HTC may be close to launching a cheap Android tablet1
Opposite to what many of HTC’s fans might think, the A100 is not a new smartphone but a tablet with low- to mid-range specs. Spotted by Indian tipster @yabhishekhd (via MobileScout), the HTC A100 is far from being spectacular hardware-wise, but it is easy to overlook the lack of powerful specs when we are talking about a tablet that is likely to cost around $200.
HTC A100 will be powered by a Spreadtrum T618 processor, coupled with 8GB RAM and 128GB expandable storage (up to 256GB). The listing on Google Play Console also revealed that the tablet sports a 10.1-inch FHD display, a dual camera (13MP+2MP), and a massive 7,000 mAh battery.
This will run Android 11 out of the box and will cost $200, although the price mentioned on the product page might be just a placeholder. The A100 is not the only Android device HTC is expected to launch this year, as reports indicate the Taiwanese company is ready to bet big on 5G smartphones.
