HTC Launch New A101 Android Tablet
HTC just recently stated that it will soon release a tablet in addition to its metaverse-focused Desire 22 Pro smartphone, around a week after making that announcement. It’s best not to get your hopes up, though, as the recently launched HTC A101 is yet another entry-level handset that, despite having a few small upgrades, is nearly identical to its predecessor from the previous year. HTC’s newest tablet, like the HTC A100 before it, has a 10.1-inch 2.5D FHD display with 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution with notably large bezels. The A101’s AI Face-Unlock feature serves as the only biometric verification method because it lacks a fingerprint sensor. Dual stereo speakers, a USB-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack are additional onboard features.
A 12nm Unisoc Tiger T618 chipset, along with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of ROM with expandable storage compatibility of up to 256GB via microSD, controls both the tablet’s hardware and software. Additionally, it has out-of-the-box support for WiFi and Bluetooth 5.0, up to 4G LTE connectivity, and Android 11. The new HTC A101 has a modest 7,000mAh battery capacity, but only supports 10W USB-C charging.
The tablet has a dual-camera arrangement on its back, which is relatively unusual for smart devices in this category and a feature shared with its predecessor. The configuration, which is a little improvement over the A100’s 13MP + 2MP combination, consists of a 16MP primary camera and a 2MP ultra-wide sensor. A 5MP front-facing camera is located on one side of the display’s bezel. Although the new HTC A101’s price or release date has not yet been determined, South Africa is where it will debut. Regarding color possibilities, the company is providing the tablet in Silver or Grey. It is unknown if the product will be made available in other areas.
