Tablet sales may be declining but that doesn’t mean those who still have need for them shouldn’t be able to get newer models. Acer is one of the few manufacturers who still churn out new models and this year’s Iconia One 8 just showed up at the FCC.
The Acer Iconia One 8 (2018) is an entry level-tablet as seen from the specs. As evident from the name, this is an 8-inch tablet with a resolution of 800 x 1280. It is powered by a MediaTek MT8167A processor clocked at 1.3GHz paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
The Iconia One 8 (2018) packs a 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing camera. This won’t take great pictures but should be manageable for video calls. There is Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n for connectivity. Battery capacity is listed as 4500mAh.
With respect to design, the Iconia One 8 doesn’t seem to deviate from previous models, at least for the rear. The corners are curved, camera sits in the middle, and there is a small speaker grille at the bottom right corner. It also has a 3.5mm audio jack at the top while the power button and volume rocker sit on the right.
The Acer Iconia One 8 (2018) should launch soon seeing as it has passed through the FCC.
