The Alldocube X is a 10.5-inch Android 8.1 Oreo tablet costing $269, and it’s launching mid-August. This is a MediaTek powered Android tablet with one special quirk – we are working with the company to ensure the existence of a development program. That’s right: it’s unlockable, and you’ll be able to develop for it from the get-go. It is powered by the pretty old MediaTek MT8176 SoC, but it’s certainly not the worst.

While it’s certainly not the best-specced Android device we’ve ever seen, it’s not bad at all for the price. Its most comparable Qualcomm processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625, a processor still used in devices being launched today. It’s certainly not terrible, and 4GB of RAM is plenty for an Android device. Problems may arise from the eMMC storage on board, which is one of the slowest types of storage you can get in a tablet. Still, it helps keep costs low.
And that’s without getting into its media capabilities. With a 3.5mm headphone jack and 10.5-inch Super AMOLED display, it’s perfect for multimedia. It’s got a bit of a low PPI at 288, but it’s not terrible. Finally, it has an absolutely huge 8,000 mAh battery included. The tablet supports MTK PE+ Quick Charge 2.0 so that you can charge your tablet pretty quickly too. With such a huge battery, you’ll need some of the fastest charging around for it to keep up. Alldocube also notes that it should retain 85% of its battery capacity after 1000 charging cycles.
While some of those are great selling points, this particular tablet has one unique feature that Android enthusiasts will love. We are partnering with the company to start a development program in the near future once the device launches. We can’t go into detail quite yet, but you should definitely keep your eyes peeled for that. Because it launches with Android 8.1 Oreo, keep in mind that it will also support Project Treble!
