Verizon has officially launched the new Ellipsis 8 HD. The new tablet boasts a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor and Android Marshmallow 6.0.1, as well as an inexpensive price tag of $250 USD alongside a couple payment opt. This is an update to the carrier’s previously launched Ellipsis 8, a new budget-tier tablet that, unfortunately, has earned modest-to-low reviews in the couple years since launching.
Verizon Ellipsis 8 HD Tablet Display:
As the name suggests, the Ellipsis 8 HD has an 8-inch display with a 1920 x 1200 resolution (282ppi). There is a 5-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear camera with an f/2.0 lens and the promise of the ‘zero shutter lag.’ Verizon says that the rear camera can take quality photos in low-light conditions, while front camera offers a ‘selfie flash.’
Verizon Ellipsis 8 HD Tablet Features:
The new Ellipsis 8 HD has an updated design with both gray and dark blue color options. In addition to the Snapdragon 617, the new tablet has 16GB of internal storage and support for up to 128GB microSD cards. The battery has a very respectable 5100mAh capacity but is, sadly, non-removable. Overall, this tablet weighs just under 12 ounces.
Other features include a pair of front-facing speakers and ‘smart amp technology’ for ‘full sound,’ as well as a 14.5h run time per charge and up to 14 days of standby time.
