Alldocube are back at it again with a new tablet announced called the Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Lite scheduled to be released on October 16.
Having just released the Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Pro which has been overwhelmingly popular on AliExpress it seems too soon to be releasing another Android tablet. Particularly when they already have the iPlay 50 Mini with the UNISOC T606 processor.
What we do know so far is that they’ve opted for a smaller 8″ IPS display at 1280×800 resolution instead of the larger 8.4″ IPS display found in the iPlay50 Mini and Mini Pro. Out of the box the tablet has Android 13 with Google Play and Widevine L1 DRM for Amazon Prime, Disney, Hulu and Netflix HD streaming.
Under the hood it has the Allwinner A523 Octa-core CPU, 4GB RAM + 4GB extended RAM, 64GB storage, expandable microSD storage, 4000mAh battery, USB Type-C=, 5MP/5MP cameras, dual box speakers, WiFi and Bluetooth.
What’s interesting is that Alldocube have opted to use the Allwinner A523 CPU instead of the usual UNISOC T606/T610/T616/T618 CPUs. The A523 was recently introduced in 2023 and offers 4x ARM Cortex-A55 cores @ 1.42GHz and 4x ARM Cortex-A55 cores @ 1.8GHz. This is paired with an ARM Mali-G57 MC1 2EE CPU.
Compared to the UNISOC T606 with 6x ARM Cortex-A55 @ 1.6GHz and 2x ARM Cortex-A75 @ 1.6GHz cores this puts it at about 5% less performance based on benchmarks. So for gaming this tablet would only be suitable for the lightest games and emulation.
The Alldocube iPlay 50 Mini Lite is due to be released on October 16 at AliExpress with a price of $?9.99 USD. This will likely be $99.99 or $89.99 USD.
