Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, one or two cameras and G-sensor boost product functionality.


  • Exploring IPS panels: Most China makers use 5 to 10.1in capacitive touchscreen TFT. High-end models adopt IPS versions. The resolution varies from 800x480 to 2048x1536 pixels. Samsung and LG Display are the main providers.
  • Android dominates: Android 4.0 and 4.1 are mainstream. Several makers have announced plans to step up to Android 5.X. Some models run on Windows 7 or 8.
  • CPU: Low-end releases run on domestically sourced processors, mostly dual-core kinds from Allwinner or Rockchip. Upscale products employ MediaTek, Arm, Nvidia or Samsung CPUs.
  • Features: Suppliers are adding Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, one or two cameras and G-sensor. Some releases have a built-in microphone and speaker, and others support more than 50 languages.
