Just last week we caught wind that HP could be working on a new tablet called the HP Slate 8 Plus. This is thanks to a listing on the WiFi Alliance website which revealed the device’s name and some of its specs.
While we have no way of confirming whether or not the device is real, @evleaks has recently posted some photos of an unannounced HP tablet which could be the tablet in question, or at least one of them. The photos of the tablets leaked are different from one another.
In one photo it shows a red colored tablet with Beats Audio, while other tablets did not feature it. Some of the designs in question also look more like phones than tablets, thanks to the elongated body, but unfortunately we can’t be sure as to which device could be the HP Slate 8 Plus, at least upon first glance.
As a quick recap for those who might have missed our earlier coverage, the WiFi Alliance website has revealed some of the specs of the tablet. This includes 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi connectivity, as well as support for dual-band 2.4GHz and 5GHz networks. The name itself also seems to hint at a possible 8-inch display, although no display resolution has been specified.
No word on when HP plans on launching the Slate 8 Plus or any of the devices pictured above, but you can be sure we’ll be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more information, so check back with us at a later date for the details.
