HP may come up with three new tablets in the market within next few weeks. If the rumours are to be believed then Huawei is the one manufacturing them but they will be rebranded and tweaked with minor upgrades. These three tablets are being named as HP Slate 10 Plus, HP Stale 8 Plus and HP 10 Plus. The 2 tablets with the ‘Slate branding’ are said to be the rebranded version, whereas HP 10 Plus does not seem to replicate any Huawei model. Let us dig into their technical specifications.

Its performance is supported by a HiSilicon V9R1 quad-core processor (operating at the frequency of 1.5 GHz) and 1GB of RAM.

It will carry the same HiSilicon V9R1 processor, 1 GB RAM and same camera. The price of this tablet has been reported as $400.
