Lab Hardware Update: New Android and iOS Tablets

New Android and iOS Tablet Charging

We’ve added a bunch of new tablets to our QA labs; mostly Android, but we also picked up a brand-new iPad as well (one of the recently-released 2018 models that are intended to compete with Chromebooks in the education market, primarily).

In addition to our other devices, we now have the following available for testing:

  1. (the aforementioned) 2018 iPad running iOS 11
  2. Asus ZenPad 8 running Android 7
  3. Huawei MediaPad M3 running Android 6
  4. Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 running Android 6
  5. Samsung Galaxy Tab S3 running Android 7

We were a little surprised that none of the Android devices were shipping with Android 8, although a couple may be able to take the OTA update; regardless, we’ll be leaving them running their factory OS versions for the time being.

To shed some light on the devices available for testing, here are their specifications:

iPad (2018):

  • 9.7″ Retina display, powerful A10 chip
  • 32GB/128GB storage, 8MP rear camera
  • Up to 10 hours battery, iOS 11 (upgradeable)

Asus ZenPad 8:

  • 8″ HD display, 16/32GB storage (expandable)
  • Quad-core processor, 5MP rear camera
  • Up to 8 hours battery, Android 7

Huawei MediaPad M3:

  • 8.4″ high-res display, octa-core processor
  • 32/64GB storage (expandable), 8MP cameras
  • Up to 11 hours battery

Lenovo Yoga Tab 3:

  • 8″ HD display, rotatable 8MP camera
  • 16GB storage (expandable), quad-core processor
  • Up to 20 hours battery (longest!)

Samsung Galaxy Tab S3:

  • 9.7″ AMOLED display, powerful Snapdragon 820 chip
  • 32GB storage (expandable), 13MP rear camera
  • Up to 12 hours battery

As usual, check back here periodically if you are interested in seeing what new hardware we’ve added to our labs, and keep us in mind for any compatibility testing needs that you might have. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us; we love to hear from you!
