Renders as well as a few hardware specs were leaked online earlier today which are claimed to be for the new Acer Iconia One 10 tablet.
Furthermore, just yesterday the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) certified a device with an identical model number that is shown in the leaked render. Although the photo published by the FCC shows a white tablet, the render of the black version that was leaked today clearly depicts the same device with model number B3-A40.
According to the leaked report, there will be two variants of the device which will feature many similarities aside from a few specs. The base model is expected to have a total of 2GB RAM, a 6,1000mAh battery, and 16GB internal storage. It will also have a 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720. Sources also say the Acer Iconia One 10 tablet will be powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT8167 SoC. Its microSD card slot will also most likely support up to 128GB of external storage. In addition, the tablet will come equipped with a 2 megapixel front sensor as well as a 5 megapixel rear camera, dual speakers on the front, and a 3.5mm audio jack.
If the leaked report is accurate, the only difference between the base model and the beefier and slightly more expensive model will be its internal memory and screen resolution. The pricier unit will have 32GB of internal storage as opposed to only 16GB, and will have a higher resolution of 1920 x 1080. Both models are expected to have the Android Nougat operating system already installed out of the box along with Acer’s enhanced software suite.
At this time we haven’t heard any details regarding the cost or release date of the Iconia One 10 tablet other than it will be available at some point later in the year. Whatever the case, it should be a great device for anyone looking to buy a solid mid range tablet from a trusted brand.
