Chinese tablet maker Onda’s latest device is a 7.9 inch tablet that bears a striking resemblance to Apple’s 7.9 inch iPad mini. But the Onda V818 runs Android instead of iOS and it’s expected to sell for about half the price of an iPad mini.
The Onda V818 features an IPS display, an Allwinner A31S quad-core processor, PowerVR SGX 544 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
It has a 5MP rear camera with autofocus and a front-facing VGA camera. The tablet runs Google Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, measures 7.9″ x 5.5″ x 0.3″ and weighs about 12 ounces.
I’ve found conflicting details for the rest of the specs, so the tablet might have a 5-point or 10-point multitouch display, a 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio display, and a 4000mAh or 5000mAh battery.
In other words, if you’re a stickler for knowing what you’re going to get when you open the box, you might not want to pre-order this tablet just yet.
But if you’re looking for a device that you can trick your friends into thinking is a half price iPad mini, the Onda V818 certainly seems to look the part.
