Remember the Arnova 90 G3 slab, which Arnova introduced last week? Well, it seems Archos’ China-based subsidiary is getting ready to release another budget tablet, called 97 G4 (not to be confused with the Elements Archos 97 Carbon , 97 Titanium HD or 97 Platinum HD). The device was spotted at the FCC website (Federal Communications Commission) and is expected to go on sale in the second quarter of 2013.
Based on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system, the 10.5mm thick tablet comes equipped with a Rockchip RK3066 System-On-Chip that houses two ARM Cortex-A9 cores running at 1.6GHz and the Mali-400 GPU. In addition, the 97 G4 features a 1024-by-768 pixels multi-touch display that measures 9.7 inches in diagonal.
Apparently, users will be further provided with 1GB of internal RAM and 8GB of flash storage that can be expanded by 32GB via the integrated microSD/SDHC card reader slot. Other specs include a Wireless LAN 802.11n adapter, a mini-HDMI interface, one micro-USB 2.0 port, dual cameras (2 x 2MP front and back) and an 8000mAh battery.
Reportedly, the Arnova 97 G4 has an aluminium body and will set you back about $200.
