We commonly see hints about new unannounced devices from places like benchmark websites, as images can leak showing stats or specs of the devices that went through recent benchmark tests. That is what were seeing here today with an apparent new Acer tablet that has yet to be announced by the company. The most notable thing to mention is that the tablet seems to be powered by an Intel Atom CPU with Intel BayTrail HD GPU. The processor according to the benchmark listing shows that it’s an 1,862 MHz quad-core CPU. We can also tell the screen size which seems to be 8-inches with a display resolution of 1,280 x 800.
Storage wise there’s only 10GB to play with(we’ll go ahead and assume that 10GB is what will actually be available for use) and the version of Android that looks to be running on this tablet is Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat which is the newest build version of the software to date. The tablet in question is referred to as the Acer A1-840 on the listing over at GFXbench, which from the looks of the hardware so far will probably end up being a low cost device, we would suspect under $200. Further information on the listing tells us that the tablets display will support at least 5 finger gesture multi-touch, and that it comes equipped with a 4.7MP rear facing camera that also shoots video in FHD with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080, and of course there’s a 2MP camera on the front. On the memory side of things it looks like the A1-840 will come with near 1GB of RAM to run things. That amount seems to have become fairly standard in lower cost devices.(Remember when it was great to have 512MB?)
You can expect to get use out of Bluetooth, WiFi, and GPS from the Acer A1-840 tablet but there apparently will be no NFC support here. So far we don’t have any information telling us when we can expect to see these tablets hit store shelves or online retailers, or where they’ll be available and how much they’ll cost. For now we’ll just have to stick with data about the hardware specs.
