Walmart announced earlier this week the Gateway brand is being brought back to life exclusively for Walmart, where Evoo will be manufacturing laptops and tablets for the Gateway brand.
The new Gateway laptops are now being launched in the $200 to $100 range with 11.6-inch to 15.6-inch screens, while the Android tablets will be low-powered 8-inch and 10.1-inch tablets.
Since the tablets are both underpowered, they will run the Android 10 Go edition of Android. But at least it has been announced that they will be cheap when they launch, at $69 and $79.
Both Gateway tablets seem to feature the same hardware specifications. For starters, they are powered by the quad-core Allwinner A50 processor, which means that they will perform at about the same level as the cheapest Amazon Fire tablets did 5 years ago.
Beyond that, the Gateway 8″ Tablet (GWAT8-1) and the Gateway 10″ Tablet (GWAT10-1) have such bare necessities as 2GB RAM and 32GB storage, a 2MP front camera, 5MP rear camera, and a USB C port.
Both Gateway tablets will be offered with four different color options and traditionally thick bezels.
