Walmart launches new Onn tablets with Android 10 and USB-C
Last year at this time, Walmart launched a duo of affordable Android tablets under the “Onn” brand. Last month, we saw the company was planning to launch two new tablets soon. That time has come as Walmart quietly launched the Onn 10.1 Tablet Pro and Onn 8 Tablet Pro starting at only $99.
The Onn series is undoubtedly Walmart’s attempt to compete with Amazon’s affordable Fire tablets. Amazon actually just upgraded its 8-inch series with USB-C and wireless charging. Walmart is similarly upgrading its tablets with USB-C and specification upgrades across the board.
First, the Onn 8 Tablet Pro has an 8-inch HD LCD display, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. That’s an upgrade from last year’s 1024×600 display and only 16GB of storage. It has a 2.0 GHz processor, 10 hours of battery life, 5MP cameras on front and back, and USB-C for charging. The Onn 10.1 Tablet Pro has a 10.1-inch HD LCD display and 3GB of RAM, but the other upgrades are the same as the 8-inch model.
Like the previous Onn tablets, these new devices feature a pretty clean version of Android. They’re launching with Android 10 and not much tinkering from Walmart other than a handful of pre-installed apps. The screenshots show a Walmart icon in the navigation bar, but this presumably could be removed if you use gesture navigation.
The Onn 8 Tablet Pro costs $99 and is currently in very low stock. The larger Onn 10.1 Tablet Pro costs $129 and is also in very limited stock. If you’re looking for an alternative to the Amazon Fire tablets and their very un-Android-like interface, these Walmart tablets seem to be a great choice.
