Budget device maker Coby is showing off prototypes for a range of new tablets with faster processors and newer software. ARMDevices caught up with Coby and a trade show in Hong Kong, and got a look at some of the company’s upcoming tablets with dual and quad-core chips.
Right now most Coby tablets ship with single core ARM Cortex-A8 processors like the Allwinner A10 chip. But the company is working on new models with faster ARM Cortex-A9 chips including:
- NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor
- Samsung Exynos 4412 quad-core processor
- Amlogic AM8726-MX dual core processor
- Rockchip RK3066 dual core processor
The new tablets have screen sizes ranging from 7 to 10 inches, and most have HDMI output, USB ports, and front and rear cameras. They run Android 4.0 or Android 4.1.
It’s not clear if every tablet in the video will make it to market, but it looks like Coby plans to continue competing in the low-cost tablet space by offering new models with specs that are more competitive with the latest tablets from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google, and others.
