TCL’s latest product is a cheap Android tablet that is on its way to Verizon. Although the tab will not compete head-to-head with Apple̵7;s latest iPad, the internet-connected tablet is perfect for media consumption, at home or on the go.
The LTE-enabled TCL tab, which looks incredible as Google’s Nexus 7 (2013), is an 8-inch tablet with an FHD + (1200 × 1920 px) screen. Internally, you’ll find an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 CPU, 32 GB of built-in storage (with the ability to expand its memory with a microSD card) and 3 GB of RAM.
You should not expect to take great photos with the tab, but the 5 MP front-facing camera and 8 MP rear shooting game can handle video calls. With the 5500 mAh battery, you should be able to handle a full day of video playback. And if your smartphone needs refueling, TCL’s reverse charging function turns the tab into a battery bank.
TCL states that it will provide at least one major Android OS update and quarterly security updates. So even if the tab runs on Android 10, TCL should at least upgrade the tablet to Android 11 before losing support.
The TCL tab is available today in the store and directly from Verizon’s website for $ 200. The only color option you can choose is Suede Black.
