A week after its return to smartphones, HTC releases an unassuming tablet

Tech Highlights:

  • HTC’s commitment to low-end features continues inside, with the Unisoc T618 chipset sitting on the inside. It’s built on the 12-nanometer process — a far cry from the 5-nanometer process seen in recent high-end chipsets — and is coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. Completing the internal setup is a 7,000mAh battery with support for 10W charging and Android 11 straight out of the box along with HTC’s custom interface. But considering Android 13 is right around the corner, the decision to use Android 11 is quite disappointing.

  • After announcing its first smartphone in more than six months a week ago, HTC has returned with a low-cost tablet that offers little to differentiate itself from the competition in terms of both style and features. Nothing really exciting about the HTC A101 exists. The tablet, which is marketed as the HTC A101, has a dated look, with thick black bezels surrounding the 10.1-inch Full-HD screen and an aluminium back plate that has a black camera bump. The latter is equipped with a 2-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and a 16-megapixel primary camera for portrait mode photography. Additionally, HTC has thrown in some software magic to accommodate night mode.

HTC’s tablet will initially be available in South Africa. Pricing and release date information hasn’t been shared and it’s unclear whether the HTC A101 will be made available in other markets later in the year.
