What you need to know

  • There will be an 8 and 10-inch offering, each running Android 10 out of the box.
  • A MediaTek MT8768WA processor will power the tablets.
  • Pricing is expected to be $99 for the 8-inch and $129 for the 10-inch variation.

Yes, Android tablets are still a thing — and there are great options out there. While Walmart isn't known for making the best tech around, it does have some solid options available and seems to be planning a couple of new tablets for its lineup.

The folks over at Tablet Monkeys discovered that the retail giant is planning a refresh for its Onn lineup of tablets from last year. The prior iteration launched with Android 9 in tow, and the new versions are planned to release running Android 10, each with a MediaTek MT8768WA processor to power the devices.

Walmart has an 8 and a 10-inch tablet planned, and like last year, it seems to be running a fairly stock version of Android 10. For the Onn 10.1, it will have a Full HD 10-inch display as well as 3GB of RAM and 32GB built-in storage — upgraded from last year's 2GB and 16GB, respectively. Whereas the 2020 Onn 8 will run a lower resolution display and show up with 2GB of RAM and 32GB storage.

Each of the tablets will sport a 5MP camera on both the front and back. Also planned is a battery cell rated for 10 hours of usage per charge. No word on whether these tablets will have expandable storage or if we'll get Micro-USB in place of the much-preferred USB-C or not.

There's no word on a release date as Walmart hasn't officially announced the devices, but pricing is expected to be $99 for the 8-inch model and $129 for the Onn 10.1.

  • Wonder if they'll ever get a software update?
  • It Walmart so that's a no
  • would love to see affordable tablets like these to NOT have cameras at all (make it even cheaper/thinner/lighter).
    and run stocl android with guaranteed few years of updates.
  • Bt5.0 Wifi-AC 6600mah battery lpddr4 pretty sure it's going to be mtk Helio P22. Also last year's model got multiple security updates. The Walmart button is crap though and preinstalled Walmart apps you cant uninstall sucked. Luckily you could remove with adb commands.
  • They are up on Wal-Mart's web site. Reviews of the 8" tablet are all post-dated June - December of 2020. I have a Lenovo Duet on order. I see no real reason for one of these right now.
