920 x 1200. But that’s still good in the segment of 8-inch Android tablets.
It also keeps the battery consumption reasonable. Nevertheless, the new model has a higher batter capacity too, at 5000 mAh with 18W PD charging support.
On top of that, the cameras have been bumped up to a 5MP front camera and a 13MP rear camera.
Other specs of importance includes integrated 4G, Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.2, a BOX mono speaker, GPS/Beidou/Galileo/Glonass location sensors, a USB C port, and a 3.5mm audio combo jack.
It’s thin too, with a thickness of just 7.5mm, and a weight of 306 grams.
So far the Alldocube Palm Play Mini has not been made available for the international market, with power adapters for all regions and global support. But we’ll update if it hits the market internationally too.
The main 8-inch Android tablet in the meantime that has international support is of course the 8.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab A7 Lite which has been updated to Android 13 since launch, and can be bought with 4G as an option if you need that.
