HP’s tablet lineup includes a few 8 inch models including the $170 HP 8 budget model and the $330 HP Slate 8 Pro with a faster CPU and higher-resolution display.

But it looks like there’s room for at least one more: an unannounced device called the HP Slate 8 Plus received WiFi certification recently.

HP Slate 8 Plus WiFi certification

The WiFi certification site doesn’t provide many details about the new tablet, but we do know it runs Android, features 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi support, and it supports dual-band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz networks.

The name suggests that the tablet will have an 8 inch screen (or maybe a 7.85 inch display), and the “plus” could be an indication that the tablet will be a little fancier than the plain old HP 8, which has a quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 CPU, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 1024 x 768 pixel display.

A faster CPU, more memory, or higher-resolution display would be nice. But we’ll probably have to wait a little longer for complete specs.

The HP Slate 7 Plus, for what it’s worth, is a tablet with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 display, a 7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage. It sells for $150.
