The Microsoft Surface 3 may be the first tablet to ship with an Intel Atom “Cherry Trail” processor. But more are on the way… possibly including an 8 inch Android tablet that Notebook Italia spotted this month at the Intel Developer Forum in China.
The tablet, which is powered by an Intel Atom X5-8300 processor appears to be manufactured by BYD, but it has the Lenovo name on it.
It’s not clear if Lenovo will sell this specific tablet, but the prototype/reference design gives us an idea of what to expect from Android tablets with mid-range Cherry Trail processors.
The tablet features an 8 inch, 1920 x 1200 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and Android 5.0 Lollipop software. It has front and rear cameras, WIFi, Bluetooth, and optional support for 3G or 4G networks.
In other words, expect tablets with Intel Atom Cherry Trail chips to look a lot like tablets with 2013-era Intel Atom Bay Trail chips… they’ll just offer better performance, especially when it comes to graphics.
