Rumors of HTC working on an entry-level tablet aren’t new. While reports about an H7 tabletcropped up back in May last year, a Zauba listing (shown below) from June 2015 reveals a 7-inch Desire T7 tablet with dual-core processor, costing around $170.
Now, a device named HTC IV5001-A has been spotted on GFXBench. Like the Desire T7 tablet mentioned above, this new device also has a 7-inch screen (6.9-inch to be precise) and is also powered by a quad-core CPU (Spreadtrum SC8830 SoC).
RAM is 1GB, while internal memory should be 16GB. As for the camera department, both front and back shooters are 5MP. The listing also reveals that the tablet runs Android 5.0 out-of-the-box, and includes connectivity options such as Bluetooth, GPS, NFC, and WiFi.
Reports say the device could be announced at this year’s Mobile World Congress, which is scheduled for next month.
