A few days ago, Amazon announced a change in its business strategy and announced plans to launch a brand new, low-budget tablet aimed at low-end customers. Thanks to GFXBench we can now get a little closer to its technical specifications.
Amazon has for several years been unsuccessful, trying to become a tablet market by offering Kindle Fire devices. However, the device is not sold the best, as it is expensive and can not compete with devices from Asia.
So the American company decided to change its strategy a bit and announced an exceptionally cheap model that would cost only $ 50, which made it very attractive hardware, provided the technical specifications were not too weak. Thanks to GFXBench, we can now better understand the new equipment.
The tablet will have a 6.7-inch screen with 5 touch points and a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels. Its heart will be the quad-core MediaTek MT8127 with Cortex A7 clocked at 1.3 GHz and also supported by ARM MAli-460 MP4 quad-core graphics.
The RAM will be 1 GB, with about 0.8 GB available for the user, while the usable memory is 8 GB or 16 GB, but not expandable. The tablet will offer 2 megapixel rear camera and 0.3 megapixel front camera. The operating system will be Android 5.1 Lollipop.
