This 8-inch Android slate has an ultra-thin, light aluminum case, octa-core processor and provides 4G LTE connectivity.

Alcatel OneTouch has an impressive collection of devices on display at IFA 2014 in Berlin, and one of them is the Hero 8 Android tablet. While this is not a high-end device, it will surely provide excellent value when it goes on sale thanks to the octa-core processor under its hood, ultra-thin aluminum case design and 4G LTE connectivity.

These are the Alcatel OneTouch Hero 8 features made public so far:

  • Processor: 1.7 GHz octa-core (brand and model not revealed yet, most likely a MediaTek chip)
  • Memory/Storage: 2 GB RAM; 16 GB internal storage
  • Display: 8-inch IPS capacitive multitouch with 1,200X1,920 pixels and 283 ppi
  • Cameras: 2 MP front, 5 MP back with LED flash
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi, Bluetooth, micro USB 2.0, GPS with A-GPS
  • Operating system: Android 4.4 KitKat
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.68 pounds; 8.23X4.80X0.29 inches
  • Battery: 4060 mAh

The Hero 8's cameras lack autofocus and this tablet does not have a microSD slot for additional storage space, either. Availability and pricing have not been announced yet but we will keep you posted.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
