Onda has officially launched a 4G version of their V919 Air tablet that now supports both 4G FDD and 4G TDD networks along with the usual 2G GSM, 3G WCDMA, etc.
The 4G version still keeps the same general look of the 3G version with its thin and light unibody metal body that measures only 7.5mm thin and features thin and narrow side bezels. But unlike the 3G version of the V919 Air, the 4G version is now powered by an ARM-based MediaTek MTK8752 1.7GHz octa-core processor coupled with a Mali-T760 graphics processor. This also means that the V919 4G Air now only runs Android 4.4 with Onda’s custom tablet UI on top instead of the dual-OS setup on the 3G version.
The new tablet features the same 9.7-inch screen found on Apple’s iPad Air with a display resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels giving it a 4:3 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 264ppi, the screen also features a brightness level of up to 300 lumens. The rest of the V919 4G’s specifications include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and a large 7500mAh battery. Additionally, the Onda V919 4G Air supports dual-band WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, and 4K video playback.
The tablet will be available for only 1199 Yuan for the 32GB storage variant. Whether the company will release a variant with 64GB or higher storage capacity is unknown but is a good possibility.
