The Hisense Sero 8 Pro is an Android tablet with an iPad mini-like screen. This little tablet sports a 7.85 inch, 2048 x 1536 pixel display.

Hisense started showing off the tablet in September, but it just showed up at the FCC website, which suggests that a US launch could be imminent.

The Sero 8 Pro features a Rockchip RK3288 ARM Cortex-A17 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, 802.11n WiFi, and Bluetooth 4.0. It has a 5MP rear camera, a 2MP front camera, built-in stereo speakers, and a 4400mAh battery.

The tablet measures 7.9″ x 5.3″ x 0.25″ and weighs less than 12 ounces.

Hisense is a Chinese consumer electronics company that’s probably better known in the West for its TVs than its tablets. But the Hisense Sero 7 Pro made a bit of a splash in 2013 by offering comparable specs to the original Google Nexus 7, but at a lower price (and with the inclusion of a microSD card slot).

US pricing for the new model hasn’t been announced, but it’s supposed to sell for about €199 in Europe. That’s not a bad price for a tablet with a high-resolution screen and a reasonably fast processor.

  1. I have the VIDAA, I purchased it from a Chinese international seller. I’m having fun with it! It has an 8mp camera- the camera is really why I wanted the tablet. And I love the screen size. I also have the sero7 pro. I would say the sero7 performs better, I’m using DoPa ASOP 4.4.4 custom rom on it.

  2. I have the Sero 8 (non pro) that I bought at wal-mart for $129. It’s been a pretty good tablet. It’s a little slow sometimes and the screen is average but it doesn’t crash, is reasonably snappy and does what I need it to do. Doesn’t seem to have as much of a following as the 7 pro does though.

  3. These tablets were never available for sale in Canada back in the day. They should have been. I don’t expect it to change now either. Their TV’s, yes, they’re here…but no tablets.

  4. There is a great support community on XDA including a very stable root/Kitkat/overclocked ROM and the first inkling of Lollipop. You can get a new Sero 7 Pro for 85 bucks, and for that price (and thanks to the Geeks) it is a rocking tablet!!

  5. I’ve since passed my Sero 7 Pro off to a family member, but it is still a good little tablet.
    Hisense isn’t much for support after one or two updates, but the stuff they make is petty decent.
