The TCL Tab 8 LE is a budget tablet with an 8 inch HD display, a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. But it has one thing going for it that many entry-level tablets do not: support for 4G LTE connectivity.
First announced during the Consumer Electronics Show with a suggested retail price of $159, the TCL Tab 8 LE goes on sale in the US on January 12, when it will be available from T-Mobile and Metro by T-Mobile.
I didn’t write about the tablet last week because I couldn’t get TCL to share any more details than the handful of specs mentioned in the company’s CES press release. But T-Mobile was kind enough to post more details (including the tablet’s user manual).
So here’s what to expect from this $159 tablet:
