Announcement. Blackview Tab 8 - a tablet with a foreign name

I recall an ancient joke.

“... What was it called?”
- Natasha.
- A wonderful name.
- Good, but the boy is tormented with him ...

Why am I doing this. Blackview has announced its first tablet. And she called it Blackview Tab 8. Everything would be fine, but the tablet is ten-inch. On the other hand, one cannot but write about such a lapsus. Here are all the news and write. And advertising does not happen bad. Bingo! Bravo to marketers!

Actually, let’s consider the interesting part of the news to be over. The tablet is pretty well balanced. But it cannot be considered outstanding. Everything is pretty trivial.

Officially, the Blackview chipset has not yet been named. But with a probability of 95%, this is Unisoc SC9863A. The chip is two years old. Gaining about one hundred thousand points in AnTuTu. It is reasonable for low-cost devices, but playing heavy games will not be easy.

Everything is good with memory. 4 GB operational, 64 GB permanent.

The screen is classic. IPS-matrix with a diagonal of 10.1 ″, high resolution, 1920 × 1200 (224 ppi).

Good battery with a capacity of 6580 mAh. You can charge other devices via USB Type-C.

Single cameras. 5 MP front, 13 MP rear. It would be better, of course, to swap them. Using such a bandura as a camera is still a pleasure.

There is support for LTE. Wi-Fi, of course, is also there, with dual-band.

Of the curious. Dual speaker on the bottom. They promise a good and loud sound. There is a connector for connecting a keyboard. Perhaps that's all.

The price is still unknown. If it turns out to be humane - well, we have a good bedside device for watching videos and walking around sites.
