Chinese manufacturer Teclast has released the M40SE, a 10.1-inch Android tablet. This product is a lower-end model of the Teclast M40, which was released last year and became popular with a lower price tag.
The M40SE is a “lower-end model with lower specs and lower price” of the Teclast M40, which became popular for its UNISOC T618 CPU with an Antutu score of over 200,000 points. The UNISOC T610 CPU is lower in performance than the T618, but according to Teclast, it has an Antutu score of 180,000, which is about the same as the Snapdragon 662 or Helio P70 for smartphones. I think it’s about the same performance as a Snapdragon 662 or Helio P70 for smartphones, and it can play “Uma Musume” comfortably or just barely. If you’re not using it for gaming, I think it’s crisp enough.
The RAM has been reduced to 4GB compared to the M40’s 6GB. The CPU performance is quite high, though, so I would have preferred 6GB. The storage is 128GB, the same as the M40. The display is also the same as the M40.
Other than the CPU and RAM, the only other specs that have been dropped are the camera (from 8MP to 2MP on the inside) and the removal of the earphone jack. Also, the size seems to be different.
The reason why I wrote “seems to be different” is because the M40SE’s value is not the manufacturer’s official value, but the one on Banggood (Banggood often makes mistakes, right?), and the M40 is the actual measurement of the lighter, which is also not the official value (especially the weight, which may vary a little bit). The M40 is the actual measurement of the lighter, not the nominal value. However, as far as these figures are concerned, it is safe to say that there is no big difference.
This is a picture taken by the writer during the actual M40 review, which is completely different from the M40SE product image, but needless to say, the original front of the M40SE is probably closer to this image.
For reference, here’s an actual image of the M40, which has a very similar design to the M40SE, but the top seam, camera design, and power button are different, so you can tell it’s a different chassis. The M40SE is also made of metal, so you don’t have to worry about the texture.
From top to bottom: right side, left side, top side, and bottom side. the earphone jack on the M40 has been removed. The speaker on the underside looks stereo and the manufacturer claims it’s stereo, but you should assume it’s mono. It’s not uncommon for Chinese products to look stereo but actually be mono, so it’s safe to assume that you’ll be lucky if it’s stereo.
