Teclast X80 Pro, a dual boot tablet for under $100


Teclast have been up to some interesting stuff lately. The X98 is a tablet that’s quite popular; the brand even had a shy at making ebook-first tablets, which seem to have worked well.

The X80 Pro is a budget tablet aimed at folks who want flexibility more than anything else. The tablet isn’t the most powerful, but at under $100, it features hardware that could take you a long way. That isn’t all; the X80 Pro even does dual boot.

To take a quick look over the spec sheet of the tablet, it comes with an 8-inch 1920 x 1200 display (fairly impressive), an Intel Atom X5-Z8300 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB on-board ROM, 2 mega-pixel cameras on the front and rear, and a 3800mAh battery.

Teclast claim that the Windows 10 copy that the device runs is genuine Microsoft licensed. The hardware looks capable for a $125 device, but the tablet is currently on sale for $88.

The Chinese tablet industry finally seems to have regained the levels of interest it enjoyed back in the day (when Chinese Android tablets first came out).

    Plz GC give us info on Core-M tablets ^^ That’s the future, not z8300. BTW you should do a round-up of 2016 upcoming tablets instead of relaying infomercials and flash sales. We know you can do it, guys. Sheers.

        As a guy running a Cube T8 Plus eight-inch, 1920×1200 with dual 4G SIMs *as my phone* I can second that. Dig the $130ish price point but that camera weakness shows up in low light. If it fits in your pocket, as these 8 inchers do, it needs decent cams

          Just asked you a question on another post. Does that tablet of yours support 2G and 3G phone calls?

        I agree with you on the hardware and pricetag part, not on the camera part. I don’t see why we should have good cameras in tablets since we already have good cameras in our smartphones and tablets are too big to handle as a camera. I think tablets are the future of personal computers and should concentrate on PC functionalities for best “bang for the bucks”.
        I would buy a camera-less tablet without any kind of hesitation, as far as it has a Core-M CPU (with heatsink…), 6GB Ram, 128SSD, dual OS, USB 3 type C, detachable keyboard + pad for a $300 pricetag.

          i partially am in agreement with your opposition on the cam part PROVIDED that they are REALLY EXPENSIVE to implement … but remember that time when you wouldn’t buy a Laptop without camera ?

          well thats what im talking about … COMPLETE PACKAGES ! so many companies miss out on that !

          as for PC … well , nothing can replace good Ole desktops (im PC Master Race) but i believe many functionalities COULD be downsized to help people manage mobility.

            When you mentioned the tablet’s camera i was thinking of the rear one to take photos and forgot the front one to skype with friends ^^

            You’re right, front camera should be better than the crappy ones we’re getting in chinese tablets. Rear one is useless IMHO.

              and rear cam too man … you NEVER know when can it come handy ..
              at least 6p lens , good optimized 8mpx cam with double tone and PDAF ! this is the BARE minimum for rear cams nowadays. Tablets deserve good rear cams too
