After the launch of Nexus 9, HTC has been away from tablet production. Though, Nexus 9 was joint effort of Google & HTC, but was quite expensive. It was rumored that HTC was working on low-end tablet but it has been confirmed after been spotted at Indian import/export website Zauba, revealing some of the specification.
It had shipped in India with model no. H7 and features 7-inch display, powered by 1.2 GHz quad-core processor coupled with 1 GB of RAM. It packs 16 GB of space as internal storage which can be expanded via. microSD card.
Android Lollipop v5.0 is the OS platform and has dual SIM slots with no word about voice calling. But, it is very obvious that it would be supporting voice calling if they are going to target Indian market.
As in India, students & professional prefer voice calling tablet over tab with no calling support. It is shippind with price tag of $150 costing around Rs. 10,000. Still, very competitive pricing for tablet with brand logo HTC which would support voice calling and has been embedded with dual SIM support.
Indian market is flooded with low cost budget tab but most of them are not reliable as they tend to break after few month of uses. As HTC is coming with new budget tab we hope that they have not compromised their brand name over the low price.
Last Tablet by HTC was Nexus 9 which was first tablet to feature Lollipop OS, powered by 2.3-GHz Nvidia quad core processor coupled with 2 GB of RAM. It display 8.9-inch IPS touchscreen with 6700 mAh battery.
