Hisense may have just unveiled a more or less decent entry-level Sero 8 tablet last month, but it seems the company is too much in love with its Sero 7 series to completely bury it in the past. Introducing the Hisene Sero 7+, the third or fourth sibling that looks a lot like last year’s Sero 7 LT except for a change of heart.
Hisense focuses on trying to fill its shelves in the US market with budget Android tablets, so the specs of the Sero 7 line shouldn’t really be much of a surprise. The Sero 7 LT was already the lowest of the low, to be brutally honest, when compared to the Sero 7 Pro, which, as you might imagine, carries a bit more weight. The Sero 7 LT sported a 7-inch 1024×600 screen, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, and a Rockchip processor.
This time around, the Sero 7+ gets a bit of an upgrade, but still retains much of the low-budget specs of the older tablet, including the same low-res display. A Rockchip still makes up its beating heart, but now upgraded to a RK3168, a dual-core CPU running at 1.2 GHz. While RAM is still the same, internal storage has been doubled, now at 8 GB, plus a microSD slot for additional 32 GB of storage. There is now also a rear camera, though don’t expect quality shots, as it only reaches 2 megapixels. Understandably, there is no 3G connectivity here, with WiFi being the only Internet option.
Hisense hasn’t yet revealed the price of the Sero 7+, but the Sero 7 LT’s $79 tag last year might give a bit of an idea. That said, if you’re in the budget tablet market and have a few more bucks to spare, you might also try considering the Sero 8 as well, which will give you a 1280×800 HD screen, a quad-core 1.4 GHz CPU, and 16 GB of storage, of course for a higher $129 price.
