Acer has taken the wraps off a new Iconia tablet, the Iconia Tab 8. As its name suggests, this tablet features an 8-inch display and notable specs, including Android KitKat and a quad-core processor. No information on pricing has been revealed at this point.

The tablet was revealed recently in Taiwan, and with it came only a few of specifications, with the rest apparently being saved for Computex. Among what is known is a 1920 x 1200 pixels IPS display, quite a bit above the Iconia Tab 7’s 1280 x 800 resolution.

The processor, meanwhile, will be an Intel Atom Z3745 quad-core offering — storage and memory haven’t yet been revealed. Other known specs is 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, stereo speakers, and a microSD expansion slot. The battery life is rated at 7.5 hours.

Though similar in design, it is too soon to determine whether the Iconia Tab 8 will be akin to its younger sibling, the Iconia Tab 7. The specs that have been revealed show both substantial display and processor improvements, but we’ll have to wait for the full specs to make a proper comparison.
