With the A101 getting quietly unveiled , HTC has re-entered the tablet sector after launching a number of cryptocurrency phones.
Update: Information has been updated to reflect that the new tablet is the HTC A101 and not the A100 that was mentioned earlier and introduced in in September 2021 .
The 10.1-inch LCD screen on the HTC A100 has thick bezels on both sides with a resolution of 1,920 x 1,200 pixels. In addition to a dual rear camera combination with a 13-megapixel main sensor and a 2-megapixel ultra-wide, there is space for a 5-megapixel selfie camera in the top bezel.
It has internals because it is a low-cost device, which helps keep the costs down. The HTC A101 has 8GB of RAM and a Unisoc Tiger T618 CPU. Despite their modesty, these internals actually outperform the outstanding Nokia T20, which, despite its flaws, is adequate for online browsing and multimedia consumption.
The 128GB base storage is expandable via microSD card for additional security and expanded file management options. A 3.5mm headphone jack is also present, and software-based Face Unlock allows for biometric unlocking.
The HTC A101 has a sizable 7,000mAh battery hidden inside that can be charged using the USB-C connector at the bottom. Charge rates, however, have not been made public. Although HTC has not specifically said what kind of upgrade plan the smartphone would follow in this regard, Android 11 comes pre-installed on the device. Moon silver and space gray are the two available colors.
The HTC A101 is initially coming to South Africa; however, it is unclear if it will also be available in other places. The tablet’s spec list would undoubtedly put it at a disadvantage when compared to products like the Galaxy Tab series and even Nokia’s long-awaited entry into the tablet market.
