It looks like Verizon is gearing up for releasing of a new own-branded Android tablet called Ellipsis 7. That is, as long as the latest leaks are true. Since the image comes from @evleaks, we are inclined to believe that indeed they are. Anyway, the Ellipsis 7 is allegedly the first member of a new brand of budget-friendly devices. The carrier remains silent about the slate, but the existence of the trademark filings at the US Patent and Trademark Office has been officially confirmed.
7-inch Verizon Ellipsis Android Tablet
The new trademark is expected to be introduced on November 7th and this is when we will most likely see the tablet hit the stores. The Verizon Ellipsis 7 will be priced at $149.99 with a two-year contract and $249.99 outright.
Not many details about the tablet are known at the moment, and whatever we know, or we think we know, clearly points to an entry-level device. As the name suggests, the Ellipsis 7 is a 7-inch offering. The IPS display offers “HD” resolution, possibly with a pixel count of 1280 by 800. The quad-core processor is clocked at 1.2 GHz, however, we are unsure about the make and model. Our bets are on a MediaTek SoC or Snapdragon 200.
The leaked image reveals a front-facing camera with unknown sensor. A rear camera may or may not be present. The tablet sports a 4,000 mAh battery that is expected to deliver “hours of battery life”, which could be anything from two hours up. Internal memory offers 8 GB for your content and there is a microSD slot for storage expansion. To sweeten the deal a bit, the Verizon Ellipsis 7 packs 4G LTE radio.
