More details about HP’s upcoming HP Slate 8 Plus Android tablet are emerging. We first spotted evidence of the unannounced 8 inch tablet in May, but details were scarce at the time.
Now Comparatif Tablette has found a spec sheet, suggesting it’ll be a more powerful device than the HP Slate 8 (which isn’t surprising, given that HP has put the word “plus” in the name).
The HP Slate 8 Plus will reportedly feature an 8 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, a 1.6 GHz HiSilicon ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor, and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software.
It has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a microSD card slot, micro USB port, and in at least some regions it will be available with a micro SIM slot and cellular connectivity. The tablet has an 18.3Whr battery for up to 6 hours of run time and features a 5MP rear camera and 1MP front-facing camera.
A 3G model is expected to sell for about 299 Euros in France. There’s no word on how much a WiFi-only model will cost if or when the tablet goes on sale in the United States.
