E9, the new HiSense tablet that has already seen the light in China
January 5, 2017 at 13:00
In the tablet sector, we find a context similar to that of smartphones in terms of the number of releases. While the most popular companies with a greater implementation, are selling their terminals at a lower speed and have a lower number of devices throughout the year, other more modest firms based mainly in Asia, step on the accelerator and, as We have reminded you on other occasions, trying to enter the market through a constant drip of new models focused mainly on the middle and input ranges, which gives them an important weight in these segments.
Today we talk about HiSense, a firm that during 2014 and 2015 launched several models in larger formats with striking features such as, for example, the absence of side frames on the screens just like Mirror. This Chinese company would be willing to gain ground during 2017 thanks to a new device called E9 that in its country of origin it could already be on sale since the end of December and of which we will now tell you its most outstanding characteristics. Will this tablet start with an advantage or will it face, like many others, a great competition that will limit its success in other regions?
Improving finishes is something that most companies are taking seriously. Either by reducing the dimensions or by using more rigid materials, resistance is becoming a more demanded requirement. In the case of this tablet we would be talking about a metal housing in golden tones with edges without sharp edges and that would offer a thickness that would not reach 5 millimeters. Their weight, as they claim from GizChina, would be around 340 grams. To the contrary of what happened with his predecessors, in E9 if we attend the presence of small side frames.
The strategy of many Asian companies is to create terminals focused mainly on leisure. Although the 2-in-1 models are occupying a certain role in the trajectory of these companies, the truth is that currently, the public prefers to opt for more stable models although they are somewhat more expensive. To try to meet the needs of users who use their tablets for music and video playback, the new HiSense would be equipped with a panel of 8 inches accompanied by a resolution Full HD 1920 × 1080 pixels. Dispose of two cameras: One front and one rear.
Here we find a series of features with which those of HiSense intend to balance their new tablet. We start with a processor Snapdragon 430, which already saw the light at the end of 2015 and with its maximum speed of 1.4 Ghz, lets record videos in format Full HD and support among others, cameras whose maximum resolution reaches 21 Mpx. At the same time I would have a 3 GB RAM and an initial storage capacity of 32 of which at the moment, no more data have been transcended on itself can be expanded or not thanks to Micro SD cards. Benefits that would place it between the highest of the input range and the most basic of the average.
At the moment, everything related to the software is being a mystery. Although it is difficult to make statements about the OS that will equip, if we take into account the platforms installed as standard in their latest models and those of other similar firms, it would be logical to expect either basic Marshmallow, or this member of the green robot family with some customization layer developed by HiSense. However, we clarify that only with the definitive commercialization of this model can this characteristic be revealed. In terms of networks, they have not transcended more details about this tablet, however, it is known that it will have a drums whose capacity will be around 5,500 mAh
Availability and price
The last HiSense tablet was launched in its home country at the end of December. Nevertheless, it is unknown if he will make the leap to Europe and if so, when would it be. The truth is that this company does have a technical service and even a catalog of all its products through its website in several European countries. The most important Internet shopping portals in the world could also be other sales channels of this model in the future. However, since GizChina have not given more details about what could be its final cost and on the other hand, the confirmation of the rest of its features.
After learning more about the tablet with which this company, which has already become known in the past with other larger terminals in the low cost range and with some smartphones within this series, do you think it could become an option for specific groups of users who want a basic tablet for leisure, or nevertheless, do you think that the rise of other increasingly widespread formats will end up hindering their entry?
