Hisense Sero 7+ Clears the FCC

sero-7-plus A replacement for last year's unimpressive Hisense Sero 7LT cleared the FCC this week. With a slower but (probably) better CPU and more storage, the  Sero 7+ is a slight improvement on the Sero 7LT. The new tablet runs an unknown version of Android on a respectable 1.2GHz dual-core Rockchip CPU with 1GB RAM and twice the storage of last year's model.

It has the same screen resolution as the Sero 7 LT, but in addition to the VGA resolution camera found on last year's model the Sero 7+ also has a 2MP rear camera. The Sero 7+ also has Wifi and a microSD card slot but no Bluetooth. There's no word yet on when it will ship, but I expect it to show up as a Walmart exclusive in the next couple months.

The Sero 7+ is the second new tablet that Hisense has released this year. A couple months ago Hisense quietly launched an 8" budget tablet, the Sero 8. I happen to have one on my desk for a review at the moment, and for $129 it is a very nice tablet - if you like 8" tablets. (I will be posting my review tomorrow.)

Coincidentally, the Sero 8 has the same camera specs as listed for the Sero 7+. The camera resolution might not be impressive but the image quality was surprisingly better than what you would expect on a $129 tablet.

Here's the spec sheet from the Sero 7+ user manual on the FCC website:

  • 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display
  • 1.2 GHz Rockchip RK3168 ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core CPU
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • microSD card slot
  • Wifi
  • 2MP rear camera and VGA front camera
  • 3Ah battery
