Oscal, a sub-brand of Blackview who are a well known brand for their rugged phones have a new budget Android tablet called the Oscal Pad 70 coming soon. This new Android tablet is considered to be the successor to the recently introduced Oscal Pad 60 as it looks identical, albeit with a few improvements.
The main differences are that the Rockchip RK3326S quad-core Cortex-A35 CPU has been replaced with a Rockchip RK3566 quad-core Cortex-A55 CPU and the 3GB RAM has been bumped to 4GB RAM. Unfortunately the RK3566 is still quite dated and at half the performance of the Unisoc Tiger T606 it won’t be big on gaming performance. The 2MP/5MP cameras have been bumped up to 8MP/13MP.
On the software side it’s expected to be running DokeOS_P 3.0 which is Blackview’s version of Android 12 with a number of changes. Mostly around the stock Android launcher, a more tablet friendly interface and memory management.
The rest of the specs are the same as the Pad 70. Includinga 10.1″ IPS HD+ display with 1280×800 resolution, 16:10 aspect ratio and 300nit brightness. 64GB storage with microSD card support, 6580mAh battery with USB Type-C charging, dual speakers and 9.9mm slim with 520g weight.
Given this tablet isn’t a big powerhouse it would still be suitable for light gaming including emulation, ebooks, comics, web browsing and media playback in HD.
No news yet on a release date or price. With the Oscal Pad 60 going for around $100 USD at AliExpress, the Oscal Pad 70 would likely cost $130-$150 USD.
