Earlier today we picked up on a leaked press render of a 7 inch tablet that Verizon is expected to announce soon, called the Ellipsis 7. More details have emerged about this device today, courtesy of a internal handout that was reportedly given to certain Verizon employees today. Apparently Ellipsis is a new brand of budget oriented devices that Verizon is going to launch come November 7th, with Ellipsis 7 being the first device in this new brand.
The tablet is said to have a 7 inch IPS display with “HD” resolution, presumably 1,280×800. A 1.2GHz quadcore processor is said to be under the hood, model and manufacturer not known at this point in time. The render itself points towards the possibility of a front facing camera, but it can’t be said for sure if there’s one on the back as well. Internal storage is rumored to be 8GB with the option to expand through microSD cards. The Ellipsis 7 is said to have a 4,000mAh battery, which should be enough to power its 4G LTE radio, making it compatible with Verizon’s 4G LTE network in the country. Off contract, the Verizon Ellipsis 7 is believed to cost $249.99. The carrier is said to offer a $100 discount to those who sign a two year contract. Its imperative to keep in mind that none of the information provided here, taken from the leaked handout, has been officially confirmed by Verizon, so there’s no point in forming a notion about Verizon’s budget oriented tablet just yet.
