Do you still remember the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC? Do you remember the last product it launched? Well, that’s not an irony but a test. HTC hasn’t withdrawn from the smartphone market. But it is not there as well. And we still can’t understand why this company doesn’t act like LG (if you remember, LG announced its exit from the industry earlier this year). Maybe the company still hopes to create something that can take it back to the former popularity. Anyway, we are going to inform you that while we are discussing this Taiwanese brand, most likely, it’s preparing a new tablet. Yes, you read it correctly. A new HTC tablet recently appeared on the Google Play Console, code-named HTC A100. This device sports a Unisoc Tiger T618 processor, an 8GB RAM, a screen with a resolution of 1920x 1200, and runs the Android 11 system.
Gizchina News of the week
The Unisoc Tiger T618 chip adopts a 12nm process technology; it has two high-performance A75 architecture cores and six high-performance A55 architecture cores. This chip also integrates the Mali G52 3EE game-level display chip, which is currently used in some tablet computers of Cube and Teclast.
At the moment, this is all we could find about the new HTC tablet.
HTC Tablet Can’t Compete With Xiaomi And Others
Anyway, this is a smart move by HTC. We mean the smartphone market is oversaturated and it’s very difficult to find your place under the sun. That’s why there are only left the main players. But because of the Covid-19 epidemic, lockdowns and online education transformations, tablets have become highly demanded products. As a result, Xiaomi was the firsts that announced it would bring back its Xiaomi Mi Pad line. In a couple of days, after three years of absence, Xiaomi will release its new Xiaomi Mi Pad 5 series again. These handsets are going to be ideal for not only entertainment but also for education, work, gaming and other purposes. This simply means higher screen resolution, more powerful chips, good graphics cards, etc. Thus, Xiaomi (and not only) takes the tablet’s bar to a level higher.
Prior to this, Huawei launched its MatePad 11 tablets that are considered to be high-end products as well. So if previously only Apple was launching top-notch tablets, now, there are at least two Chinese companies that offer their own models. In this sense, the HTC tablet is out of competition. But it still can occupy some market share.
