Some time ago we would have said that Chinese manufacturers were not capable of making a cheap tablet or smartphone and that it was really small in size. Well, what if we tell you that this is not only possible, but it exists, it is called iFive Air, and also is it made of aluminum as the main material?
From now on, buying a Chinese smartphone or tablet will no longer mean buying something of poor quality. So far, we may have found devices that used cheaper materials, or that had a somewhat worse construction, but the passage of time has been making construction can no longer improve much more, and that it is becoming more economical , as well as the manufacturing materials. And thanks to this, Chinese manufacturers are increasingly capable of manufacturing smartphones and tablets similar to those of the big brands, although with a lower, cheaper price.
An example of this is the iFive Air, a tablet built in aluminum, whose characteristics may surprise – just as have published our colleagues from Tablet Zona-. Until a year ago that Apple launched the iPad Air, the Cupertino company’s flagship tablet had wider bezels than this new one. iFive Air. And all with a 9.7-inch screen, thus being a full format. And we talk about the iPad because it is clearly the device on which this new tablet is inspired, in addition to the Samsung Galaxy Tab S, at the same time very similar to the iPad. We do not have too much data on it, since the truth is that the technical specifications of it have yet to be confirmed, but we do know the RAM, which will come in two options, 1 and 2 GB, and the processor, which will be a Rockchip RK3288 quad core. To all this we must add Android 4.4 KitKat and an 8,200 mAh battery.
It must be said that the processor does allow us to get an idea of the possible technical specifications of this new tablet. For example, this chip supports a resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, which is what the new iPad Air would carry, and it also includes support for a camera of up to 8 megapixels. All this in an aluminum tablet with a thickness of only 7.5 millimeters. It has not yet been confirmed when it will be launched or the price of this. However, iFive tends to always make products with very cheap prices, so we can expect it to be the typical price of a Chinese tablet.
