The tablet costs a little lower than $200.
Although the market for tablet PCs had almost become non-existent for some years now, the number of Chinese tablets flooding the GearBest store seems to have no stopping. The latest to hit the online e-tailer is the Teclast Master T8, which is currently up for preorders for $199.11.
Even with a very affordable price point, Teclast managed to pull off a mid-range tablet with premium build quality and decent internal hardware. For $200, you’re getting a decent mid-range tablet that runs on Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. At this point, we can’t confirm whether the tablet will receive Android Oreo update or not. Plus, looking at the track record of most Chinese tablets out there, it’s very unlikely that this tablet will receive any further software support from the company.
