Teclast has announced the P85, an 8-inch, entry-level Android tablet. This product is the successor to the existing entry-level tablet “P80 series”, of which there are many variants, and Wintab has reviewed the “P80X” product.
The manufacturer says the price is $100, but it is a new model and the OS is the latest Android 11. The Antutu score is “very mixed”, ranging from 40,000 to 60,000…. So, we can’t say for sure about its performance, but we can say that it is definitely an entry-level CPU that is not suitable for gaming.
It has 2GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, which again is minimalist. The display is an 8-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 1280 x 800, which is low for a recent Chinese Android tablet (1,920 x 1,200 resolution is common).
This product is a Wi-Fi-only device, but there was no disclosure about Wi-Fi support standards. I have listed “estimated” in the specs table, but it may not support the ac standard. In addition, the Bluetooth version is 5.0.
The camera performance is quite tough. As for the number of pixels, it can’t be compared to a smartphone and is low compared to other tablet products. This is also a typical entry-level specification.
The size was not disclosed. However, since it is an 8-inch Android tablet, we can assume that it is about the same. The size of the Teclast P80X that we reviewed on WintaVu was “208 x 124 x 9.8 mm / 315 g”, and I don’t think it’s much different from that.
Here are the Teclast product images that Wintaub readers are familiar with. Again, the side image is pretty amazing. I think it’s only about 3 mm thick. However, Teclast has stated that the width of the left and right bezels is 5 mm, so the front and back images are not heavily embellished.
The Teclast P85 is 8 inches in size, which is definitely easier to handle than the 10.1 inch size. Also, the back seems to be made of metal material. The texture is probably high enough for a tablet in the 100USD class.
Also, the speakers are “stereo”. This image was taken from Teclast’s product page, and I’m pretty sure it’s not actually monaural after all this description.
