Hisense Sero 8 Pro Shows up at the FCC

Hisense Sero 8 Pro Shows up at the FCC e-Reading Hardware Hisense got a lot of tablet buzz last year when they released the Sero 7 Pro, but they didn't get nearly as much attention when they released the Sero 8, a much less impressive tablet.

But this might change now the the Sero 8 Pro has  cleared the FCC. Hisense's new tablet has been bouncing around Chinese gadget blogs (and it even showed up  at IFA-Berlin a couple months ago), and now it could be coming to the US.

The Sero 8 Pro features a 7.85" display with a screen resolution of  2048 x 1536. It runs Android 4.4.4 Kitkat on a quad-core 1.8GHz Rockchip RK3288 CPU with 2GB RAM. In terms of storage, it has 16GB internal and a microSD card slot.

And as you can see in the photo below, it looks an awful lot like an iPad Mini.

There are a pair of speakers and a pair of cameras (5MP and 2MP). It also has Wifi and Bluetooth. And weighing in at less than 12 ounces, it measures a mere a mere 6.4mm thick.

Given that this tablet has only launched in China (or at least I think it has launched there), hardly any bloggers have had face time with the Sero 8 Pro. That makes it kinda difficult to write anything about it.

In fact, I think it would be best to describe the Sero 8 Pro as vaporware, only that's not really fair to Hisense; they haven't promised to launch it in the US.

But no matter what it is, I can't wait to see it.

    since the Pipo P8 and iFive Mini 4 have been out for awhile with pretty much the same specs, I’m wondering what Hisense will do to differentiate itself.

    also, love how the back of my Sero 7 Pro just pops right off, hope that is the same with the 8 Pro, but not holding my breath.
