Japanese carrier KDDI has debuted a new tablet, the Qua Tab 01 model, that’s made by Kyocera and it will be available from July 24th. This product is priced at $304, but there will also be an option with a cheaper price and monthly contract.


This is a LTE model, that comes with WiMax 2+ support and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. Inside the slate there’s a 64 bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, an octa core unit clocked up to 1.5 GHz. Upfront we find an 8 inch LCD display with Full HD resolution, plus a 2 MP front shooter and at the back a 5 MP main camera. The LTE flavour here is Category 4, with a download speed of up to 150 Mbps.

Bluetooth 4.1 and WiFi are in the mix too, plus 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage. The case of the slate is dust proof and waterproof, according to the IPX5 and IPX7 standards. The battery capacity is 4000 mAh. Qua Tab 01 is quite compact, at 7.9 mm in thickness and 286 grams in weight. This looks a bit like a Nexus 7…
