Two mid-sized Lenovo tablets made their way through the FCC today, earning approval to operate in the U.S. though there’s still no official word from the Chinese company that the new devices are incoming. For now we’ll have to refer to the new tablets by their model numbers, A5500 and A7600.
The FCC filings are somewhat sparse on details, though we do get a decent sense of what to expect from the A5500, which sports an 8-inch 800 x 1280-pixel display, a Mediatek quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz, and an 8-megapixel rear camera. As for the A7600, all we know is that it has the same 8-inch screen size, though based on its model number we imagine it could be a high-end version of the A5500. Both tablets were tested running Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, though hopefully they’ll launch with 4.4 KitKat or at least Android 4.3.
There’s no word on when Lenovo will announce the new tablets, though with Mobile World Congress just a month away the company is sure to have something new to show off at the Barcelona trade show. TechnoBuffalo will be covering the expo live, and we’ll let you know as soon as either of the new devices makes an appearance.
