Teclast has introduced the P30 Air, a tablet with a 10.1-inch display and an eight-core MediaTek chipset. Surprisingly, the Teclast P30 Air runs Android 12 out of the box too, unlike many competing budget Android tablets. The Teclast P30 Pro will be orderable from US$119.99 with 64 GB of storage and 4 GB of RAM.

Teclast has expanded its tablets range with the P30 Air, a budget offering that features a 10.1-inch display. According to Teclast, the P30 Air's display operates at 1,920 x 1,200 pixels with a 60 Hz refresh rate, 300 cd/m² of peak brightness and a 120 Hz touch sampling rate. Supposedly, the large display sits within a 7.8 mm-thick and a 420 g chassis cast out of an undisclosed metal.

As SoCs go, the P30 Air relies on the Helio P22 MT6762, which MediaTek presented in 2018. Introduced as a mid-range SoC at the time, the Helio P22 MT6762 combines eight ARM Cortex-A53 cores split into two clusters running at different clock speeds. Also, the P30 Air comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of expandable storage. Moreover, Teclast has included a 4G modem that supports dual-SIM connectivity.

Surprisingly, Teclast features GPS connectivity as well, which is welcome to see. Separately, Teclast has equipped the P30 Air with an 8 MP primary camera and a 5 MP front-facing one, a common set-up for budget Android tablets. Moreover, Teclast pre-installs Android 12, still the latest Android version, at least for the next month or so anyway. Unfortunately, it is unclear whether Teclast will ever update the P30 Air beyond Android 12. The Teclast P30 Air will be orderable later this month from retailers like AliExpress, where it costs US$119.99 before import duties and taxes.
