The Acer Iconia One 10 tablet shows up at FCC
When choosing a new Android tablet, there are no longer as many choices around as a few years ago. Even the few major brands still involved in this market do not bother to release new slates too often, but Acer seems to be quite active. Last year, the company launched the 10.1-inch Iconia One 10 tablet with a quad-core MediaTek processor and Android Nougat onboard, and now it looks like an updated version is ready to hit the market.
According to the details revealed in the aftermath of the FCC visit made by the upcoming Iconia One 10, this slate will hit the market with the following highlights: quad-core MediaTek MT8167A processor, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, dual-band WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, front-facing stereo speakers in a sound bar layout, DTS X headphone support, micro USB, a generous 6,000 mAh battery, and Android 8.0 Oreo.
As we mentioned earlier, last year's Iconia One 10 arrived with Android 7.0 Nougat onboard and about the same processor/memory/storage setup as this year's upcoming model. However, there might be some differences — at least — in the display department, where the resolution will go up from 1,280 x 800 pixels to full HD. Even more, the speakers were placed on the sides in last year's model and now they have been moved to an area that looks like a sound bar. The new model is labeled B3-A50FHD, and its predecessor is known as the Acer Iconia One 10 (B3-A50).
There is no word about pricing and availability yet, but we expect a price tag around the US$200 mark and an official launch in the coming weeks.
