Chinese chip makers haven’t yet started producing processors based on ARM’s Cortex-A15 designs. But that hasn’t stopped Chinese tablet makers from adding ARM Cortex-A15 chips to their devices.
A growing number of tablet makers are launching Android tablets’s with Samsung’s 1.7 GHz Exynos 5250 dual-core processor. The latest is the Freelander PD800HD.
Geekbuying reports this tablet will features a 9.7 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel IPS display, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
It’s expected to ship with Andorid 4.2 Jelly Bean, and features front and rear cameras, HDMI output, WiFi, and Bluetooth.
The specs are nearly identical to those for the Freelander P80HD tablet, another 9.7 inch tablet with a high-resolution display. But that model features a Rockchip RK3188 quad-core CPU instead of a Samsung Exynos 5250 dual-core processor.
Interestingly, all the Chinese tablets with Exynos 5250 chips I’ve seen announced so far have had the same Retina-like displays, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage. I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re all based on the same reference design.
