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.

Coby tablets

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.

    1. That might be true in terms of units — they sell a lot of cheap stuff through the main retail stores as well as on line.

      1. Coby tablets are currently #17, #19, and #23 on Amazon’s bestsellers list in the Tablet category. Above/between them are 7 versions of the Kindle Fire, 4 versions of the iPad, 3 Samsungs, 2 ASUS tablets, the Nexus, and 3 generics (Pandigital, Flytouch, and Fuhu).

        So, yeah, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were in the top 5 brands in combined units shipped.
