TCL has introduced quite a number of devices over the past weeks, with new smartphones likes its 40 series, an Android tablet, Windows 2-in-1 laptops, AR eyewear, and more. But, it looks like it still has more to share, as it is now announcing its Tab 8 LE tablet which will be available this week from wireless carriers T-Mobile and Metro in the United States.
The Tab 8 LE is relatively compact coming in at 7.761 x 4.91 x 0.35 inches. It features an 8-inch 800 x 1280 screen, and is powered by a MediaTek MT8766 quad-core processor, paired with 3GB RAM. It will have 32GB of internal storage with room to expand using a microSD card up to 512GB. As far as the cameras, you’re looking at a 5MP unit on the rear, and a 5MP sensor on the front.
Furthermore, you should be able to get all-day use thanks to the 4080mAh battery, and it can be charged via its USB-C port. With all of that being said, the important piece here is that it will have a nano-SIM slot, giving it access to wireless internet connectivity while on the go. Of course, if you don’t want to rely on a cellular connection for internet, you don’t have to and can always use a Wi-Fi connection.
