First Look: The bare-bones Hisense Sero 7 LT

1:28 /

As a stripped down version of the Hisense Sero 7 Pro, the 7-inch "Lite" version has Android 4.1, a dual-core processor, and a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera.

Hey, guys. It's Lynn La from CNET. And today, we're gonna take a look at the Hisense Sero 7 LT. We already took a look at the $150 Sero 7 Pro earlier, but the LT or Lite is basically cheaper, more stripped down version of the Pro. While it's still a 7-inch tablet, its screen has a noticeably grainier 1024x600 pixel resolution. And it runs Android 4.1 out of the box, instead of 4.2 like the Pro. Second, if you thought the 8 gigs of internal memory that the Pro featured was small, the Lite only comes with 4 gigs of RAM. True, it can hold up to 32 gigs of expandable storage, and you're definitely going to want that, by even so. On our unit, we actually got less than 2 gigs of internal memory off the back. Powering the tablet is a 1.6 gigaHertz Dual Core processor, and a 3.4 amp-hour battery, which will give you about 4 hours of continuous video playback. The WiFi-only device also has a 0.3 megapixel front-facing camera, a mini HDMI port, and 1 gig of RAM. Now, just like its counterpart, you can get it exclusively at Walmart for $100, which is $50 cheaper than the Pro. But of course, since the Lite strips down many of the hardware specs from the Pro, you'll understand it when I say you get what you pay for, which isn't much. Again, I'm Lynn. And this has been the Hisense Sero 7 LT.
