10.1-inch Android Tablet Ulefone Tab A8 Launching In January For $199

Ulefone used to be a smartphone brand with emphasis on rugged smartphones until June last year when they launched their first tablet. And now they're finally ready to launched their second tablet.

It's the Ulefone Tab A8, which will be launched soon for $199. But despite being a Ulefone device, this is not a rugged tablet, just a regular tablet for the consumer market.

And it enters the 10.1-inch Android segment, with a Full HD tablet featuring a 1920 x 1200 resolution display.


Power comes from the Helio A25 chipset, with the octa-core MediaTek MT6762 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage.

And while many Ulefone smartphones have large batteries, the battery in this tablet is a more typically sized 6580 mAh battery with 10W charging and a 9 hour battery life.

On the other hand, it does feature four speakers, a 5MP front camera and facial unlocking, and a 13MP rear camera with LED.

This is also a 4G tablet, with dual-band Wi-Fi 5, BT 5.0, and navigation sensors.

Ports are a USB C 2.0 port, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD card slot, and a Nano SIM tray. But there's also pogo bins on the bottom for an optional keyboard.

The design is square, with the most distinctive feature being the red power button. But other than that it's a 7.4mm thick tablet, weighing 483 grams.

It will also ship with a Flip Stand Cover included. But will it be enough to beat the Lenovo Tab M10 Plus (3rd Gen) and the Samsung Galaxy Tab A8 in the end?
