Honor announces the Tab V7, a new 10-inch Android 11 tablet with pen support and a new MediaTek processor
Honor's freshly-completed product event has introduced a vanilla version of the Tab V7 Pro, the OEM's new flagship (and, heretofore, only) 2021 tablet. It has launched with a smaller 10.4-inch FHD+ display, which has a 90Hz refresh rate as opposed to 120Hz in the Pro.
The V7 still does have a chipset from the Kompanio series specially adapted to tablets by MediaTek; however, it is the 900T in this case, a step down from the 1300T found in the Pro. Nevertheless, the newer tablet still supports all the new MagicUI 5.0 (based on Android 11) features, multi-screen task-sharing, split-screen and Link Turbo X connectivity-enhancing algorithms included.
The Tab V7 also retains Magic Pencil 2 support, as well as DTS: X Ultra surround sound. It also has the same size of battery (7,250mAh) as the Pro, which charges at up to 22.5 watts (W). However, it offers new RAM/storage configurations at lower prices, starting at 1,999 yuan (~US$265) for a 6GB/128GB SKU. Alternatively, there is an 8/128GB model for 2,299 yuan (~$304).
They are the Wi-Fi only options, although the slate also comes in 5G flavor. It goes for 2,599 yuan (~$344), even though it is bumped back down to 6GB of RAM. The Honor Tab V7 will be available to order in China from September 30, 2021.
This new vanilla tablet has been unveiled alongside a bumper crop of hardware that include the latest 14- and 16-inch MagicBooks. However, there is also additions to the range of "Honor Life" ecosystem products, now expanded to include not merely new X2 TWS earbuds (set for release in October 2021 from 179 yuan (~$24)), but wholly new offerings from this brand that include a hand-held massage gun, a home treadmill and an indoor security camera.
