Contrary to popular belief, HTC is still around, but as a shell of its former self. It focuses mostly on low-cost devices but has said it has plans to launch some 5G-ready smartphones soon. Now, the OEM has launched a new affordable tablet called the HTC A100. It is available for purchase in Russia for 19,990 Rubles (US$275).

The HTC A100 packs a 10.1-inch LCD panel with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. It has thick bezels all around the screen, two bottom-firing speakers, and a 5MP selfie camera. We get two camera lenses at the back: a 13MP primary sensor accompanied by a 2MP sensor. Connectivity options include a USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi, two 4G-enabled SIM card slots and Bluetooth 5.0.

Under the hood, the HTC A100 draws power from a UNISOC Tiger T618 SoC. Our benchmarks indicate that its performance is similar to that of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 439 and MediaTek Helio P23, both entry-level offerings. There is only one variant of the HTC A100 with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. One can expand the latter via a micro SD card. Lastly, a 7,000mAh battery powers the tablet. Given the slightly dated SoC, the charging wattage could probably be capped at 10W.

It is worth noting that HTC has little to no involvement in manufacturing the HTC A100. The company has essentially slapped its name on top of a Chinese tablet and called it a day. Nonetheless, its specifications are pretty solid for the price, although they fall flat against competing offerings such as the Galaxy Tab A7.
