ZTE is set to launch the 8-inch V81 Android tablet at MWC 2013
It appears that the rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will not be the only new 8-inch tablet at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC), which will take place in Barcelona between 25th and 28th February. Chinese electronics company ZTE will apparently also launch one. Called V81, the slate PC measures 11.07mm (about 0.44-in) thick and is based on an Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
According to the official product’s page, the V81 comes equipped with an unspecified Dual-Core CPU that operates at a frequency of 1.4GHz. Moreover, the tablet’s 8-inch capacitive touchscreen display (4:3 aspect ratio) offers a maximum supported resolution of 1024-by-768 pixels.
Beneath the panel, ZTE’s upcoming portable device features 1GB of RAM and 4GB of flash storage that can be expanded by up to 32GB via the integrated microSD card reader slot. Other specs include one full size USB port, an HDMI interface for hooking up the tablet to an HDTV, built-in GPS receiver, an Accelerometer, Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1 radios.
The V81 sports a 3700mAh battery and two built-in cameras – a 2MP rear-facing shooter and a 0.3MP front-facing web cam for video calls. There is still no word on pricing and availability; however, it is highly probable that we see the tablet on offer at various telecommunication companies around the globe (with a different branding, though).
