RK3288 powered Pipo lineup of tablets coming soon


Pipo has been among the fastest rising Chinese tablet manufacturers, ever since the company hit it off with dual-core RK3066 tablets in 2012 for 2014 a new range of RK3288 tablets to launch.

Sources reveal that the company is now looking forward to releasing a slew of tablets powered Rockchip’s latest quad-core solution, the Rockchip RK3288. The RK3288 series succeeds the hugely popular RK3188 lineup of chipsets, and is expected to bring improvements in all aspects. The CPU now operates at a 1.8GHz frequency with 4 Cortex A17 cores working in tandem. Graphics are provided by the ARM Mali T-760 chip, which again promises a huge jump in performance.

Pipo will be showcasing multiple devices with the usual screen sizes for tablets in 8.9 inches, 9.7 inches and 10.1 inches. It isn’t very clear at the moment, but the tablets will have resolutions higher than or equal to 1920 x 1080p at least, with some possibly going up to 2560 x 1600p. What’s more, the powerful GPU on the RK3288 will even allow you to playback 4K video!

We’ll know more about these power-packed tablets during the Hong Kong Electronics Fair, which is scheduled to take place next month.

    I would love to know more about release date on the market for RK3288 packed tablets. I need new tablet now and I’m not sure I’ll be able to hold on for the next 6 months

      Me too… looking for something like the the Pipo M6 (4:3 aspect ratio, retina resolution) but with a SOC (especially GPU part) which actually able to handle that resolution!
      I dont care if it is RK3288, A80 or Baytrail-T as long as I get it for <200USD 🙂

          Not with RK3288 but some with Baytrail-T:
          Teclast X98
          Onda V975i
          Chuwi V99i
          But sadly none of them is already purchaseable :/

            Looks promising! Do you have any preference for those three brands? Teclast X98 is my favorite here, but I have no experience with any of them yet. I’ve also find that only Taclast has Z3740D, Onda and Chuwi “only” Z3735D.

    Oh boy. Can’t wait for these. Also can’t wait to see a new GPD gamepad with this proc. It’ll be amazing for gaming, maybe even better than Nvidia Shield.

      They already have KitKat for some RK3188-based tablets, I don’t think it would be an issue here 🙂
