Chinese tablet maker Onda debuted a new iPad Air clone, the Onda V975M model, priced at an affordable $160. We’re dealing here with a Retina Display tablet, that actually adopts a bit of the iPad Air design.


The idea is that we get a 9.7 inch slate with an iPad Mini style look and Android as the OS. Onda V975M integrates a quad core processor, most likely a Rockchip or MediaTek, 2 GB of RAM, an 8 core GPU and an 8.3 mm body. The 9.7 inch screen on board supports a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels and we’ve also got a 5 megapixel camera at the back and Android 4.2.2 as the OS.

Apparently, this devices scores over 30,000 points in AnTuTu, a feat rarely achieved these days by sub $200 products. Apparently, this model is sold in China for 999 Yuan and it will be picked up by international retailers soon, so expect to see it in more countries, perhaps even your own. A quick look at some details on the device’s Chinese page shows that the CPU inside is neither of the versions mentioned above, but rather an Amlogic M802 with Mali 450MP GPU.
