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.
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.
