One of the absolute cheapest Android 10 tablets are about to launch, as the Teclast P20HD has just started taking pre-orders. It is estimated by the store it premiers with to be released around July 26, for $119:
That’s pretty cheap for a 10.1-inch Full HD Android 10 tablet. Banggood will even have a sale on this tablet during their sales day on July 21, when the price may even be cut a little further.
It’s priced even lower than a Fire HD 10 mostly just because of the processor and the battery. With a 7 hour battery life from a 6000 mAh battery, the battery life is a bit of an annoyance. The 1.6 GHz octa-core Unisoc SC9863A processor with the PowerVR Rogue GE8322 GPU is also underpowered for heavier tasks and complex games, though it will do fine with a lot of always-on features. And besides, it runs Android 10, so the most used global apps will still run smoothly.
4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage also helps a bit, with this being a budget tablet after all.
Featuring a 10.1-inch screen from Sharp, with a Full HD resolution display at 1920 x 1080 also helps. So the screen should be good.
In addition to a somewhat unique design and style for the tablet, the Teclast P20HD has specs such as dual-SIM 4G LTE for some regions (including GPS/A-GPS), dual-band Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 4.0, stereo speakers, 2MP front and 5MP rear cameras, a USB C port, micro-HDMI slot, and 3.5mm audio combo jack.
The weight is 531 grams, while the thickness is 9.3mm.
Years ago, it used to be that the cheapest Chinese tablets came without power adapters and just a bunch of USB cables, but even a tablet as cheap as the new Teclast P20HD comes with charger/adapter included, as well as an external USB cable if you want to charge it from another power source instead.
