Photo Announcement. HTC A101 - an easy upgrade, or who are Xu Lin and Yang Zhengni?

It seems that HTC A101 is a completely passable tablet, about which everyone unsubscribed in just a couple of lines (with a link to Gizmochina or to each other). But, in fact, there are still a couple of interesting moments.

First, about "relatives". For some reason no one mentioned that HTC A101 is a cosmetic update of last year's HTC A100 tablet. A slightly different main camera, the dimensions have changed a bit (but not the appearance), a Pogo Pin connector has appeared (you can connect a keyboard). Everything. The rest of the tablets are identical.

Geography. Initial� Information about HTC A101 appeared on the HTC African website. At the same time, Gizmochina writes about the fact that the tablet is sold in Russia, and not in Africa. Okay, let's go dig.

Googling has shown that A101 really appeared on our sale. It can be found in Wildberries or Yandex.Market. If you dig a little on these sites, it turns out that the seller of the tablet is a certain LLC "Mag Device" born in 2021. The company specializes in trading via the Internet, but does not seem to have its own website. As founders of the company,There are people with speaking surnames Xu Lin (90%) and Yang Zhengni (10%). What does it say? Don't know. Nothing to me.

To the tablet and its characteristics.

Standard ten-inch tablet from among, if not frankly boring and budgetary, then quite simple.

The Unisoc Tiger T618 chipset is somewhere around 250k AnTuTu points. Insecure middle class, in heavy toys you will have to reset the graphics from the maximum to the average values.

There is a lot of memory. 8 GB operational, 128 GB permanent. Plus there is support for memory cards.

Standard screen. IPS matrix �10.1" diagonal (296 cm²). Resolution 1920x1200 (224 ppi). Refresh rate - traditional 60 Hz.

At least a standard battery, 7000 mAh. No fast charges.

For some reason, the rear camera was made double, 16 + 2 MP. (The ancestor HTC A100 also has a dual camera, but 13+2 MP). There is also a front camera, where without it. 5 MP.

There is support for LTE networks, dual-band Wi-Fi, Type-C, gyroscope.

₽19990 ($363) at the start of sales. Those. exactly the same money for which you can still buy an "ancestor" from us.
