I’m combining two Teclast items into one post.
The first item is new photos of the upcoming Teclast P89, which will use an Intel Atom CPU [Google English].
I’m just running two. Hit the link for the rest.
The dual speaker grilles and plastic band at top are interesting. The front looks like any other iPad Mini clone.
And they’re again claiming this 30,000-range result as the AnTuTu score:
Note they claim that’s a legit copy of AnTuTu 3.3.2. Let’s see what kind of score it has when AnTuTu 4.0 is released and applied.
The second Teclast item is a review of the P88s Mini, which is based on the AllWinner A31s CPU [Google English].
It has just 1GB of RAM and claims to be the thinnest clone at just 6.5mm. It also uses the new OneGlass process for the screen (also used by the new “Ice Green” Chuwi V88).
Its distinguishing sales point is that it isn’t bundled with an AC charger. Instead, it charges via USB and can use “an ordinary mobile phone charger” or computer port. This is the first A31s-based clone I’ve encountered that can do that.
I know that USB charging is important for some people. But look at that AnTuTu score again. iPad Mini clones using the Rockchip 3188 CPU are in the 16,000-17,000 range. The Vido Mini One — which uses the 3188 — can also do USB charging. This is not a recommendation. I’m just pointing that out.
I also expect AnTuTu 4.0 might dramatically change some scores (perhaps narrowing the gap between A31s and RK3188), so keep that in mind too.
Final reminder: MultiWindow Android is, so far, available only for the Rockchip 3188 and requires 2GBs of RAM. I don’t know if Google will incorporate multiwindowing into Android 5.0 and if that will also require 2GBs.
