Budget tablet maker Ematic is getting ready to launch a line of devices sporting Android 5.0 Lollipop software. A few days after spotting a 7.9 inch tablet called the Ematic EGQ178 at the FCC website, I found a new listing for a 7 inch model called the EGQ347.

Both appear to be low-power tablets that will probably have low price tags to match.


The 7 inch model features a 1024 x 600 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz Allwinner ARM Cortex-A7 quad-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of storage plus a microSD card reader for up to 32GB of removable storage.

It has a 2MP rear camera, a 0.3MP front-facing camera, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth, and a micro USB 2.0 port. The tablet has a 3,000 mAh battery.

In other words, it has virtually identical specs to the larger model, except that the EGQ347 has a smaller, lower resolution display with a 16:9 aspect ratio rather than a 4:3 aspect ratio.

The most notable thing about both tablets is that they ship with Android 5.0 Lollipop at a time when many budget tablets are shipping with Android 4.x.

There’s no word on the price or release date yet, but expect Ematic’s new tablets to be pretty cheap when they hit the market. The company currently offers a number of Android tablets that sell for between $50 and $150.

  1. This Ematic specs are good enough for a budget tablet.

    Android works well with 512 GB these days.

    Those saying that it “needs” more than 512GB are wrong (or jealous), this tablet will work okay.

  2. I realize there are plenty of people out there that would love to own an Android tablet and don’t have much to spend. But when you see a tablet with 512MB of RAM, just turn away. I don’t care how cheap it is, you are just throwing your money away.
