We heard from the CEO of HTC, Peter Chou last week that there is a tablet in the works as well as wearables. Which got most of us excited. There are a couple of us here at Android Headlines that love HTC’s build quality, but don’t really like their software too much – but that was also before Sense 6. So when we heard that there is a HTC tablet coming, we all got pretty excited. Now there’s a new concept image out of the device, which yes they are fake that’s what “concepts” are. It looks a bit strange to me, it’s basically a stretched out HTC One M8, which is what the tablet is based off of anyways. Hasan Kaymak put this one together for us, and gave us some specs as well.
There’s a 8.9-inch display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 chipset, 3GB of RAM, with storage ranging from 32GB-128GB along with a microSD card slot, 4G LTE connectivity, 8-9mm thick, with Sense 6.5. It’s basically our dream tablet. Partially because of the specs, but also the front-facing speakers. For a while there, Samsung was putting front-facing speakers on their tablets, but for some reason they stopped, and put them on the sides. Their last tablets with front-facing speakers are the Nexus 10 and Galaxy Note 10.1. Hopefully they bring that back because front-facing speakers are pretty amazing.
In the concept images, it is keeping the same 4MP UltraPixel camera and duo-camera module, and say what you want, but on a tablet I don’t think the camera is a big deal. Not as big of a deal as it is on a smartphone. I think the bigger deal is the front-facing camera which you’d use for Hangouts, Skype, etc.
