Chinese device maker VOYO plans to launch an Android tablet with a 2 GHz Samsung Exynos 5250 dual-core processor. It joins the growing ranks of tablets featuring the speedy ARM Cortex-A15 processor. But it’s one of the first to sport a large 11.6 inch display.
Padhz reports the VOYO A15 has an 11.6 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS display, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
The tablet runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, features HDMI and USB 3.0, and has front and rear cameras. The company says the 11,000 mAh battery should offer up to 8.5 hours of run time.
The Exynos 5250 processor is the same chip that powers the Google Nexus 10 tablet. While it’s no longer the fastest ARM-based chip on the market (Samsung has an octa-core version, and Qualcomm and NVIDIA’s latest chips are also pretty zippy), it’s still faster than pretty much any ARM chip released prior to late 2012.
Personally, I prefer tablets with smaller screens, but the VOYO A15’s large display should make it a pretty great device for watching videos or pairing with a Bluetooth or USB keyboard for getting some work done.
There’s no word on if or when we’ll see this tablet outside of China, but it’s available in that country for 1399 yuan, or about $228 US.
you can see that item on orientdeal. perhaps it can ship outside of china
I’d get this if it comes to Malaysia but a slim hope at that. Depending on some resellers here willing to import this brand and sell it through forums. Preferably a 32Gb w/ micro SD slot model.
What’s curious though is about Samsung’s Exynos for OEMs’ tactics. It’s not like internationally they’re enjoying a complete Nexus 10 domination far from it I can’t even get a nex10 officially and has been that way since the word Nexus came to vogue? Hell they don’t even have their own Exynos 5250 device yet and somehow these Chinese upstarts are getting the action?
I would appreciate much more 4:3 or at least 16:10
16:9 has only one reasonable use – movies
I concur, 4:3 would be good for PDFs.
not only one but:
Most of the content online is designed for widesceen like you PC monitor and you laptop. This device is not designed for reading books.
actually nothing except of the movies is designed for 16:9, and for sure not websites…
