Acer’s 7.9″, 8-Core Android Tablet Leaks on Benchmark Website
Acer’s next Android tablet showed up on the GFX Benchmark website earlier this week. It’s called the Acer Iconia A5-810, and it is promising to be an eye-catching one device.
The Iconia A5-810 runs Android 4.4.2 on a 1.6GHz Mediatek MT8392 CPU with 2GB RAM, and 12GB internal storage. That is an 8-core CPU, and the chip also packs in a quad-core Mali-450 MP4 graphics chip.
With a screen resolution of 1200 x 1920, the 7.9″ display falls somewhere between the sharpness of the newer and older iPad Minis. This tablet also packs in a 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, Wifi, Bluetooth, GPS, g-sensor, and more.
Acer hasn’t announced this tablet so it is difficult to guess when it will be released or how much it will cost. But it is in many ways similar to the Acer Iconia A1-830, which has a lower resolution screen and a dual-core Intel chip.
The Iconia A1-830 retails for $170 online, so I would bet that the Iconia A5-810 is going to be priced around $250 to $300.
