Walmart will reportedly bring out its own tablet to rival Apple's iPad.

The Android tablet will be cheap, designed to withstand kids and come from a Chinese supplier, Bloomberg reported Wednesday, based on photos discovered in a database of wireless product applications filed with the US Federal Communications Commission.

It'll be sold under Walmart's ONN store brand, which focuses on cheaper electronics.

Bloomberg said a Walmart spokesperson confirmed the tablet is coming but didn't provide details. How much the gadget will cost or when it might hit store shelves remains unknown.

Earlier this month, XDA-Developers editor-in-chief Mishaal Rahman tweeted some leaked specs, noting that it'd be the first Android Pie tablet not made by Samsung or Huawei.

He also wrote that it'll have a MediaTek MT8163 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage and a 3,500 mAh battery. You'll be able to choose either 8- and 10-inch versions, he added on Friday.

Walmart didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
