Next to the mid-range tablet Primo 81, MSI also announced a low-end 7-inch Android tablet, namely the Primo 73. Despite its entry level hardware the new tablet has an attractive design with a metal unibody back and a piano black bezel made of plastic around the multitouch capacitive display. 

The MSI Primo 73 is now official, the product page on www.msi.com showing the following technical specifications:

  • Processor: dual-core Allwinner A20 at 1 GHz with Mali 400-MP2 graphics
  • Memory/Storage: 1 GB of RAM; 16 GB of ROM and microSD slot
  • Display: 7-inch IPS capacitive multitouch with 1,024X600 pixels
  • Cameras: 0.3 MP front, 2 MP back
  • Connectivity: WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, mini HDMI, micro USB with OTG support
  • Audio: 0.5 W speaker, 3.5 mm headphone jack
  • Sensor: G-Sensor
  • Operating system: Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • Battery: 3,000 mAh
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.66 lbs; 7.72X4.76X0.37 inches

Unfortunately, MSI claims the specifications above may change without notice and there is no official information on pricing and availability yet. Considering the specs of this tablet, a price between $100 and $140 should be expected.

Just like the Primo 81, the MSI Primo 73 should be available in stores and online in November.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
