HTC is determined to get back to the front lines of the battle. The current Taiwanese manufacturer has little to do with that company that brought us the first Android mobile. Nor with what was left after the partial purchase of Google. However, the brand continues to have a lot of recognition and it seems that HTC Mobile is interested in rebuilding its business.
In June of last year they announced their return to the world of smartphones with the HTC Desire 20 Pro and now new winds are blowing for the manufacturer; on the one hand with the arrival of its first tablet since the days of the Nexus 9 and on the other with the intention to return to the South Korean market after more than 10 years, as reported by ETNews.
HTC’s first tablet in years lands with an almost unknown processor
HTC today announced the new HTC A100, its first tablet in more than seven years. This is not exactly a reference product, but a simple mid-range tablet which will initially be available for the Russian market.
It has a panel 10.1 inch FullHD +, 7,000 mAh battery, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB storage expandable via microSD up to 256 GB.
Comes with Android 11 and incorporates some additions such as stereo speakers, USB C and double rear camera of up to 13 megapixels. Perhaps the most striking is that Unisoc T618 processor so rare, but that we have already seen in other devices such as the ZTE Axon 20 4G that arrived in Mexico.
A tablet that is available through Citilink in gray at a price of 19,990 rubles, about 230 euros at direct exchange.
After Russia and South Africa, HTC will return to South Korea
HTC continues to be one of the manufacturers that is most committed to virtual reality and VIVE continues to launch innovations such as its facial tracker to capture the expressions of our face. But the Mobile division is also keen to show new jobs.
As ETNews describes, after the presence with mid-range devices in markets such as Russia and South Africa, the Taiwanese manufacturer is ready to return to South Korea, after a 10-year hiatus. In December 2012, HTC ended its business in the powerful South Korean market, now they are looking for a new business director to re-enter South Korea, predictably with a new smartphone with 5G connectivity.
At the moment we will have to settle for its first tablet in a long time, but the river sounds and HTC is a brand that became a reference in the Android world. We will see if as Nokia did, it manages to regain a niche in a market with so much competition.
