HiSense Sero 8 Pro 6.35mm slate with a 2048 x 1536p display, pegged at €199

Chinese OEM HiSense is planning to launch a new tablet called the Sero 8 Pro which will offer performance-driven components at an affordable price. The slate is said to be tagged at around €199 and it will apparently feature a high-resolution display as well as the latest mid-range processor from ARM.

The HiSense Sero 8 Pro is as the name would suggest, a beefed up version of the Sero 8 which went official a couple of months back for $129. The company hasn’t officially unveiled the tablet as yet, but MobileGeeks managed to spot it at the IFA 2014 expo and has happily shared the details online.

The HiSense Sero 8 Pro slate flaunts an aluminum body and a high-resolution 8-inch display of 2048 x 1536 pixels. The panel is an IPS LCD and should provide good viewing angles. What’s more, HiSense has managed to deliver a thin design of just 6.35mm which is a tab slimmer than the 8-inch Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact from Sony.

Now, the slate won’t be able to match the quad core Snapdragon 801 on the Sony tablet, but it does come with a beefy CPU from Rockchip that’s based on the new ARM Cortex A17 with a 1.8GHz clock speed. Android 4.4.4 KitKat will also be available out of the box.
