Description

The Ellipsis 8 HD ships with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow onboard. Instead, the tablet is powered by a decent octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor, coupled with 3GB RAM and 16GB of internal memory (expandable up to 128GB via microSD card). The HD version of the older Ellipsis 8 sports an 8-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution. There's also an 8-megapixel camera on the back with f/2.0 lens, while in the front the tablet features a 5-megapixel selfie camera.

Display

  • Display size:
    • 8.0 inches
  • Resolution:
    • 1200 x 1920 pixels
  • Pixel density:

    Pixel density - The pixel density of a display represents the number of pixels over an area of one inch. It’s measured in “pixels per inch”, or ppi. The higher the number, the more detailed and good-looking the display is.

    • 283 ppi
  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
