HTC unveils matte tablet a week after smartphone comeback

Written by admin

A week later Announcing its first smartphone in more than six months, HTC is back with an affordable tablet that stands out little from the rest, both in design and specs.

The HTC A101 is nothing to get excited about

Marketed as the HTC A101, the tablet offers a rather outdated design with thick black bezels around the 10.1-inch Full-HD display and an aluminum back panel with a black camera bump. The latter houses a 16-megapixel main camera and a 2-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, allowing for portrait mode photos. HTC has also added some software wizardry that adds night mode support.

HTC’s dedication to low-end features continues inside, with the Unisoc T618 chipset inside. It’s built on the 12-nanometer process – a far cry from the 5-nanometer process seen in recent high-end chipsets – and is paired with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.

Completing the internal setup is a 7,000mAh battery with support for 10W charging and Android 11 right out of the box, along with HTC’s custom interface. But considering Android 13 is around the corner, the decision to use Android 11 is quite disappointing.

HTC’s tablet will initially be available in South Africa. Pricing and release date information has not been shared and it is unclear whether the HTC A101 will be available in other markets later in the year.
