The screen on this Android 4.4 tablet is 7.9 inches wide this time, with a higher 2048 x 1536 resolution than its predecessor had. The processor is a 2.3 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, with 2GB of LPDDR3 RAM, just like on the HP Pro Slate 12.
It has 16GB/32GB eMMC storage, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and optional LTE. So high-end there too. There’s also a 2MP front camera and a 8MP rear camera on the tablet.
The HP Pro Slate 8 comes with the HP Duet Pen, a digitizer with typical feature-rich support. But it’s too early to tell what features this pen will have in this tablet, since the specs regarding the HP Pro Slate 8 are not official yet, but came out of a few leaks from HP’s own website (leaks have been removed since then).
This could be a very interesting tablet, so hopefully HP will officially announce it soon.
