Hewlett Packard has launched two new Android tablets… in France. I suspect it won’t be long before we see the new HP 8 G2 and HP Tablet 7 G2 in other countries, although the names might differ from region to region.

Update: The HP 8 G2 is now available in the US for $150

A tablet called the HP 7 Plus G2 also passed through the FCC recently. While that could be a premium version of the new HP Tablet 7, it could also just be the US name of the tablet.

These are all budget devices. They sell for around € 112 to € 180 (including VAT) in France, and the original HP 7 Plus is still available in the US for just $100.

HP Tablet 7 G2

This tablet features a 7 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel IPS display, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage.

It has a 1.33 GHz Allwinner A33 quad-core processor, a microSD card reader, 2MP rear camera, and 0.3MP front-facing camera. The tablet has a mono speaker and 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and GPS.

The HP Tablet 7 G2 measures 7.4″ x 4″ x 0.34″ and weighs 9 ounces. It ships with Android 4.4 KitKat software.

HP 8 G2

This model has a slightly larger display with a 4:3 aspect ratio and more storage, but it’s still a budget tablet.

The HP 8 G2 features a 7.85 inch, 1024 x 768 pixel IPS display, 1GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.

HP’s new 8 inch tablet has stereo speakers, measures 8″ x 5.4″ x 0.32″ and weighs 13.1 ounces, but the rest of the specs are the same as those for the smaller tablet including the processor, cameras, and wireless features.

  1. It is 2014, 3Q… and HP is releasing a tablet with a 1024×768 resolution. SMH

  2. Weird that the 7 incher is 16:9. and interesting that HP is using this 4$ SoC.

    1. It’s all rebranded stuff from someone else.
      Just find the REAL manufacturer in China and buy direct… like HP does!

      1. amen. they are making money from the re-branding… and loading it full of advertise-ware. I would not buy any consumer-level product from HP (only business-level).
