HP is working on a success to the Slate 8 tablet, we knew that much, but we didn’t exactly know the specifics of the project. Today we learn more details about this HP Slate 8 Plus model and the specs are partially available below.


This is all rumor material, so don’t stake your house on it. What we’ve got here is a classic case of a leaked specs sheet, that includes Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, that right from the get go makes this a midrange or low end product. We also get a HiSilicon quad core ARM Cortex A9 processor, that sounds like it’s made by Huawei. The product weighs 350 grams, it measures 7.95 mm in thickness and packs 1 GB SDRAM LPDDR2.

HP Slate 8 Plus will opt for an 8 inch 1280 x 800 IPS display and it will also have a micro SIM Card slot, plus a microSD one. Stereo speakers and a 5 megapixel camera are also bundled. Emerging markets like Russia and India are targeted by the product, with a 299 euro price tag.
