After a number of leaks, HP new Slate 7 VoiceTab Ultra and Slate 8 Plus tablets have been sighted on the company website. While the VoiceTab Ultra is currently on pre-order at HP Singapore website, Slate 8 Plus can been seen at HP France website.
There have been quite a few reports suggesting that the new tablets are rebranded versions of Huawei’s MediaPad X1 and M1 tablets but HP is yet to state anything officially. The same deduction can also made from the presence of HiSilicon processors in the tablets.
Talking about the Slate 7 VoiceTab Ultra first, the tablet features a 7-inch full HD 1920x1200p display, 1.6GHz HiSilicon Balong V9R1 Cortex-A9 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.2. The tablet also packs 16GB of on-board storage, LTE, Wi-Fi, microSD card slot and 5000 mAh battery.
In addition, HP has included a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front camera on the tablet. It can be ordered for 499 Singapore dollars. There is no word on the shipping date right now.
On the other hand, HP Slate 8 Plus includes an 8-inch 1280x800p HD display, 1.6GHz Hisilicon Balong V9R1 ARM Cortex-A9 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM and Android 4.2.2. Slate 8 Plus also features 5MP rear camera, 1MP front camera, LTE, 3G and Wi-Fi.
It will retail for 299 euros. The availability details are a mystery at this point.
We hope to see an announcement from HP in the coming days, which should clarify the availability and release details.
