This upcoming slate previously received its WiFi certification, and now it surfaces once again. The K81 appears to be a successor of last year's AT&T exclusive Trek 2 HD and is expected to hit the market later this year.

ZTE might not be a big name when it comes to Android tablets, but their slates have been around for a while. Now, what appears to be a successor of the AT&T exclusive Trek 2 HD surfaces on FCC's website. Dubbed K81, this slate already received its WiFi certification, and it looks like its launch is scheduled to take place by November.

The documentation published by the FCC last week does not reveal much, only mentioning LTE and Bluetooth 4.2. However, the previous appearance of the K81 that occurred when the slate received its WiFi certification revealed Android 7.1.1 Nougat as the operating system installed on it.

The ZTE K88, supposedly K81's predecessor, arrived back in July 2016, when it launched exclusively on AT&T as a mid-range offering. Its specs include a Snapdragon processor, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, microSD support, and an 8-inch display, two 5 MP cameras, as well as 4G LTE connectivity.

Since ZTE chose to apply for a regular six-month confidentiality period with the FCC, we should expect the K81 to arrive by the end of November.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
