TCL’s D802X device has passed WiFi certification over the past week and this is a big deal since TCL owns Alcatel and we may see a new tablet with their branding. The newcomer stands out through a 2K display and it’s said to be an Alcatel OneTouch model with this resolution.
The new tablet has an 8 inch display and it’s also codenamed Alcatel OneTouch Hero 8. It runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat, integrates a MediaTek MT6595 processor operating at 1.9 GHz and supports a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution. We also get an 8 MP camera at the back and one at the front, plus 3 GB of RAM and 12 GB of storage (probably 16 GB, but with stuff installed less is left). This sounds like a very good tablet to be honest.
These are specs you may find on a Nexus 8 or Nexus 9 device, that’s for sure. This model is expected to debut under TCL branding in China and Alcatel OneTouch globally. After a series of QHD phones launched this year, it’s time to see tablets with such resolutions, although 4K would be the next logical step for them.
