JingPad A1 — The First Linux-Based 5G Tablet

The Android tabletsc have encountered a consistent decrease in fame in the previous decade. Macintosh's iPad setup is extraordinary for diversion and efficiency yet, as an eager Android client and an open-source aficionado, I can't overlook the impediments that the iPadOS or iOS, all in all, bring to the table. Thus, exactly when I thought we'd never see a Linux-controlled tablet, the JingPad A1 sprung up on my news source, and the primary thing that rung a bell was — "What? 

Does the name "Jing" ring a bell? The JingPad A1 is controlled by the JingOS, which we covered a month prior. TL;DR, it's an open-source Linux dispersion made for contact screen gadgets and takes weighty motivation from iPad's UI plan.

The exact name of the processor isn’t disclosed but, judging by the cores and clock speeds, a Unisoc Tiger T7520 system on chip powers the JingPad A1. It is an 8-core SoC with four ARM Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2 GHz, and the remaining four are Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 1.8 GHz. The GPU is an 800 MHz PowerVR GM9446 also found on the MediaTek Helio P90.

The biggest flex of the tablet is its display and design. At the front, there’s an 11-inch 2K AMOLED display with 2,368×1,728 pixels resolution, which, the company claims, covers over 109% of NTSC color space.

If the OS itself wasn’t enough to make it look like an iPad, the 4:3 aspect ratio at the front makes it look almost similar to the latest iPad Pro. The back is made of glass, and the company claims it’s using Coning’s Gorilla Glass.

The tablet comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. The battery is an 8,000 mAh cell. It also has pen and external keyboard support and is equipped with an 8 MP front selfie shooter and a 16 MP rear camera.
