A mysterious device going by the name HP Bodhi has recently made an appearance on GFX Bench’s list of result. At first there were not enough details to give us an idea even as to what kind of device was it exactly. Now GFX Bench added a few bits and pieces and changed the name to the HP Slate 8 Pro. Apparently, the device is going to be a follow up to HP’s Slate 7 tablet. Let’s just hope that it will manage to attract more customers than its predecessor, which resulted a bit of a failure.

Obviously, the Slate 8 Pro will feature an 8-inch display. The resolution is said to be 1600 x 1200 pixels, which will work out to a generous pixel density of 250 ppi. Yes, it will be just a tad lower than the Retina display in iPads. As you might have noticed, the aspect ratio is 4:3, again the same as Apple’s iPads, which is something you do not see very often in Android-powered tablets.
The HP Slate 8 Pro packs a 1.8 GHz quad-core Nvidia Tegra 4 processor paired with 2 GB of RAM. Other features include a 5,000 mAh battery and microSD card support for additional storage. The tested model runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, so it would be safe to assume that the Slate 8 Pro will run this particular version of the OS at launch. At the moment there are no details about possible release date or pricing but we will be in the swim so stay tuned for more news.
