Teclast is about to launch something new, which is a cheap 12-inch Android tablet called the Teclast T60, that will be released from Aliexpress for $225 on October 25: https://teclast.aliexpress.com/store
I find that combination very interesting, since this will be the first time that something as large as a 12-inch Android 13 tablet with decent hardware is launched cheaply.
So let’s dig into the specifications of the Teclast T60 and see what we’ll get.
The 12-inch fully laminated screen has a Full HD resolution display at 2000 x 1200, and relatively narrow bezels around the edges. And it supports Widevine L1.
It’s powered by the 2.0 GHz octa-core Unisoc T616 “Tiger” processor (which should not be confused with the T606), and has 8GB LPDDR4 RAM, and as much as 256GB storage, which is a phenomenal amount of storage for the price. The Unisoc T616 processor is an alternative to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 680 processor, with almost identical performance scores.
And the tablet is preconfigured with support for 8GB more of virtual RAM, while the microSD card slot supports memory cards all the way up to 1TB in capacity.
Internet connectivity options are 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz dual-band a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, 4G LTE with dual nano-SIM for some regions, and a USB-C port.
The tablet cameras are a 5MP front camera with face unlocking, a 13MP dual AI rear camera with LED, and it even has quad speakers with the new Sweet 4 audio amplifiers.
And it’s very well equipped with tablet sensors too, which range from a gyro, light sensor, proximity sensor, gravity sensor, to hall sensor, and a full range of location sensors, including GPS, GLONASS, Beidou, and Galileo.
So the Teclast T60 can be used for anything from gaming, to navigation, to work.
And the proximity sensors even works with posture alert for children, which can alert kids to correct their posture if their distance is too close to the screen.
The battery capacity for the Teclast T60 is 8000 mAh, with 18W PD fast charge support. So Teclast rates the actual battery life to 9 hours long when measured by the video playback standard.
The metal body is 7.5mm thick (or 7.8mm with the rear camera bump), comes in space grey, and weighs just 558 grams. And it has a red power button which distinguishes the power button from the volume rockers.
So what’s not to like here? With this type of combination of specs, price, and screen size, the Teclast T60 has the potential to become a best seller through the autumn and winter. And Teclast has also created a folio cover for it, which supports automatic wake/sleep when opened and closed.
