Ever since the MediaTek MT6592 was launched back in November last year, we’ve been witnessing release after release of smartphones carrying the octa-core MediaTek processor. However, a tablet with some octa-core power was due since long, and Cube seem to have just delivered.
What you find on the Cube Talk U69GT is slightly different from what’s seen on phones; instead of the mobile-optimized MT6592 (operating at 2GHz akin to the MT6592T), the Cube Talk U69GT employs the MT8392 which is better designed for larger devices, i.e., tablets. Talks about a tablet-optimized octa-core chipset from MediaTek initially started back in December, but died down since with no launch to back.

Along with the aforementioned processor, the Talk U69GT boasts a 7-inch screen with a 1920 x 1080p 1200 pixel resolution, fitted using the OGS technology to keep space between the display and digitizer to a minimum. You can expect the U69GT to be a good multitasking device, thanks to the 2GB RAM it has on board along with 16GB of internal storage. For the occasional picture, the 7 incher packs an 8 mega-pixel rear shooter along with a 2 mega-pixel front for your video calls. The entirety of this system is powered by a rather puny 2500mAh battery.
As you can see from the pictures, the device comes in a sleek form factor, reminiscent of some older Sony devices. From what we make of it, the device should have a unibody construction, and like other Talk series devices, have on-board 3G support.
The Cube Talk U69GT is priced 1,499 Yuan, which translates roughly to $241.[Via]
If instead of 2.0/8.0 cameras be 8.0/13.0 would be a very good phablet.
It looks like an attractive device with a unmolested Android. Do you have any idea whether it can make voice calls or SMS?
Can see the respective icons on the dock which suggests that the device is indeed capable of voice calls and SMS.
Haha, of course! Sorry I didn’t notice that myself! Thanks!
2500mAh battery …. it’s a joke?
Hope it were a joke!
No Joke, seriously, what were they thinking – go with the new Novo 7 Flame II with better battery – one site with info on this new model is — iProTablet
It’s looks quite thin. I guess the battery and the cameras where what was sacrificed to keep the price down… They didn’t skimp on screen or processor.
